EnvError during Heroku push

I added my gmail password to my .env file located in the root directory of my django project. Why is heroku raising an Env error when I push, is there something else I haven't done?

My settings.py file import:

from pathlib import Path
from environs import Env
env = Env()
env.read_env()

my .env file:

DEBUG=True
SECRET_KEY = Secretkeyyy
DATABASE_URL=sqlite:///db.sqlite3
EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD = passworddd

my refence to the .env email variable in my settings.py:

EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD = env.str("EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD")

the error during heroku push:
