Tarek El Moussa and Heather Rae Young are engaged, and the Flip or Flop star appears to be thrilled about it. Page Six says that after just one week of their engagement news, the 38-year-old took to his IG to share his special moment with the 32-year-old.
On his IG on Thursday, El Moussa shared a picture in which he was down on one knee to ask Heather for her hand in marriage. Tarek wrote on his account that one never knows where life is going to take you.
He went on to say if someone told him he was going to be getting married again, he would’ve told them they were crazy. El Moussa commented on the spontaneity of his relationship with her, stating that from one day to the next, things can be so much different.
Fans of Tarek know he has already had children before with his ex-wife, Christina Anstead. They share Taylor and Brayden from their marriage between 2009 and 2018. Since her split with Tarek, Christina has moved on to Ant Anstead.

This is the exact moment I got down on one knee and asked @heatherraeyoung to be my wife! . You just never know where life is going to take you. If you told me 13 months ago I would be engaged today I would have called you crazy. . You just can’t predict what’s going to happen. One moment you are sitting there and the next your life is completely different. . The second I saw @heatherraeyoung I knew my life would never be the same. She’s not only become my best friend but she’s also incredible to Tay and Bray. . Some of you have followed me for years and have supported me throughout my struggles. . I want to say thank you and I couldn’t have gotten here without you! . Now…who wants to see the RING??:) .
According to El Moussa, he knew there was something special about Heather Rae Young the moment he laid eyes on her. Fans of Tarek know he has come a long way since he and Christina first split up, which was intensely reported on by the media.
During a conversation with reporters from Fox News, El Moussa said 2016 was a terrible time in his life. He hit “rock bottom,” and was really struggling on a day-to-day basis. He went on to say those four years between now and then had been a battle.
After some time, however, he chose to get himself back up and continue with his life, which he had to re-build in many ways. Tarek also commented on his relationship with Heather, whom he described as his best friend.
He claimed it was truly a fantastic experience to wake up with someone who wanted to cook for him and make his life better. More importantly, El Moussa says he and Heather Rae Young are looking to do another television show sometime in the future.
