Tarek El Moussa And Heather Rae Young Are Engaged After One-Year Dating:
Netflix TV star Heather Rae Young, 32, is set to wed her property tycoon lover Tarek El Moussa, 38. The reality star said yes after her partner popped the question during a romantic boat trip to Catalina Island, California, to celebrate their first anniversary.
Tarek El Moussa bent the knee on Saturday as the pair enjoyed a romantic boat trip in California to celebrate their one-year anniversary as a couple.
The now betrothed couple both revealed the news on their Instagram that included the beautiful moment of him sealing the deal.
“The Future Mrs. Tarek El Moussa!!!!” Heather Rae Young captioned a photo via Instagram on Sunday, July 26, of El Moussa, 38, sliding an engagement ring on her finger.
The HGTV star Tarek shared the same photo writing, “She said yes!”
He later told People that Catalina Island – where the big event took place – is “special” for the couple, and they “love to be on the boat together,” so he knew that was the right place to ask for the real estate agent’s hand in marriage.
The outlet add that Heather was shocked by the proposal and that she thought was a lavish celebration to celebrate their one-year anniversary.
Heather was stunned when she walked down a beach path lined with flower petals and flickering candles and found Tarek El Moussa waiting beneath two “kissing” palm trees that have grown into each other, making them appear as if they are sharing a smooch.
An ombré flower arrangement using over 5,000 stems of Young’s favorite blooms, including roses, peonies, dahlias, ranunculus, butterfly lisianthus and hydrangeas, cascaded down the palms. Shades of red and pink, Young’s two favorite colors, made up the color scheme.

Dressed in a tuxedo, Tarek El Moussa got down on one knee in the sand and asked for Heather Rae Young’s hand in marriage. The father of two revealed that in preparation for the big moment, he secretly drove to Running Springs, CA, to ask her parents for their blessing, which they gave.
Tarek El Moussa chose an eight carat, colorless, emerald-cut diamond for the engagement ring. “The diamond is perfect all the way around, just like Heather,” El Moussa told the outlet about of his selection. “I also picked this ring because 8 is a lucky number.”
After the proposal, Heather and Tarek sat down for a special dinner inside a private beach cabana, which Tarek El Moussa had decked out with even more flowers and a hot pink-and-red custom neon sign that read “The Future Mrs. El Moussa.”
The couple were first linked in July 2019 after they were spotted getting cozy on a boat in Redondo Beach, California. The soon-to-be husband and wife took to social media to announce their relationship in Aug. 2019 so it’s no surprise they would do the same to announce their engagement.
“It’s official!!!! After more than 3 years on my own I’m so PROUD to say that this beautiful, sweet and talented young lady is my girlfriend!” Tarek exclaimed in the caption for a series of PDA-filled photos of the two of them.
“I’ll be honest and say I never thought I would meet someone special in my life. Then…out of the blue @heatherraeyoung walked into my life,” Tarek gushed in the caption next to a pic of the couple. “The first time I saw her smile she ‘did that thing to my tummy’ and I knew right away I needed to get to know her… so I asked her out!! She said yes.”
Tarek El Moussa was previously married to Anstead, 37, from 2009 to 2018. The former couple share daughter Taylor, 9, and son Brayden, 4. El Moussa split publicly from Anstead in December 2016. They finalized their divorce in January 2018 and she has since married British TV star Ant Anstead.
