Netflix star Heather Rae Young appeared in Playboy

Young is originally from California, and began modeling at the age of 18. She became Playboy Playmate of the Month in February 2010 and started landing acting roles. She switched over to real estate and passed her licensing exam at 27 years old.

But you know what? I did it! I studied my ass off, I passed the test, and then within my first three months of doing real estate, I sold a $7.2 million house and a $1.5 million condo.”

Now a regular on the Netflix reality show Selling Sunset, Young is prepping for her upcoming nuptials with El Moussa. The two started dating in 2019.

Anstead announced her split from Ant last fall, where the two continue to co-parent their son Hudson. In November, Anstead commented on taking the time to heal.

“Sometimes our calling is bigger than our plans,” she wrote on Instagram in September 2020. “I never thought I would have one divorce let alone two. I never thought I would have 2 baby daddies – but sometimes life throws us curve balls. Instead of getting stuck in these ‘setbacks’ I choose to look at these challenges as opportunities to grow. … I’m messy, I’m real and I’m working on healing. I’m surrounded by extremely powerful women who help me cope, build me up and push me to be better.”
