Joining an established family can sometimes be a tricky experience. However, it seems Young was able to have a good experience when she joined El Moussa’s. She and El Moussa’s kids, Taylor and son Brayden.

In 2019, a short time after meeting them, Young shared on Instagram, “Being around the kids has brought me so much joy and taught me so much patience… Love being part of Tarek’s family, from day one I was welcomed with open arms.”

Last year, Young also wrote, “I love being a bonus mom, future step mama!! Watching them grow up in front of my eyes. So loving and so Curious about life.”

In fact, Young’s life with El Moussa and kids feels so great that she does not need to add more children to the mix at the moment.

“I never knew how much love I had to give until I came into these babies lives and as of now I can’t see myself wanting to add another into the family,” she said. “The kind of family we have is special and my heart is so full already that I really don’t feel the need for more.”
