Tarek El Moussa Reveals He’s Living With Girlfriend Heather Rae Young, Calls It a ‘Big Change’

Things are getting serious between Tarek El Moussa and his girlfriend Heather Rae Young. The Flip or Flop star revealed in a Jan. 30 Instagram post that he and the star of Netflix’s Selling Sunset have been living together for some time. The couple confirmed their relationship in August 2019. 

Tarek El Moussa isn’t afraid to show how he feels about his girlfriend 

El Moussa is clearly over-the-moon about his relationship with fellow real estate pro Young. His social media is full of happy photos of him and his girlfriend and posts gushing about how much he loves her. 

“She’s just the sweetest little thing that makes ME feel special, not just the other way around!” he wrote in a Jan. 20 Instagram update. “I’m so excited I brought her into my world and introduced her to all of you.”

El Moussa and Young have been sharing a home ‘for a while now’

Given how in love El Moussa and Young appear to be, it’s not a huge surprise that the couple has decided to share a home. The two have been “living together for a while now,” El Moussa shared, adding that “it’s really fun” because they split their time between two homes.

“Our main spot is in Orange County but one or two nights a week we stay at our place in West Hollywood!” he wrote. 

El Moussa’s ex-wife Christina Anstead and her new husband Ant Anstead also live in Orange County. She and El Moussa co-parent their two children, and they all live in the same neighborhood.

“They live a block away from me,” he told Hollywood Life in August 2019.

While the distance between Orange County and West Hollywood is only about 40 miles, El Moussa says his new neighborhood is very different from the OC.

“For me…West Hollywood is a big change!!” he wrote. “You would think it was similar to Orange County but I’m telling you it’s a different world!”

“Does anyone know what I mean when I say Orange County and West Hollywood are completely different?” he asked.

Several of El Moussa’s fans agreed with his assessment of L.A. and Orange County, with one replying that the two places were “completely different.”

Becoming a part-time Los Angeles resident might be a bit of an adjustment for El Moussa. But he’s nonetheless thrilled to have found happiness after a rough few years marked by a very public divorce and multiple health scares. (In recent years, he has been treated for both thyroid and testicular cancer and has also had back surgery.)

“The best part is I now have someone to go to bed with and wake up to every day❤️❤️❤️,” he wrote. “The better better part is that person is @heatherraeyoung!”
