Ever since his divorce to wife Christina in 2018, Flip or Flop star Tarek El-Moussa has been fairly quiet in the romance department…until now.

“It’s official!!!!,” Tarek wrote in an Instagram post alongside photos of he and his new girlfriend. “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 Heather Rae Young. ! I’ll be honest and say I never thought I would meet someone special in my life after the last three years.”

He continued, “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😎 In life you can’t predict the future! I couldn’t predict divorce! I couldn’t predict two cancers! I couldn’t predict my back injury! You just never know what tomorrow brings. Just want to let the world know I met someone special that makes me want to be a better man :) So let’s all welcome @heatherraeyoung into my life. It’s still new and we are both so excited for the future!”

Coincidentally, Young is also in the real estate business and has her own show called Selling Sunset. And yes, Young has already met El-Moussa’s children Taylor and Brayden that he shares with his ex-wife Christina Anstead.

“I introduced her to my kids last night for the first time,” El-Moussa says in an interview with Entertainment Tonight about Young. “My mom, my dad, my mom’s husband, my sister. So, we’re doing it! Very excited.”

El-Moussa made the relationship Instagram official on Thursday (August 8,) showing off a pic of Young kissing him while on the set of the entertainment show.

“I just went through some pretty traumatic things in my life and honestly I was very happy being comfortable on my own and I didn’t realize what I was missing until I found what I was missing,” he explained. “She just makes me feel really good and happy. I was sad for a very long time; I was alone for a very long time, and I feel like she’s really brought me back to life, which is very, very fun to say.”
