‘Flip or Flop’ Star Tarek El Moussa and Girlfriend Heather Rae Young Hold Hands While Shopping

Going strong! Tarek El Moussa and his girlfriend Heather Rae Young were spotted at Century City Mall in Los Angeles on Thursday, November 21. Could they have been doing some Christmas shopping? Maybe! Regardless of what they bought, one thing’s for sure: they’re doing great based on all the hand holding and smiling during their date.

We’re sure there will be more of that in the upcoming weeks. The holidays will be extra special for the couple this year considering it will be the first of hopefully many they spend together. In addition, the 38-year-old’s kids, Taylor and Brayden, whom he shares with ex-wife Christina Anstead, get along well with Heather, 32.

In fact, Tarek took Heather and Tay out for a fun date night in September, and it was a success. “For the past few years Tay and I have always gone to her favorite steakhouse!” he captioned a photo with his girls. “It’s special to her because it’s a ‘me and her only’ dinner spot. This time, she asked me if we could bring @heatherraeyoung and my heart melted. Heather is just amazing with Taylor, and they adore each other. I just wanted to share our special ‘date night’ with you.”

A few weeks prior, the Selling Sunset star exclusively gushed to Life & Style about how much she loves that she has a close relationship with Tarek’s daughter. “It’s very new and I love it. His daughter and me bonded very quickly,” the blonde beauty said in September. “She was amazing. I think she was really excited to meet me and she loves her dad so much.” How sweet!

While it’s clear that Tarek and Heather are great with kids, they’re not rushing the process of having their own children someday. “I’m at a different point in my life,” Tarek exclusively told Life & Style when asked if he wants to expand his brood. “So, I don’t know, no, not really. I have an amazing 4-year-old and an amazing [9-year-year-old]. I’m trying to wrangle those two, right. It’s good enough for me right now.”

So, what’s next for the couple? They’ve discussed marriage, according to what Tarek told Us Weekly. However, they’re just going with the flow for now!
