Love is in the air! Things are heating up between Flip or Flop star Tarek El Moussa and Selling Sunset babe Heather Rae Young. The two were recently spotted kissing on a boat on July 28, and it sounds like he’s found a great match. One of the most appealing parts about their blooming romance is that they both understand the struggles (and intense scheduling) that come from being on a television show.
“Tarek is very into Heather and likes her a lot … He thinks she has great, positive energy,” an insider gushed to Us Weekly on July 31. The source was sure to note that the 37-year-old hunk especially “loves the fact that she’s a realtor like him and that she’s a reality star because she understands his lifestyle.” The Netflix show that Heather, 31, is featured on deals with the buying and selling of luxury homes in Los Angeles.
If they do decide to get serious with their relationship, the real estate gurus would be a great pair. They were seen locking lips on a boat called Bad Decisions at the Portofino Hotel and Marina in Redondo Beach, California. At one point, the two also cozied up for a slow dance while listening to music with a group of friends.
The feeling seems to be mutual because Heather raved about all the fun in the sun she had the next day on Instagram. “Making decisions with good people. Sunday I was surrounded by positive people that uplift and made me smile from ear to ear,” she captioned a sassy photo of herself sitting on a boat. Tarek packed on the social media PDA and commented, “You make everyone smile from ear to ear,” with a winking emoji.
Although they haven’t confirmed if they are an exclusive couple yet, they seem to be enjoying getting to know each other. Tarek went through a very public split with his ex and Flip or Flop costar, Christina Anstead, after nine years of marriage. They officially divorced in January 2018 and share two children — Taylor, 8, and Brayden, 3. Christina, 36, is now remarried to Ant Anstead and they are expecting a child together.
Considering his ex has moved on and found happiness, it’s only fair that Tarek does the same. Good luck, dude!
