Heather Rae El Moussa (née Young) and Tarek El Moussa have a perfectly balanced, swoon-worthy relationship compensating for the latter’s failed marriage with Christina El Moussa. The Flip or Flop star was devastated in 2018 when he realized Christina had moved on with Ant Anstead. Having dealt with the mental health struggles that ruined his first marriage, fate handed him another chance at love with Heather, whom he wedded at Montecito’s Rosewood Miramar Beach Hotel in 2021.
