Tarek El Moussa and his new girlfriend Heather Rae Young are getting into the holiday spirit!
The couple, who began dating over the summer, posed for a holiday photo with El Moussa's two children, all in matching Christmas pajamas. The former "Flip or Flop" star shared the snapshot to Instagram, along with a heartfelt message to his new love.
"I honestly gave up on love until I saw @heatherraeyoung last summer on the boat next to mine," he captioned the shot. "The second I laid eyes on her I knew there was something special about her and I was right! She is absolutely incredible and me and the babies love and adore her."
I’ve dreamt of this life my whole life. To wake up every single day so in love, happy and fulfilled. . Being a hopeless romantic I never gave up. I just adore @therealtarekelmoussa & the kids so much. . Tarek gave me the job of picking out the outfits for our family Christmas shoot. He said “I’ll wear whatever you bring home” hahaha and well.... I decided on matching jammies. And look how cute he looks❤️❤️ . It was such a fun day, but definitely a little stressful wrangling everyone, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Love my new little family!!!!

Young, who is also in the real estate industry as a broker on Netflix's "Selling Sunset," too shared the photograph to Instagram. "I’ve dreamt of this life my whole life. To wake up every single day so in love, happy and fulfilled," she wrote.
"It was such a fun day, but definitely a little stressful wrangling everyone, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Love my new little family!!!!" she added.
El Moussa shares kids Taylor and Brayden with ex-wife Christina Anstead, whom he officially divorced in early 2018 but continued to work with on their popular HGTV show. Anstead is now married to Ant Anstead and the two welcomed son Hudson in early fall.
While Young says she gets along with Anstead, some social media followers have gone tried to stir up drama on the couple's new relationship. This week, she was asked if she is intentionally trying to look like her husband's ex-wife.
"How would I be 'trying to look like someone?'" Heather responded in a text post. "Last time I checked I've looked like this my whole life."
She joked, "Yes, that's my ultimate goal & I even rushed to a doctor to change my whole appearance!!! Come on guys, let's stop being ridiculous."
