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."
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."

Happy happy happy birthday @therealtarekelmoussa since you came into my life I haven’t stopped smiling. When I’m with you the world stops. So excited to share your special day with you. 🥳❤️ You + Me
Already heading back to LA! ✈️ Lots of travel this week. But here is a pic from yesterday’s shoot. . The makeup is heavier than a “normal” day look but it translated so well on camera.
My 3 tips for travel days:
1.Bring your own healthy snacks & treats so you aren’t tempted to eat fast food. 🍎
2. Drinks lots and lots of water 💧 flying dehydrates you & makes your skin icky.
3. Take off your makeup 💄 and use a hydrating moisturizer or serum. .
What are your travel tips?!
Such a fun party this past weekend celebrating something very special. I felt elegant with my hair like this. Definitely a look I’d love to try again! . Dress- @abyssbyabby Showroom- @eveleighstyle Makeup- @makeupangie_mua Hair- @meetmelodymarie Tan- @aesthetics_bymorgan
Our Halloween was so special. We had so much fun Trick or Treating with the kids. Seeing them laughing is priceless. . My life has changed so much and I feel so fulfilled and happy. @therealtarekelmoussa I love you more and more every minute. I love our life together. . What did you guys do for Halloween?🎃
Feeling in a rut?? Change up something!!!
I changed my hair color 2 weeks ago. I’ve been a blondie for many years now, and getting the right color blonde is always a challenge. I’m loving the way it looks & obsessed with my color. I feel an extra pep in my step!! .
You like?? 🤷♀️Help a girl out ❤️
Love getting dressed up with you @therealtarekelmoussa .
We are always on the go and on our days off we tend to just stay in cuddle have quality time & watch movies. But it’s always nice to put on something fancy & go out especially for a good cause. .
And doesn’t @therealtarekelmoussa look so handsome? 😍 .
For date night stay in and watch movies or go out on the town?!? #LARMH and #GiveEasy @LosAngelesRMH
I’m not going to lie, I like to “feel beautiful” but being a woman I have those days where things just aren’t working right & I’m feeling a little less confident. I drive @therealtarekelmoussa crazy on those days......In the best kind of way. 🤪
On those not so feelin pretty days do something that makes you feel good.
And let your beauty shine from within. .
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And you are enough. ❤️
