'Selling Sunset's Heather Rae Young Reached Out To Boyfriend Tarek El Moussa's Ex Christina Anstead As They Got More Serious

Heather Rae Young is opening up about connecting with Christina Anstead, the ex wife of her boyfriend, Tarek El Moussa.

In a new interview to promote the new season of Selling Sunset, the 32-year-old real estate agent said she reached out to Christina as her relationship with Tarek got more serious.

“I really put myself in other people’s shoes. I’m around the kids [Taylor and Brayden] every day. Tarek and I live together,” Heather explained while on E!’s Daily Pop. “It’s only natural for me as a woman to want to reach out to her as their mom and be like ‘Hey, I’m with your kids. Do you have any tips? Can you help me? I’m new at this. Like I don’t know what I’m doing.’”

She continued, “I was the first girl that he openly dated and introduced to his children since the divorce. I really think about, how would she feel as their mother, and a new girl is living with the kids? It’s only natural for me.”

Heather also revealed that Tarek won’t be on this season of Selling Sunset either. Season two started to film just as the couple started dating. Fans shouldn’t expect to see him on the show at all.

“I would love if Tarek could film with me, but unfortunately, right now he can’t because of his network and his show,” Heather shared. “But when I signed up for a reality show, I signed up to put my whole life out there.”

Heather‘s co-star Chrishell Stause recently opened up about having to see her short marriage to Justin Hartley crumble on screen.

The 37-year-old Flip or Flop star took to Instagram on Thursday (August 8) to confirm that he is dating Selling Sunset star Heather Rae Young.

“it’s official!!!! After more than 3 years on my own I’m so PROUD to say that this beautiful, sweet and talented young lady is my girlfriend!” Tarek wrote along with photos of the 31-year-old Netflix star. “I’ll be honest and say I never thought I would meet someone special in my life after the last three years.”

Tarek continued: “Then…out of the blue @heatherraeyoung walked into my life. The first time I saw her smile she ‘did that thing to my tummy’ and I knew right away I needed to get to know her… so I asked her out!! She said yes😎 In life you can’t predict the future! I couldn’t predict divorce! I couldn’t predict two cancers! I couldn’t predict my back injury! You just never know what tomorrow brings.”

Tarek was married to ex wife Christina Anstead before they publicly split in December 2016 following a dramatic incident involving a gun and a 911 call. The couple had been married for seven years and share two children together – daughter Taylor, 8, and son Brayden, 3.

Christina married Ant Anstead back in 2018 and are currently expecting a son together.

Tarek concluded: I just want to let the world know I met someone special that makes me want to be a better man :) So let’s all welcome @heatherraeyoung into my life. It’s still new and we are both so excited for the future!”
