Tarek El Moussa Celebrates Heather Rae Young!
On Thursday, the Vende 101 star, 40, shared a sweet tribute to her fiancé in honor of her 34th birthday as the couple counts weeks down until they finally say “I do”.
“It’s just crazy how time flies! I feel like it was just yesterday I announced to the world that I was with @heatherraeyoung and today we mark that we are celebrating her third birthday together,” he wrote. “I can not believe our wedding is weeks away and I am marrying my best friend in the world. I will say it again, she is the best person I have ever met. She has made me a different person and brought me back to life. I’m healthier and happier than I’ve ever been in my adult life. “
He continued: “She takes care of my children as if they were her own. She is selfless, caring and supportive of everyone around her. As a parent, Heather is the type of person we only hope our children become. I wish the world got to fully see how amazing she is. “
“I wake up every day and feel like the luckiest guy in the world. Rabbit … I love you to the moon and back ❤️❤️❤️,” he concluded.

Young left a little love in the comments section and wrote: “I love you with all my heart and I love waking up to you and falling asleep ON you and suffocating 😂😂🔥🔥 you are on fire. 😂😂🔥🔥I am happier than I’ve ever been in my life. You’re my best friend in the whole world. “
The bride-and-groom first met in July 2019 and got engaged a year later when El Moussa asked the question during a romantic boat trip to Catalina Island, California.
The couple recently celebrated their two-year anniversary with a trip to St. Louis. Barts and marked a year of engagement in July.
Although they’ve been planning the wedding for a while – and teasing fans along the way – the couple revealed last month that they had decided to “scrap everything” and go in a different direction, including a whole new place for their special day.
Earlier this month, they shared a few photos from their reception: one of her and the HGTV star shared a smooch in the middle of a ballroom, and another of them was smiling and slowly dancing in the same spot.

“Standing in the exact spot, we have our first dance as husband and wife,” Young wrote to the photos. “I can not wait to marry you @therealtarekelmoussa.”
The wedding will be a first marriage for Young and the second for El Moussa, who was married to his Flip or Flop costar Christina Haack for seven years before the two split in 2016. El Moussa shares two children, daughter Taylor Reese, 10, and son Brayden James, 6, with Haack.

Young often shares his experiences as a “bonus mother” to Taylor and Brayden and told people in July, “Kids are a big part of our lives.”
She added: “I raise the kids with Tarek and I love being a ‘bonus mom’. I love kids. I never knew I was going to have kids in my life.”
