The American TV personality told PEOPLE why he decided to make significant changes to his and the actress’s wedding plans, including shifting wedding locations from Mexico to California.
He spoke of how much he and the “Selling Sunset” star initially loved their chosen wedding location in Cabo, Mexico, as well as the hotel they decided to use that was nearby.
The New Wedding Plans
Moussa credited their change of heart to the pandemic as they had stricter restrictions, friends and family with concerns about traveling, and parents with health issues.
In August, Young updated her Instagram fans about the wedding, explaining that she and Moussa previously hired a wedding planner and sent out save the dates before changing plans. The Playboy star said of her upcoming wedding:
“I’m a big believer that everything works out the way it should and after seeing so much of our vision come together today we couldn’t be happier.”
Things seem to be working in their favor as the “Flipping 101” star said his bride-to-be is “much calmer” now that they will be tying the knot “closer to home.”
The soon-to-be groom said, “Everything’s been smooth moving forward,” as Young found a wedding planner she connected with and liked, and they have built a great relationship.
Their Whirlwind Romance
The “Brother Vs. Brother” co-host has been in a relationship with the 34-year-old since 2019.
On July 4, 2019, the lovebirds were first introduced on a boat ride with mutual friends in Newport Beach, California. Young was in a relationship and rejected Moussa’s advances.
On the 28th of the same month, the two were spotted together, looking intimate on another boat ride in Redondo Beach, California.
Moussa updated people on his relationship status with the actress via social media. He uploaded a photo of them and a heartwarming caption detailing how he found happiness in love.

Moussa Tests Positive For COVID-19

Multiple reports say that the news of the 40-year-old’s diagnosis also shut down his partner’s production of “Selling Sunset.”
