The reality star popped the question on Saturday evening while celebrating their 1-year anniversary. The couple took a boating trip to Catalina Island, California — which is just a short distance away from their Orange County home.
According to reports, Heather was totally surprised by the engagement and thought the trip was only set up for their anniversary.
See The Shots!
Tarek was quite the romantic, and even secretly drove to Running Springs, CA to ask her parents for Heather’s hand in marriage – -which of course they gave.
As for the massive engagement ring, Tarek spent a pretty penny on an eight carat, colorless, emerald cut diamond for his soon to be wife. “The diamond is perfect all the way around, just like Heather, I also picked this ring because 8 is a lucky number,” he told People.com
The couple had been on the romantic vacation since Wednesday (their actual anniversary) and Tarek had been setting up the big moment the entire time.
Tarek and Heather spent most of there time on his massive boat, which he purchased after his divorce from ‘Flip Or Flop’ co-star Christina Anstead. He named the huge vessel ‘Bad Decisions.’
The reality star really had the evening jammed packed with romantic moments, including creating a scrapbook of pictures showing the couple’s first year together. Come on, Tarek, you are making us all look bad!
The couple met on the Fourth of July in 2019, after mutual friends introduced them to each other in Newport Beach, CA.
As we reported, Tarek and Christina finalized their divorce in 2018.
“Tarek and I had such an amazing time celebrating our anniversary with a romantic dinner on the boat! As many of you know, I’m vegan and have been for a while, and sometimes that can make our dinner plans a little bit more complicated, but the chef from @BonAppetitAgency prepared a four-course meal for us with the most amazing vegan options for me! I can’t wait to spend the rest of the weekend with my love @therealtarekelmoussa! ?” Young captioned a set of photos from the trip.
At this point, she had NO idea she was about to get engaged!
Let’s hope someone had a camera rolling — because this all sounds like great footage for a new reality show!!!
