Tarek El Moussa & Heather Rae Young Are Engaged!
Tarek El Moussa and Heather Rae Young are engaged to be married — and his proposal is one of the most romantic yet!
According to People magazine, El Moussa, 38, took his girlfriend of one year, Young, 32, on a boat trip to Catalina Island, their "special place."
Once there, the "Flip or Flop" star was waiting — in a tux — at the end of a path strewn with flower petals, standing in front of a pair of kissing palms.
Young, a realtor on "Selling Sunset," was treated to a red-and pink (her faves) tableaux of blossoms that included roses, peonies, dahlias, ranunculus, butterfly lisianthus, and hydrangeas along the way and "cascading down the palms."
Once she reached him, he got down on one knee in the sand, presenting her with an eight-carat, colorless diamond engagement ring, telling People the gem is "perfect all the way around, just like Heather."
As El Moussa reported, "She said yes!"
Young later posted on Instagram that she was having "the best surprise weekend of [my] life!"
Young was apparently totally shocked that the proposal came when it did, making it all the more enchanting.

The weekend was made possible by El Moussa's intrepid vessel, the "Bad Decisions," which he reportedly bought in the aftermath of his divorce from wife Christina, who has since remarried to TV host Ant Antstead.
Just three days before, El Moussa had gushed of Young — a former Playboy Playmate — that meeting her changed his life. In an Instagram post, he wrote, "Less then a week after our first date, we moved in together and never looked back!... The second our eyes connected and we smiled at each other I knew my life would never be the same."
