'Selling Sunset' Star Heather Rae Young Announces She Is Engaged
Huge congratulations to Selling Sunset star Heather Rae Young who has announced she is engaged to now-fiancé Tarek El Moussa!
The 32-year-old real estate agent announced the news on her Instagram, writing "the future Mrs Tarek El Moussa" alongside an image of Tarek placing the diamond ring on her finger.
Tarek got down on one knee as the pair enjoyed a mega romantic boat trip to Catalina Island to celebrate their one-year anniversary this weekend.
The property tycoon posted the same image on his page, writing "she said yes!" He later told PEOPLE that the island is a "special place" for the pair, explaining Heather was totally surprised, thinking the boat trip was solely to celebrate their anniversary.
But instead, Tarek had secretly organised a breathtaking ombré flower arrangement, made from 5,000 stems of Heather's favourite flowers, including roses, peonies, dahlias, ranunculus, butterfly lisianthus and hydrangeas.
And as Heather walked along the path down to the beach, she was met by Tarek waiting beneath 'kissing' palm trees where he popped the question. So cute.
Tarek had secretly already asked Heather's parents' permission, and for the breathtaking ring he chose an eight carat, emerald-cut diamond.
"The diamond is perfect all the way around, just like Heather," he said.

Referring to the eight carat diamond, he added: "I also picked this ring because 8 is a lucky number."
The couple have been together for just over a year, having met on 4th July 2019 in Newport Beach. They moved in together just a week after their first date.
And a few days ago, Heather posted a series of loved-up photos to mark their anniversary, explaining she couldn't wait to spend the rest of her life with 38-year-old Tarek.
"From the first day I met you, to our first date and our second date when we decided to commit 100% before we barely even knew each other. But we knew what we had was special. We had that butterflies in your tummy, can't eat, can't stop smiling soul mate love," she wrote.
"I always knew it was out there, I knew I deserved to find it, I had given up hope that you were out there, and then there you were. It was unexpected for both of us and it was a moment that changed our lives forever.
"You are my very best friend in the whole world. The man I look up to, admire, adore, best daddy, best heart, kind & most important loyal and honest.
"I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you. Every single day waking up to your sweet face and holding me before bed. I love you beyond anything I could have ever dreamed or imagined. I promise to love you every single day."
No, you're crying.
