Tarek El Moussa ditches ‘lonely holidays’ thanks to wife Heather: ‘Never going back’

Tarek El Moussa is feeling thankful for his wife this holiday season.

In a recent Instagram post, Tarek celebrated his wife Heather Rae El Moussa’s ability to make their home a magical place during the holidays, even in the late stages of her pregnancy. He congratulates her for being “an absolute rock star,” and “managing to make every Christmas better than the last.”

“She makes our house FEEL like the holidays 🙂 and puts elves around the house for the kids, dresses us all up in Christmas pjs for family pictures, laughs through the chaos, and makes sure everyone gets gifts that make them feel special, ” Tarek wrote in his caption.

Tarek also reflected on his years spending the holidays on his own, after his divorce from his first wife Christina Hall back in 2016. The two married in 2009 and won over America with their renovation and design show “Flip or Flop,” continuing to film the show even after their divorce was finalized in 2018.


He remembered feeling like “for a while I had some lonely vacations,” and felt blessed that he “never goes back” to that feeling. “I don’t know how she does it, but I feel so lucky,” he continued.

The real estate mogul thanked her husband for his kind words in the comments section, and praised him for everything he does for her, writing “You are my rock. I love you so much” with a heart emoji.

Heather and Tarek began dating in 2019 and were married two years later in October 2021. Less than a year later, the two announced in July 2022 that they were expecting their first child together, later announcing that they were expecting a boy. Although this is the couple’s first child together, it will be Tarek’s third, as he shares daughter Taylor, 12, and son Brayden, 7, with ex-wife Christina Hall.

The couple have been very open about their struggles to conceive, and their journey with IVF before conceiving their baby naturally. Most recently, Heather opened up about a recent trip to the doctor that put her in bed.

She took to Instagram Stories to share that she was “not doing very well,” and that she was in more pain than she had ever been before, eventually revealing that her doctor advised her to rest. While she said bed rest would be difficult for her because she is a busy real estate agent, she admitted “the most important thing is feeling better and taking care of the baby.”

The “Selling Sunset” star shared that she experiences worsening sciatica pain, which is pain along the body’s sciatic nerve that can worsen during pregnancy as the fetus continues to grow and add pressure on the joints and muscles in the body. Johns Hopkins University explains that the sciatic nerve is the longest in the body, running from the back of the pelvis to the back of the thigh.

“I hope this goes away soon,” she said during the Instagram story. “I definitely can’t feel this for the rest of the pregnancy.”

Despite the pain, Heather was able to make the holiday season special for her family. She has posted multiple photos of a photo shoot of the family in matching Christmas pajamas on her Instagram, writing that although it is difficult to manage, she loves doing it.

Although Heather has pain from her sciatic nerve, she still tries hard to make Christmas a magical time for her family.
