How Heather Rae Young And Christina Haack Work Together To Co-Parent

HGTV's "Flip or Flop" stars real estate agents Tarek El Moussa and Christina Haack as they flip homes in the Orange County, California area. When the series first premiered in 2013, Moussa and Haack were a happily married couple working together to re-sell the houses they worked on (via IMDb). However, in January 2018 the stars finalized their divorce after seven years of marriage because of communication problems (via In Touch Weekly). Thankfully for "Flip or Flop" fans the exes, who have two children together, continue to work together on camera and are heading into their tenth season later this year (via House Beautiful).


A little over a year after Moussa and Haack finalized their divorce, the former met "Selling Sunset" star Heather Rae Young. According to Fox News, the duo hit it off and got engaged in July 2020 with plans to marry in the summer of 2021. Fortunately for Moussa, Haack and Young already have a co-parenting system in place (via US Weekly).

Heather Rae Young is Taylor and Braden's 'bonus mom'

On April 28th, Heather Rae Young spoke with US Weekly about her relationship with Christina Haack and her preparation to be a stepmother to Tarek El Moussa's two children with Christina. She told US Weekly correspondent Christina Garibaldi, "We co-parent very well together. We communicate daily about the kids, and they're the most important thing in the world to all of us. So, as long as the kids are happy, we're all happy."


The realtor also expanded on her relationship with the children. Young explained that Haack and El Moussa's kids, Taylor and Brayden, respect her and view her as a "bonus mom." She said, "They love me. I love them so much, but I think the most challenging [thing] was coming in when they were already 3 and 8 and they're already little people, they already have the personalities, they already had a routine. I came in after the fact. So, just kind of fitting my way into their lives, being too strict or just kind of setting those boundaries and rules and not overstepping boundaries or rules."
