Tarek El Moussa and Heather Rae Young's life plan changed exactly one year ago, as it was the day that she said "yes."
On July 25, the couple celebrated the one-year anniversary of their engagement.
"One year ago today I made the best decision of my life by saying yes to spending forever with the most special man," she wrote on Instagram while sharing images from that day. "I remember when he proposed… in that moment everything melted away and I was just staring at my forever person, fully in tears thinking how lucky I was that I got to spend the rest of my life with him."
The couple met while boating with mutual friends on the 4th of July in 2019. They were quickly joined at the hip, and they were living together just four days after their first date. Their happiness has obviously continued.
"Thank you to the man who has put a smile on my face every single day," she continued in the post. "You have shown me what true love and family are all about. I fall more and more in love with you as I watch how amazing of a dad you are with the babies, how hard you work, and how you put family and your loved ones first in your life. You're my best friend, my person, and my rock. Happy 1 year of being engaged baby! Cheers to a lifetime of You & Me."
The "Flip or Flop" star shared Heather's post on his Instagram Story on July 26. For his part, Tarek isn't shy when it comes to gushing about the "Selling Sunset" star.
"You just can't predict what's going to happen. One moment you are sitting there and the next your life is completely different. The second I saw @heatherraeyoung I knew my life would never be the same. She's not only become my best friend but she's also incredible to Tay and Bray," he said on Instagram, referring to the two children he shares with ex Christina Haack.
On her birthday last year, Tarek wrote, "What can I say about this girl! She's my best friend In the world and I wake up every day feeling like the luckiest man alive. We started living together weeks after meeting. No one knew what to expect but she has completely changed our lives. My kids are obsessed with her and for good reason. She takes amazing care of them and shows them so much love."
"We love you so much and we can't wait to make it official!!!…Mrs. El Moussa," he continued. "Thank you for being the person you are. I love you to the moon and back."
The wedding awaits!
