Tarek El Moussa shows off bulging biceps en route to the gym… before meeting up with wife Heather Rae Young at Newport Beach restaurant where they first met
Tarek El Moussa and his new wife Heather Rae Young added a healthy dose of leisure to their Southern California lifestyle on Thursday.
The couple decided to take off from work early and head out for some food and drinks at a restaurant on the water in Newport Beach that has a special place in both of their hearts.
But beforehand, the couple were able to share a breakfast meal together, which would be fuel for the Flip Or Flop star’s grueling workout at his local gym.
Hitting it hard: Tarek El Moussa, 40, got in a hard-hitting workout at a local gym in Newport Beach on Thursday, on a day where he cut his workday a little short to meet his wife at the restaurant where he met his wife Heather Rae Young
In an Instagram post, Young revealed that she was able to work from home today, which allowed for her to make a ‘plant-based breakfast’ for her husband.
El Moussa, 40, would eventually arrive at the gym in an all-black ensemble that included sporty black shorts, a matching tank top and sneakers.
With the sun glaring down, the real estate investor and television personality also donned a black baseball cap over his well-groomed short brown hair, as he carried a reusable water container.

Quality time: Later in the day, El Moussa revealed he ‘may have left work early today’ to met up with his wife at a restaurant for a late afternoon cocktail and food
Later in the day, El Moussa cut his workday a little short, in order to met up with his wife for a late afternoon cocktail.
Taking to his Instagram Stories, the reality star confessed: ‘So we may have left work early today,’ he said with a laugh, while sitting on an outdoor patio of Woody’s Wharf in Newport Beach.
‘We are at the place where we first met, so it’s very special,’ Young, 34, chimed in, with an equally infectious smile on her face.
It’s at this point that El Moussa turned the camera phone towards a group of boats parked at the dock behind them to show exactly where they met on July 4, 2019.
After gushing over their tale of love, Young shared that its ‘almost our six months [wedding] anniversary,’ which actually falls on April 23.
Special significance: ‘We are at the place where we first met, so it’s very special,’ Young, 34, chimed in, with an equally infectious smile on her face.

The couple’s chance meeting on that dock nearly three years ago came the year after El Moussa finalized his divorce from Christina Haack after about nine years of marriage.
Despite their split, the onscreen duo would be able to keep any personal strife or differences in check enough to work side-by-side on the remaining seasons of Flip Or Flop, which just wrapped up its 10 season run on HGTV.
The former couple share two children: daughter Taylor, 11, and son Brayden, six.
El Moussa and Young, who’s an actress and real estate agent, ended up tying-the-knot in October 2021.
