Tarek El Moussa from Flip or Flop and his fiancée Heather Rae Young from Selling Sunset surprised Tarek’s two children with a new puppy. Tarek wanted to give his kids a special gift after all the drama that has been going on in his and their mother, Christina Haack’s, life. Less than a month ago, rumors circulated about a blowout fight between Tarek and Christina on the set of their HGTV series. Tarek reportedly began screaming at Christina after she signaled she and the crew were ready to film.
Now that a few weeks have passed, the pair seem to be on better terms. Tarek reportedly felt very remorseful after the verbal tirade. Since then, Tarek has been focusing on co-parenting his children and spending time with his fiancée. Heather recently announced on her Instagram that the couple completely scrapped their old wedding plans and have started anew. It seems Tarek and Heather have a busy few months ahead of them with their wedding and a new puppy in the house.
On Saturday, Tarek shared a video to his Instagram of himself and Heather surprising his daughter Taylor and his son Brayden with a new puppy. He later shared their reactions to his Instagram stories, which were priceless. “Surprise!” What is that?! What is that?!” he exclaimed, pointing at the dog, who appeared to be a female pug. The HGTV star captioned the sweet clip, “SURPRISE!!! Meet Bugz El Moussa.” Tarek’s kids didn’t realize what was going on at first but were so excited to see their new little family member when they finally picked up on the surprise.
Taylor cuddled the puppy enthusiastically as Brayden gently pet her head while receiving many kisses in return. “Been hiding her from you guys and from them for a week,” he wrote, adding, “But this reaction made it all worth it.” Earlier in the week, Tarek teased his fans about the surprise he had planned for his kids and how he couldn’t wait for them to hear about it. The little ones had been gone over a week as they went on vacation with their mother, Christina. “Missed these babies so much while they were in Cabo,” he wrote on his story. “And now we have a new baby!!“
With a new puppy in their home, Tarek and Heather sure have their hands full. Not only are they planning a wedding, but now they have a new baby to take care of. While taking care of a puppy may be a lot of work, the Flip or Flop star is willing to take on the role of a dog owner for the sake of his children.
