Turns out, Tarek El Moussa is already close with his ex-wife Christina Haack's new boyfriend, Joshua Hall.

The small world of showbiz just got even smaller, as Tarek revealed that he already knew Joshua, through his fiancee Heather Rae Young.

Heather is pals with Jessica Young, Joshua's younger sister. Heather and Jessica worked together in 2020, and Tarek met Joshua several times.

She confirmed their romance on Thursday, revealing that they had been quietly dating for months.

“The most whimsical/romantic dinner,” the 37-year-old wrote via her Instagram Story alongside a photo of the couple drinking wine and sitting side by side.

Her divorce from her second husband, Ant Anstead, was just recently finalised and he has moved on with Hollywood actress, Renee Zellweger.

Christina and Ant had one son together; she was previously married to Tarek for eight years, and they have two children.

“I never thought I would have one divorce let alone two. I never thought I would have 2 baby daddies – but sometimes life throws us curve balls,” Christina shared with fans in 2020 as news of their split was revealed.

“Instead of getting stuck in these ‘setbacks’ I choose to look at these challenges as opportunities to grow. So while some may judge me and throw around rumors about me, most of you support me.

"And that says a lot about this world and where we are headed. I’m messy, I’m real and I’m working on healing. … We are all a work in progress.”
