“I’ll be honest and say I never thought I would meet someone special in my life after the last three years. Then … out of the blue @heatherraeyoung walked into my life,” he captioned a photo of himself and Heather.
Tarek acknowledged that he was previously married to Christina Hall (née Haack), with whom he shares daughter Taylor and son Brayden, from 2009 to 2018, adding, “In life, you can’t predict the future! I couldn’t predict [my] divorce! I couldn’t predict two cancers! I couldn’t predict my back injury! You just never know what tomorrow brings. I just want to let the world know I met someone special that makes me want to be a better man.”
Heather and Tarek’s relationship continued to progress relatively quickly. The couple moved in together in early 2020 and got engaged later that year. They tied the knot in October 2021 and welcomed son Tristan 15 months later.
