When a very public celebrity divorce happens through the media’s eyes, it no doubt adds extra stress and tension to an already painful situation.
Nobody wants to see HGTV families split apart, but when they do, it’s great to see them pick up the pieces and find their new beginnings.
Tarek and Christina El Moussa were the power couple behind HGTV‘s “Flip or Flop,” which began in 2013. Fans loved watching the married couple flip houses and turn them into strong exteriors with dreamy interiors.
In 2016, the real estate couple quietly parted ways, and in 2017, officially divorced. They have two children together, a girl and a boy.
After living in a remodeled home since 2017, Tarek El Moussa proudly announced a big step in finding his new path. He purchased a home in Costa Mesa, California, and boy, is it a looker.
“I BOUGHT A HOUSE!!!!!!!” the new homeowner proudly announced on social media. “I’m am so excited for my “new beginnings” — sometimes things are meant to be.”
El Moussa explained he wasn’t on the hunt for a home, but when he drove by this gorgeous house, it spoke to him.
That very day, he said, he was writing and negotiating deals to get those keys in his hand.
“The lesson — if you want something go get it, go after it and never quit!” El Moussa encouraged. “This relates to life in general. “If there is something you want take action!!!”
El Moussa is most excited about having a permanent space for his children, a place the three of them can call home. “Babies finally get a home with daddy!!!” he exclaimed.
El Moussa and ex-wife Christina have pledged to behave amicably when it comes to co-parenting their children. In a 2017 interview, Christina said she and Tarek are able to set their differences aside for the sake of their children.
“Kids sense that [animosity], so Tarek and I will never say anything negative about each other to the kids, in front of the kids,” Christina said. “I think that’s so important.”
“It’s so important to still communicate and show [our] kids that we’re still friends, that we’ll always be a family,” she continued. “Whether that’s sports events together, birthday parties. It just makes our kids feel more comfortable.”
