Heather Rae Young and Tarek El Moussa make out in front of their children
Tarek was the one who share their family Christmas photo just a few days before the holiday. He posed alongside his wife Heather and his two children, Taylor and Brayden, 6, who he shares with ex-wife and Flip or Flop co-star, Christina Haak.
The family wore matching black and white checkered onesies that featured red piping on their pants, sleeves, and necklines. The newlyweds got a mouthful of each other as their children cringed in horror. Taylor covered her eyes, while Brayden let out a scream.
“To be fair, in our heads there was a mistletoe!! 😂 okay…the Photgrapher told us to kiss and we were laughing 🤷♂️” Tarek El Moussa captioned the photo. “3 day countdown… anyone else love the holidays!?”
Fans were amused. They took to the comment section to share their thoughts. They feel that Heather and Tarek should’ve gotten a room instead. Most of them argued that the kiss itself was inappropriate.

- “Yeah a peck would have been more appropriate in front of the kids.”
- “A therapist is going to make some money off this moment someday. Not cute.”
- “I wouldn’t want to see my dad kiss like that either. Happy Holidays.”
However, not all the comments were negative. Some fans loved seeing the couple being affectionate in front of the kids. To them, it represents what a healthy and normal relationship should be.
“Loveeee this!!! I’m in an ex-relationship where my kids have NEVER seen me affectionate in this way..(with a significant other) so I envy this,” one fan wrote.
