The 33-year-old and Moussa began dating in July 2019, and the father-of-two — who shares daughter Taylor, 10, and son Brayden, 5, with ex-wife and Flip or Flop costar Christina Haack — proposed the following summer.

Young and Moussa have since been very open about their love on social media, often praising one another and sharing loved-up snaps with Moussa's children, as Young proudly calls herself the kiddos' "bonus mom."

Meanwhile, Young has also been teasing her followers with details of their wedding day, sharing earlier this month that she and Moussa are getting married "so soon." However, she didn't reveal their exact wedding date, only disclosing that she'll be wearing a traditional white dress and that the couple won't be having a destination wedding.
