It’s a small world – and getting smaller.
Christina Haack’s new boyfriend, Joshua Hall, has a surprising bond with her first husband Tarek El Moussa.
As it turns out, Tarek’s fiancé, Heather Rae Young, once hosted a podcast with Hall’s sister, Jessica.
According to Us Weekly, Young worked with Jessica from March 2020 until earlier this year when former “Bachelorette” DeAnna Pappas took over as host of the “Flashbacks” podcast.
And while Haack confirmed just this week that she had been with Joshua “for the past few months,” El Moussa, 39, told Entertainment tonight Thursday that he has already met him a few times.
Young, 33, told the outlet that Hall “looks like” a good guy, to which El Moussa adds, “I don’t really know him, but I certainly hope so.”
“Flip or Flop” co-stars Haack and El Moussa – who share children Taylor, 10, and Brayden, 5 – were married from 2009-2018. After their split, El Moussa continued with Young playing “Selling Sunset”, while Haack, 38, married “Wheeler Dealers” star Ant Anstead. Haack and Anstead, who ended their divorce in June after less than three years of marriage, share a 1-year-old son named Hudson.
In December 2020, a few months after announcing their separation, Anstead said the split “hit [him] hard.”
“The effect on me, my sleep, my diet, my stress showed it,” he said, although he seems to be doing better – as Page Six recently reported, he has been with Oscar winner Renée Zellweger.
Meanwhile, Haack left for Tulum with Joshua this week to celebrate her birthday. She revealed that she met the real estate agent after smoking the hallucinogenic poison from a kind of toad.
“When we met that spring, the synchronicities hit us so hard and fast that they were impossible to ignore,” she wrote. “I immediately felt crazy protective of him and wanted to keep him to myself and get to know each other before the tornado (media attention) hit.
