HGTV star Tarek El Moussa parted ways from Christina Anstead after filing for divorce in January 2017. It's been a long road to happy for Tarek, who is also now happily free from two types of cancer. The HGTV star says he's become a "better man" after falling in love with Selling Sunset's Heather Rae Young.

The happy couple recently celebrated a few milestones. First, they moved into a new home together in Newport Beach. Next, they celebrated their one year anniversary. Attached to their new home is a tennis court, and Tarek recently took a pause from his family's new favorite hobby to reflect on how far he's come.

"I can’t tell you how happy I am with the life I’ve built today," he wrote on Instagram. "I’ve been through some really dark times, and I stop and think about how grateful I am multiple times per day."

The HGTV star then used one word which caught our eye: family.

"You just never know where life is going to lead you," he continued. "If you would have told me a year ago that I’d be in love and have a family again I probably would have thought you were nuts!"

For now, Tarek doesn't know what the future holds. But he does no one thing: He never gave up hope he'd arrive at this moment, and that hope lifted him up.

"No matter what, keep fighting for you, and never give up hope!" he added. "What you want is out there, now go find it!"
