Ringing in *a* new year! Flip or Flop star Tarek El Moussa and his girlfriend, Heather Rae Young, were spotted taking shots on a yacht on Sunday, September 15, to celebrate her 32nd birthday.

“I took a baby shot #sneaky,” Heather’s friend, Erica Saunders, captioned the video. Tarek, who was standing next to her, can be heard saying, “Happy Birthday, I love you!” to which she responded, “I love you!” Aww.

The two first sparked dating rumors back in July when cameras caught them making out on, you guessed it, a yacht. In photos obtained by TMZ, Tarek, 38, and Heather were, ahem, getting cozy in Redondo Beach, California at the Portofino Hotel and Marina. The HGTV star — who hosts a show with his ex-wife Christina Anstead — was all smiles at the time and had his arm wrapped around her.

Turns out, Tarek didn’t get a chance to tell Christina about his new flame — the paparazzi told her instead! During an episode of Strahan, Sara and Keke, the father-of-two admitted, “We were together for a short period of time and we got caught with some paparazzi photos on the back of my boat after we had just started dating, so I’m like, ‘OK, well, the cat’s out of the bag. So, should I tell my ex-wife? Should I not?’ … so I guess the world just let everybody know that we were together.” Oops!

Tarek shared his first photos with his new girlfriend on August 8, making their relationship Insta offish. “It’s official!!!! After more than three years on my own, I’m so PROUD to say that this beautiful, sweet and talented young lady is my girlfriend!” he started his caption. “I’ll be honest and say I never thought I would meet someone special in my life after the last three years. Then, out of the blue, @heatherraeyoung walked into my life. The first time I saw her smile she ‘did that thing to my tummy’ and I knew right away I needed to get to know her … so I asked her out!! She said yes.”

As for Christina? She’s happily married to her hunky British babe Ant Anstead and recently welcomed a healthy baby boy named Hudson. Congrats all around!
