While chatting with People magazine on Monday, El Moussa was asked if he and Young had heard about his ex-wife's plans to walk down the aisle a third time.

"We ​​just saw, but congratulations!" said the "Flipping 101" star, 40.

Young, 34, also responded to Haack's life update with enthusiasm. "Wow, awesome!" said the "Selling Sunset" star. "We just want nothing but happiness for (Christina and Josh) and nothing but happiness for the kids."

Added Young, "We’re looking forward to the next chapter of everyone’s lives." 

El Moussa and Haack, 38, married in 2009 and finalized their divorce in 2018. The "Flip or Flop" co-stars share a daughter, Taylor, 10, and son, Brayden, 6.

Haack also shares a son, Hudson, 2, with her second ex-husband, British TV personality Ant Anstead. Haack announced her split from the "Celebrity IOU: Joyride" host, 42, last September after less than two years of marriage.

On Monday, Haack announced her plans to tie the knot with Hall in an Instagram post. The “Christina on the Coast” star shared a trio of photos of her and Hall cozying up to one another on the beach. The final photo found her showing off her diamond engagement ring.

She captioned the post with emoji of a heart, a lock, a key and a diamond ring.

The mom of three went public with her relationship with the Austin-based realtor in July.

"When we met this past spring, the synchronicities hit us so hard and fast they were impossible to ignore. I felt immediately crazy protective over him and wanted to keep him for myself and get to know each other before the tornado (media attention) hit," she wrote next to an Instagram photo of the pair embracing on a beach.

She went on to say that she and Hall had enjoyed "a few solid months of just us getting to know each other" and that she had "loved every second of it."

Haack also said she intended to ignore "all the nonsense online" from critics who blasted her for finding love again.

"I may be a bit crazy and I’m definitely not perfect but I will never live my life based on other people’s judgments or opinions," she wrote. "We pride ourselves on never judging others and always wanting others to be happy and we wish others would have the same respect.

"Josh doesn’t have social media, but I want to thank him for whisking me away on a romantic tropical vacation he planned entirely on his own," she continued.

She added, "So yes ‘another relationship’ and guess what. I’m 38 — I’ll do what I want."

We Finally Know What Christina Haack’s $200K Engagement Ring Looks Like After She Deleted Her 1st Photos of It

Yahoo Lifestyle 21 September, 2021 - 03:15pm

The Flip or Flop star, 38, confirmed the news of her engagement to realtor Joshua Hall on Monday, September 20 with a post on Instagram. The photos, which you can see below, featured Christina and Joshua out to dinner, with the final photo in the set showing off her 5-carat diamond ring—which is reportedly valued at a whopping $200,000. The HGTV host also tagged the ring’s creator, Benny Hayoun, in the flick. Hayoun opened up about the process of making Christina’s ring to Page Six, telling the site that her fiancé knew exactly the kind of ring he wanted for his future bride.

“He had in his brain all of what he wanted to do,” Hayoun told the publication in a report published on Tuesday, September 21. “It took me four or five days to make it happen because he insisted on making it by hand, meaning there’s no wax, no computer programming involved.” The jeweler instead chose to deliver a more raw design. “With the computer, everything is made to perfection,” he explained, yet Joshua wanted something less “flashy” and more “real.”

According to Page Six, the jeweler has been friends with Christina for 20 years, meaning he had a special perspective on her “off the beat” style. Thankfully, Joshua’s fiancée couldn’t be happier with his design. “She absolutely loved it, and thank God she loved it,” he said. “We men think we know exactly what women want, especially with the ring. I was pleasantly surprised, she loved it.”

Prior to her engagement with Joshua, Christina was married to British TV show host and motor specialist Ant Anstead. The former couple, who were married from 2018 to 2020, share a son named Hudson London, who was born in 2019. Christina was also married to her Flip or Flop co-star Tarek El Moussa from 2009 to 2018. The stars share two kids: a daughter, Taylor, who was born in 2010, and a son, Brayden, who was born in 2015.

Christina’s future nuptials with Joshua would mark her third marriage thus far. While it’s unclear how soon the pair are planning to tie the knot, it’s clear that they’re enjoying every moment together. Just one day before the HGTV personality confirmed the news of her engagement, she took to Instagram to celebrate Joshua on his birthday. “You give me that teenage kinda love vibe and manly protection,” she wrote at the time. “It’s a combo for a lifetime of happiness + success. Thank you for reminding me what life and love are like when you put down the technology. I love you Josh.” Congrats to the happy couple!

What Prince Charles must overcome if he is to be accepted as king

E! News 21 September, 2021 - 03:09am

More people in Britain currently think the Prince of Wales would make a bad king than good since December 2020, according to YouGov.

And it comes after three resignations at his charity, the Prince's Foundation, following allegations a Saudi billionaire was offered help securing a knighthood and U.K. citizenship in exchange for donations.

As recently as June 2020, 38 percent of people felt the next-in-line to the throne would make a good head of state compared to 30 percent who did not.

However, in November Season Four of Netflix series The Crown hit screens with its depiction by Emma Corrin of Princess Diana's bulimia while Prince Charles (Josh O'Connor) conducted an affair behind her back.

Just a month later, U.K. pollster YouGov recorded that 32 percent thought he would make a good king compared to 33 percent who felt he would not.

The show on Sunday cleaned up at the Emmy's with 11 wins, including the best actor in a drama award for O'Connor, who at one point depicts Charles in a fit of rage.

And there is more to come for Prince Charles as Netflix is to release two more seasons of The Crown, including one next year which will show some of the messiest periods of the breakdown in their relationship.

The Duke of Sussex told Oprah Winfrey his father stopped taking his calls while he was trying to negotiate his way out of the royal family and then cut him off financially last summer.

By the end of May, YouGov recorded a further drop, with 31 percent thinking Charles would make a good king compared to 35 percent who felt he would not.

This November, Kristen Stewart will play Princess Diana in Spencer, the Pablo Larraín biopic with a fictionalized portrayal of her deciding she no longer wants to be a future queen.

Prince Charles polled well in Britain up until the messy break up with Diana, according to historic data from Ipsos Mori.

Asked whether he would make a good king, 82 percent said he would in 1991 compared to 41 percent in 1996, the year of their divorce.

Spencer is set over Christmas in 1991—months before a biography Diana had secretly cooperated with revealed his affair with Camilla for the first time.

It focuses, in essence, on the epicenter of the collapse in Charles' popularity.

Not only that, more people would like the Duke of Cambridge to be the next Monarch.

Prince Charles crept above Prince William in responses to that particular question in January 2020, the month Harry and Meghan quit royal duties and three months after Harry publicly acknowledged a rift with William in an ITV documentary.

Back then, 39 percent wanted Charles to be king compared to 36 percent who wanted William to be king, according to a YouGov tracker poll.

However, by December The Crown effect had seemingly taken its toll again, with 40 percent wanting William and 32 percent wanting Charles.

To add insult to injury, Princess Diana once told former Daily Telegraph editor Sir Max Hastings she wanted William to be king ahead of his father, meaning the public appear to be inflicting Diana's revenge.

Support for the royals remains strong across the U.K. public as a whole but YouGov polling suggests a growing number of 18 to 24-year-olds in Britain would rather have an elected head of state.

Survey data from May put this figure at 41 percent compared to 31 percent who wanted to continue with the Monarchy.

Similar surveys in 2019 showed 46 percent of 18 to 24-year-olds in favor of the monarchy, with 26 percent wanted an elected state head.

The decline came two months after the Oprah Winfrey interview and it may be too early to tell whether this is a persistent trend that young people will maintain as they get older.

However, if Britain's youth become consistently opposed to continuing with the Monarchy then Prince Charles, currently aged 72, may find himself the man tasked with reversing that trend.

In December 2019, a palace insider told Newsweek that Prince Charles played a key role in managing tensions with his second son and also his brother, Prince Andrew, accused of raping a 17-year-old Jeffrey Epstein victim.

Our source said of Queen Elizabeth II: "There is a sense that she's lost control within the family, between Andrew's disastrous interview and the ongoing drama with Harry and Meghan.

"The queen has been deeply disappointed by their behavior. As future king, it's been up to Charles to put a stop to the chaos."

However, between Harry, Andrew and discontent among young people, the path ahead for the prince is not straight forward and, not for the first time, his judgment is currently being called into question.

Prince Charles and the head of the Prince's Foundation, Michael Fawcett, were reported to the police after allegations the latter offered to help a Saudi donor get a knighthood.

The charity is carrying out its own investigation and Scotland's charity regulator launched a parallel inquiry.

So far Fawcett has stepped back temporarily and two others, including the chairman Douglas Connell, have also quit.

The centerpiece of the allegations is a letter Fawcett sent to an aide to Saudi tycoon Marei Mubarak Mahfouz bin Mahfouz, who The Sunday Times reported had previously donated £1.5 million to the charity.

Published in The Mail on Sunday, the August 2017, letter read: "In light of the ongoing and most recent generosity of His Excellency, Sheikh Marei Mubarak Mahfouz bin Mahfouz I am happy to confirm to you, in confidence, that we are willing and happy to support and contribute to the application for Citizenship.

"I can further confirm that we are willing to make [an] application to increase His Excellency's honor from Honorary CBE to that of KBE in accordance with Her Majesty's Honors Committee.

"Both of these applications will be made in response to the most recent and anticipated support of the Trust and in connection with his ongoing commitment generally within the United Kingdom. I hope this confirmation is sufficient in allowing us to go forward."

A Clarence House statement after the scandal broke read: "The Prince of Wales has no knowledge of the alleged offer of honors or British citizenship on the basis of donation to his charities and fully supports the investigation now underway by The Prince's Foundation."
