Tarek El Moussa has weighed in on the rumors that his ex-wife Christina Haack is engaged to her new boyfriend, Joshua Hall.
The "Flip or Flop" star, 40, couldn't confirm whether or not Haack was engaged to Hall. However, he suggested that the recent photos of her sporting a diamond ring may be proof that the couple has taken their relationship to the next level.
"If a ring is on a girl’s finger and it looks like an engagement ring and she’s with her man, what does that mean?" El Moussa told Us Weekly while promoting Season 2 of HGTV’s "Flipping 101." "I’m not a mind reader, [but] I’m just saying, they’re good together. I hope the best for them."
Earlier this week, Haack was spotted with what appeared to be an engagement ring on her left hand while in San Diego with Hall. In August, the "Christina on the Coast" star also sparked engagement rumors when she posted and then deleted an Instagram photo of her with a diamond ring on her left hand.
While it is not clear if his ex has plans to tie the knot with her beau, El Moussa is happy that Haack has found love again. "They do seem happy together. Yes, very happy actually. You can tell they’re very close. They always hold hands. They’re always together. I think they’re a good couple," he told the outlet of the couple.
The "Flipping 101" star was married to Haack from 2009 to 2018. She tied the knot with her second husband, Ant Anstead, in 2018, and they split two years later. Their divorce was finalized in June.
El Moussa's comments came two months after he and Haack had a confrontation on the set of their show "Flip or Flop" in July, with him allegedly calling his ex-wife a “washed-up loser.” Their heated exchange allegedly also led to him comparing Haack to his current fiancée, Heather Rae Young.
Looking back at the incident, El Moussa said he regrets his behavior.
"As you can imagine, it can be stressful working with an ex and we did have an incident where some choice words were said on both sides and I’m sure we both wish the whole thing never happened. … The whole thing just sucked for everyone involved," he told E!'s "Daily Pop."
El Moussa added that he would "certainly" take the moment back if he could. He also vowed that it would never happen again and hoped that they could move forward for the sake of their kids. El Moussa and Haack share two children, Taylor, 10, and Brayden, 6. She's also a mom to 2-year-old son Hudson with ex-husband Anstead.
"I never want to go through that ever again, I never want her to go through that again," El Moussa continued. "I know one day our kids are going to be older and I want them to know that we still care about each other and we still support each other, and it’s really important to me."
"Flipping 101" Season 2 premieres on HGTV Thursday at 9 p.m. EDT.
