“I feel like I’m just more calm,” the Wellness Remodel author said at the time. “I don’t know if it’s just me getting older, but things that used to bother me, or that I used to take personally, or maybe since going through a public divorce. I just like, really, it takes a lot to bother me nowadays. I don’t really sweat the small stuff at all and I just feel like I’m more patient. It’s probably just a combination of age and being through a bunch of stuff in my life.”

El Moussa, for his part, is engaged to Selling Sunset‘s Heather Rae Young, who Christina has become closer with amid the pandemic.
