At his new "bachelor-dad" pad in Costa Mesa, California, the Flip or Flop star was drawn to the massive backyard pool and bar for both his family and his single life. (He split from wife and HGTV co-star Christina in 2016.) “[The driveway] is gated, so my kids play basketball and soccer. They rollerblade. They have their scooters. That’s why it’s a great house for me as a dad,” El Moussa told PEOPLE. Adding, “On the bachelor side, it’s really cool and hip and modern. It has the jacuzzi. It’s great for entertaining. It’s just beautiful.”
