The truth comes out! HGTV Star Tarek El Moussa shared how his children, Taylor, 11, and Brayden, 6, relate to their parents’ popular show “Flip or Flop,” which is ending in March after 10 seasons.
“They [his children] were a little shocked. They haven’t really understood it, but you know, they know we’re working on a lot of different things, so they’re excited to see what happens next,” Tarek, 40, told us. The TV star explained that her children have actually only seen a few episodes of the show. “I think we’re going to have to have a Flip or Flop binge week in season one to show the kids. I think it’s on schedule,” he said.
The father-of-two shares Taylor and Braden’s children with his ex-wife and former Flip or Flop co-host Kristina Hall (née Haak). The couple were married from 2009 to 2018, but after the divorce they continued to host the HGTV series together.
Tarek and Heather, 34, have been married since October 2021. The couple told us what co-parenting is like with Haak, 38.
“We really focus on our household, and we have certain things that we do in our household, and I know she’s focused on her household, and there are certain things that she does in her household,” said Tarek. “We try to be on the same wavelength as often as possible. as much as possible, but they are different households.
Hall was married to TV presenter Ant Anstead, with whom she has 2-year-old son Hudson, from 2018 to 2020, and now she is married to Joshua Hall. In January 2021, the Flip or Flop graduate clapped back at haters blaming her for moving too quickly after splitting with Anstead, 43.
“Too fast, too soon, too blah blah blah,” she wrote at the time. “That feeling of pure bliss/those deep conversations, love – that’s what it is.” Later, she changed the signature, just making a set of emoticons.
Tarek told us he “felt it was time” to end his HGTV show with Hall now that they’re both remarried. He and Yang are currently undergoing IVF to try and have their first child together.
The couple decided to tell Tarek’s children about the process early on. “They are both rooting for the boy. Braden just wants a brother. Taylor just wants to be the only girl,” Tarek told Us.
