Tarek El Moussa and his wife, Christina, are focused on their daughter, 6-year-old Taylor Reese, and 1-year-old son Brayden James as they prepare for a possible divorce.
Several months after partying ways, the Flip or Flop couple confirmed their separation with fans on December 12, and in the days since, they have made it clear that their children are their top priority on social media.
In Tarek El Moussa’s latest post to fans, which was shared on Instagram on December 20, Taylor Reese was seen posing with a couple of little boys as she showed off her karate uniform.
“My little ninja getting down at jiujitso!!! OMG she’s getting so big!! This little angel stole my heart… I’m soooooo proud of everything she does!” Tarek El Moussa wrote in the caption of the photo.
Tarek El Moussa and Christina El Moussa were married for 7 years before deciding to call it quits.
Last week, Tarek El Moussa shared another photo of himself and Taylor Reese in which they were seen posing together in front of a couple of yachts at a marina in Southern California, where the family resides.
In the caption, Tarek El Moussa wrote, “Me and the love of my life crushing it!!! It’s been a crazy few days but we love our kids soooo much!! My heart and soul.”
As Tarek El Moussa continues to stay active on social media, despite the drama surrounding his split, his wife has stayed active as well. Days ago, she posted a video of her and Tarek’s son, Brayden James, playing peek-a-boo with a napkin as they enjoyed a meal.
“Even on my roughest days he always brings a smile to my face. [Brayden James] you make our lives complete,” Christina captioned the video, also adding Tarek El Moussa’s Instagram username.
Two days before sharing the video of her son, Christina El Moussa posted a picture of herself and her daughter, Taylor Reese, enjoying a Christmas brunch at her kindergarten classroom.
Tarek El Moussa and his wife have been starring on their HGTV house-flipping series Flip or Flop since 2013 and are reportedly planning to continue their professional work as they evaluate the future of their marriage.
News of Tarek El Moussa’s split from Christina was first confirmed last Monday by TMZ, who revealed the couple had allegedly been involved in an incident at their home back in May of this year.
According to the report, 11 deputies and a helicopter responded to a call about a “possibly” suicidal male with a firearm after Tarek el Moussa allegedly grabbed a gun from his safe and fled his home. Meanwhile, Christina was said to be shaking and in tears.
“Within minutes, the helicopter spotted [Tarek El Moussa] on a trail and deputies told him to drop his weapon. Tarek complied and told deputies he had no intention of hurting himself,” the outlet revealed to readers, adding that television star said he wanted to “blow off some steam.”
Although Tarek El Moussa and his wife have since claimed the incident was a “misunderstanding,” their relationship ended at that point and according to a source, the couple is simply not compatible.
“In a lot of ways they just seemed wildly incompatible,” a source told People Magazine last week. “She has champagne tastes, and he’s a beer-from-a-can kind of guy.”
“That was okay for a while when all they could afford was canned beer — they were on the same page, working together to make it and to do the best with what they had. But the stardom from the show, and the money from the show, meant that she started to feel like she could finally have some of the finer things in life,” the source continued.
