While it’s definitely been a harrowing few days for ‘Flip Or Flop’ star Tarek El Moussa & his wife Christina, there’s one thing Tarek can always count on to lift his spirits — his kids! And posting an adorable pic with his 6-year-old daughter Taylor, the reality star proved just that — in the cutest way possible! Check out his sweet message to the ‘love of his life’ here.
Despite the news of Flip Or Flop stars Tarek El Moussa, 34, and Christina El Moussa, 33, separating, Tarek has been able to keep his head held high for the most part — all thanks to his precious children! Tarek and Christina share two youngsters: Taylor, 6, and Brayden, 15 months, and they’re the only thing seemingly keeping the former couple sane right now.
In fact, Tarek shared a super touching pic of himself holding Taylor close on Dec. 14, and his loving message to her is everything! “Me and the #love of my life #crushing it!!!” the HGTV star captioned the snapshot. “It’s been a #crazy few days but we #love our kids soooo #much!! My #heart and #soul.” Aw!
And while Brayden was missing from the photo, Tarek’s shoutout to his kids was unmistakably meant for both of his and Christina’s little ones. We love how despite the hostility that may be present in their marriage, they’re still trying to focus on what’s most important — they’re beautiful children! And fans agree.

“Stay Strong & Put those babies 1’st!!! What is meant to be will work itself out!!” one fan’s encouraging words read. Another commented, “This too shall pass. You have the right focus on your beautiful children. All will be well!” For those who need a refresher, the popular TV couple — who have been married for seven years — announced their split earlier this week, and left many fans in complete shock.
“We decided to separate while we reevaluated the next steps in our married life,” Tarek and Christina revealed to People mag in a statement. “We believed this was in the best interests of the children and the best way to determine a path forward.” Apparently part of the reason for their split involved an altercation that involved a gun at their home back in May.
“Like many couples, we have had challenges in our marriage,” the statement continued. “We had an unfortunate misunderstanding about six months ago and the police were called to our house in an abundance of caution. There was no violence and no charges were filed.” But the statement also made sure to add that their kids truly are their number one priority.
“During the process, we are committed to our kids and being the best parents we can be. We will continue to work through this process civilly and cooperatively, and plan to continue our professional life together,” the former couple concluded. We wish the best for the El Moussa family.
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — what do you think about Tarek and Christina’s explosive split? Will they ever get back together for the kids?
