A sudden scare. Tarek El Moussa and ex-wife Christina Hall (née Haack) to date followers with their son Brayden’s well-being after he was hospitalized for an emergency surgical procedure.
“Scary 12 hours for us parents + step parents,” the Christina on the Coast star, 38, wrote through Instagram on Sunday, May 8, alongside a photograph of her son, 6, resting in a hospital mattress. “After being admitted to the ER, Brayden had to have an emergency appendectomy as well as the removal of Meckel’s diverticulum early this morning. Nothing like seeing your child in excruciating pain 😣.”
The Wellness Remodel writer, who additionally shares 11-year-old daughter Taylor with El Moussa, 40, reassured her followers that Brayden’s process “went well,” including, “He is recovering and in good spirits.”
Hall thanked the “amazing” docs and nurses who received her son via his surgical procedure. “We are all grateful it was caught early,” she concluded. “Blessed to have 3 healthy + happy kids, caring family and friends, and a husband who stands by my side. Happy Mother’s Day everyone. 🤍.”
El Moussa and Hall referred to as it quits in 2016, finalizing their divorce two years later. Along with Taylor and Brayden, the HGTV star can also be the mom of son Hudson, 2, with ex-husband Ant Anstead. Both El Moussa and the California native have since remarried, with the Tarek’s Flip Side star exchanging vows with Heather Rae El Moussa (née Young) in October 2021. Us Weekly confirmed in April that Hall wed realtor Joshua Hall.
The Flipping 101 persona gave his Instagram followers an update of his own on Sunday, describing his household’s “interesting 24 hours” with Brayden. “He was extremely sick last night so Christina took him to the emergency room. It turns out it was the right call because he had to have his appendix removed and also we found out he has something rare called Meckel’s diverticulum,” Tarek wrote. “Both issues were surgically removed and he’s recovering overnight with his mom. He’s such a strong boy and of course, he told me he’s very excited to eat real food tomorrow, he’s obsessed with food just like his daddy❤️.”
Though he referred to as it a “very scary day,” Tarek defined that his blended household “all banned [sic] together” to get via it. “❤️❤️ 😢scary scary day for us my love. I love you so much,” the Selling Sunset star, 34, commented on her husband’s submission.
Heather went on to share a photograph of Tarek lounging along with his son in the hospital, writing, “It’s been a very emotional day but he is doing well and recovering. 🤍❤️.”

Earlier this month, the Flip Your Life writer completely informed Us about his co-parenting dynamic with Christina, who’s currently in a messy battle with Anstead, 43, over custody of son Hudson.
“Honestly, you know, we really focus on our household,” Tarek informed Us. “[Heather and I] have certain things we do at our household, and I know [Christina] focuses on her household and there are certain things she does at her household. … We try to be on the same page as often as possible, but they’re different households.”
