In April, the Selling Sunset star said she and El Moussa “focus on their household.” “We keep it separate, and we really focus on our house and raising the kids how we want to at our house and healthy habits here,” Young told In Touch. “And so, we just really focus on our household.”

The Netflix star also revealed that she handles most of the communication with El Moussa’s ex regarding the two kids.

“But obviously, we communicate for the children. Her and I mainly do,” Young explained. “And you know, obviously, we’re raising kids, and they’re half the time over there, half the time with us. So, we do communicate for the children.”

The family comes together in a crisis

Tarek El Moussa and Christina Haack have had their share of arguments over the years, and there was a recent incident at a children’s soccer game where both couples got in a fight. But ultimately, the family always comes together, and they seem to get closer whenever there is a crisis. 

In April 2020, Haack told People that the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic helped unite the family. “Tarek and I split four years ago. That’s a long time,” the Christina on the Coast star explained. “When there are tough times like these, all of a sudden we’re totally a unified front and talk and email multiple times a day.”

The day after the soccer game fight, Haack and El Moussa’s son Brayden had emergency surgery. Following the health scare, Haack, El Moussa, and Young each posted a photo on social media showing the two couples smiling together.

“Co-parenting 101. Kids come first. Taylor’s open house. Next, on to middle school she goes,” Haack captioned her May 12 Instagram post. “Brayden is recovering well and we are all grateful 🤍. It has been a very rough few weeks, ready for some peace 🙏.”

“Sometimes to shut down the noise we show the truth,” Young captioned the same photo on her Instagram. “Co- parenting and doing what’s right ❤️ it’s been a rough week for all of us. Tay’s open house tonight, she’s just the cutest 🥰”
