Christina Hall had a milestone in her house recently as her eldest daughter Taylor officially entered teenagedom, and her ex-husband Tarek El Moussa wanted to throw his daughter a party!

Though the Taylor marked her 13th birthday back on September 22, and the Christina on the Coast host commemorated it with a sweet tribute on Instagram, now it was Tarek and his wife, Selling Sunset star Heather Rae Young's turn to celebrate her.

The former Fixer Upper hosts and couple were together from 2009 to 2018, and also share son Brayden, who recently celebrated his eight birthday. Christina also shares son Hudson, three, with ex-husband Ant Anstead. She is now married to Josh Hall.

Over the weekend, Tarek took to Instagram to share a glimpse of his and his wife's birthday party – a surprise! – for Taylor, first sharing an adorable family portrait of himself with Heather plus eight-year-old Brayden and the birthday girl, who is already almost as tall as her dad.

Another sweet snap sees Tarek planting a kiss on his daughter's head, plus plenty of others where they are surrounded by their friends and family.

"Surprised the birthday girl!!!!" the father-of-three wrote in his joint Instagram post with Heather, adding: "Taylor turned 13 a few weeks ago, but we wanted to throw her a proper party so we got everyone together and threw her the cutest surprise party – she was so surprised and happy."
