‘I felt like I was always second, and no one ever made me feel that way, but I think when your significant other had such a long relationship with the previous spouse and a lot of love, and it was very public divorce,’ Heather said of her first relationship with Hall.  

‘You’re coming into it, and you fall in love with each other, but you always kind of think of the ex,’ Heather – who’s currently expecting her first child with Tarek – added.

‘I kinda had to navigate my own feelings along with falling in love with a man, raising children, getting a whole new family and also filming my own TV shows. It wasn’t always perfect,’ the reality TV star continued. 

‘We definitely had some ups and downs, and they had ups and downs, and I think she realized how much I love the kids and they are number one to me over anything. So any drama aside, the kids are the most important thing to all of us.’ 

In May of this year, El Moussa was pictured pulling his wife away by her arm from an argument with Christina.

The sideline spat didn’t end there either, later Tarek and Christina’s new husband, Josh Hall, were in each others faces and had to be separated by the soccer coach. 

Christina was married to Tarek from 2009 until 2018. Following their split, she married the smoldering British TV presenter Ant Anstead.
