On May 9, 2022, Christina Haack and Heather Rae Young were spotted having what seemed to be an argument, according to Daily Mail. The two were at a kids’ soccer game in Newport Beach, California, sitting on the sidelines. 

Haack was there with her husband, Joshua Hall, whom she secretly married after one year of dating. As for Young, she attended the game with El Moussa, her current husband and Haack’s former husband of seven years. 

Photos appeared to show Young and Haack in a tense conversation. At one point, El Moussa led Young away by the arm. Later, El Moussa and Hall had a heated exchange that was broken up by a soccer coach.

After the photos surfaced the couples released a joint statement. “A personal matter was discussed and has since been resolved,” they said, per E! News. They added that they’re “focused on co-parenting as a team moving forward.”

Additionally, E! News quoted an unnamed source on the reason for the argument. They noted “overall tension between both couples,” saying Haack supposedly feels Young “oversteps her boundaries.” As for Young, they said she “doesn’t feel like she gets enough respect from Christina.”

The following day, Haack and El Moussa’s 6-year-old son, Brayden, underwent emergency surgery. After the ordeal, Haack, El Moussa, and Young shared an update, saying they worked together to get through it.

On May 12, 2022, Haack took to Instagram to share a photo of herself alongside her husband, her 11-year-old daughter Taylor El Moussa, Heather Rae Young, and Tarek El Moussa. 

“Co-parenting 101,” the Christina on the Coast star captioned the post. “Kids come first. Taylor’s open house. Next, on to middle school she goes.”

Haack wrapped up the post with an update on her and El Moussa’s son, Brayden. 

“Brayden is recovering well and we are all grateful,” she wrote alongside a white heart emoji. The HGTV star concluded the post, saying, “It has been a very rough few weeks, ready for some peace 🙏.” 

Young and El Moussa shared almost identical photos from the family outing. The former Flip or Flop star also gave an update on Brayden. Meanwhile, Young ​​echoed Haack’s sentiment about co-parenting in her own Instagram post. “Sometimes to shut down the noise we show the truth,” she wrote. “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 🥰.”

Long before the friction at the soccer game and Brayden’s surgery, Haack opened up about the dynamic between her, Young, and El Moussa. In April 2020, the now-38-year-old said she and the Selling Sunset star bonded over being “super healthy” eaters, even swapping recipes. 

“We’ll, like, text each other random recipes right now during isolation,” Haack told Us Weekly. “She’ll, like, send me whatever her, like, favorite go-to granola bar is, and I’ll text her back, like, whatever mine is.”

As far as how things are between her, her ex-husband, and his now-wife (El Moussa and Young tied the knot in October 2021), she described it as “nice,” saying, “we all get along.”

Today, amid Brayden’s health scare and the argument at the soccer game, Haack is also in a custody battle with ex Ant Anstead over her youngest son, Hudson.
