In a May 12 Instagram post, Haack shared a photo from a school open house for her 11-year-old daughter, Taylor El Moussa. There with her was her husband, Hall, whom she secretly married after a year of dating. El Moussa, Haack’s ex-husband and Taylor’s dad, was also there alongside Young, whom he married in October 2021

The two couples posed together with Taylor at the center, all smiling for the camera. “Co-parenting 101,” Haack wrote in the caption. “Kids come first. Taylor’s open house. Next, on to middle school she goes.”

Haack’s post didn’t end there. She also provided an update on how she and El Moussa’s son, Brayden, has been doing since having emergency surgery on Mother’s Day to remove his appendix and Meckel’s diverticulum.

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

“Proud of you ALL❤️👏 KEEP POSTING THESE. Start normalizing healthy [sic] co-parenting habits,” one person wrote. “Coparenting is hard. Getting along with your ex’s spouse is hard. People that have never had to deal with it don’t understand & are quick to throw stones. I applaud you. ❤️” 

“It’s lovely to see successful co-parenting,” another said, adding “everybody wins, especially the kiddos,” alongside a hand-clapping emoji. “Once you master the co-parenting, everything else is gravy. Kids first, always. You guys are doing a great job,” added another.
