Blended family goals! For Christina Anstead’s and Tarek El Moussa’s daughter Taylor’s birthday celebration on Saturday, September 21, the parents got together with their respective partners proving they all share such a cool bond.

Tarek attended the party with his girlfriend, Heather Rae Young. Though Ant Anstead wasn’t in any photographs, it’s safe to assume he was there too, especially considering the party was held at his and his wife’s house. As usual, Tarek, 38, took to Instagram to share some kind words about his daughter. “We had the best time at Taylor’s 9th birthday party at her moms today!” he captioned a photo posing alongside Taylor and Heather, 32.

“While the kids were swimming, I was in the corner shoving cheeseburgers down my mouth …. Even after I promised myself I wouldn’t lol … #whatdiet,” he continued. “Seriously, @heatherraeyoung and I had a great time! It was the first time we were all together and it was great. Tay and all her friends got to make slime, play games in the back and swim! She had the best day and she SCORED at her soccer game again!” Tarek concluded the sweet post by revealing that her actual birthday is on September 22, which led him and Christina to both give their daughter birthday shout-outs on IG.

In honor of her actual birthday, the father of two shared a photo with his ex-wife, their son, Brayden, and Taylor. “I’ll tell you what, there is NO WAY I would have survived the last few years if it wasn’t for my little girl,” Tarek wrote. “We are so close and she’s my best friend in the world! Before I was a parent I never realized how much I could love a child.” Aw!

On the other hand, Christina, 36, kept her message short, cute and simple. “Happy 9th birthday #TaylorReese! Slime theme/pool party was a success. Outgoing, sassy, smart and adventurous … Love being her mama!!” she captioned a series of photos of her mini-me.

We’re so happy Taylor was surrounded by so many people who love her. After all, it doesn’t come as a surprise that Tarek and Christina got together with their significant others to make it happen, considering both parents are all about making their kids happy. What’s Tarek’s parenting motto? “The kids are first,” he exclusively told Life & Style during the HGTV’s A Very Brady Renovation premiere on September 5. We couldn’t agree more!
