Ups and downs: Heather Rae Young, 35 (L), opened up about her shared parenting struggles with Christina Hall, 39, in a new interview, saying: “We definitely had some ups and downs.”
The father of two shares daughter Taylor, 12, and son Brayden, 7, with Hall.
“I felt like I always came second and nobody 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 a very public divorce,” said Heather said about her first relationship with Hall.

“I had to sort of deal with my own feelings, fall in love with a man, raise kids, start a whole new family, and also film my own TV shows. It wasn’t always perfect,” the reality TV star continued.
“We’ve definitely had some ups and downs, and she’s had ups and downs, and I think she realized how much I love the kids and they’re number one for me, above everything. Aside from any drama, the children are the most important thing to all of us.
In May this year, El Moussa was pictured holding his wife’s arm away from an argument with Christina.
