Christina Haack has opened up about the ‘scary’ few hours her family suffered after her son Brayden was admitted to hospital.
The Flip or Flop star shares the six-year-old with ex-husband Tarek El Moussa – who is currently married to Selling Sunset’s Heather Rae Young.
Taking to Instagram, the 38-year-old shared a photo of the youngster in his hospital bed as she detailed his emergency surgery for concerned fans.
‘Scary 12 hours for us parents + step parents,’ she wrote beside the snap. ‘After being admitted to the ER, Brayden had to have an emergency appendectomy as well as removal of Meckel’s diverticulum early this morning.
‘Nothing like seeing your child in excruciating pain… Luckily the surgery went well and he is recovering and in good spirits. The entire staff at Mission Hospital was amazing and we are all grateful it was caught early.
‘Blessed to have 3 healthy + happy kids, caring family and friends and a husband who stands by my side. Happy Mother’s Day everyone.’
Fans rushed to offer Christina and the family their support, sharing sweet messages in the comments section below.
‘Oh my gosh I’m so sorry this happened but so relieved he is okay!!! Sending you all love and prayers this morning,’ a follower said.
‘So thankful Bray is in the best of hands and has his mommy right next to him,’ another agreed.
‘While not the most ideal way to spend Mother’s Day, this is exactly what being the amazing mother you are is all about.’
‘Omg! I’m so so sorry to hear! Glad he’s doing ok now. Sending all the love your way! Happy Mother’s Day mama,’ an Instagram user added.
Sharing a similar photo on his own Instagram page, Tarek added: ‘It’s been an interesting 24 hours. Last night we were at the CHOC Gala and this morning we were at CHOC hospital waiting for Brayden to get out of surgery.
‘He was extremely sick last night so Christina took him to the emergency room. It turns out it was the right call because he had to have his appendix removed and also we found out he has something rare called Meckel’s diverticulum.

‘Both issues were surgically removed and he’s recovering overnight with his mom. He’s such a strong boy and of course he told me he’s very excited to eat real food tomorrow, he’s obsessed with food just like his daddy.
‘Very scary day, but we all banned together as a family to get through it. Thank you to the amazing doctors and nurses who took such incredible care of our boy.’
Christina and Tarek first met in 2005 and started dating the following year – tying the knot in 2009.
They welcomed their first child, daughter Taylor, in 2010 and added to their brood once more with Brayden five years later.
