On Thursday, the proud dad and HGTV star, 40, posted a sweet tribute to his oldest child, daughter Taylor, 11, on Instagram. After finding out that wife Heather Rae El Moussa, 34, is expecting a baby boy, he celebrated his daughter for being "the only girl in the EL Moussa family."
"The best big sister her soon-to-be brother could ask for ❤️ Tay remains the only girl in the EL Moussa family which is crazy to think she'll be the older sibling to three younger brothers!" the Flip or Flop alum writes. Tarek and ex Christina Hall share Taylor and son Brayden, 6. Taylor is also a big brother to Hall's son, Hudson London, 2, with ex Ant Anstead.
"She may have some interesting times ahead of her with three younger brothers 😅🤣 but this girl can handle it 😎," he continues in his caption. "Tay will always be my first born and daddy's little girl to me ❤️and we both can't wait for another boy El Moussa in the family!"

One minute you go from wondering when 'the one' with come into your life to meeting the love of your life, helping raise 2 incredible kids, getting married, envisioning having a baby, to being🤰," she continued.
