Christina Anstead and Tarek El Moussa's daughter Taylor may only be 10 years old, but she's already got her heart set on following in her parents' footsteps. On an episode of Tarek's Flip Side, now streaming on discovery+, Tarek El Moussa showed Taylor around one of the homes he and Anstead would be flipping on a future episode of Flip or Flop. The fourth-grader weighed in on some design decisions, revealed which parent's style she liked more, and even got to put her budding design skills to use during an online consultation.
As El Moussa and Taylor walked through the completely-gutted home, he showed her a backsplash sample that he and Antstead planned to install in the kitchen. "That matching is pretty good," she quipped, comparing the tile pattern to the color of the cabinetry. The episode then cut to an aside where Taylor discussed her parents' styles.
"I think my mom has a better sense of design, she said to the cameras, while nervously grinning at her dad. "Wait, who paid you to say that?" he playfully asked. "I really like her designs," Taylor affirmed, to which El Moussa said, "Oh, just because I let her design more." In a low voice, Taylor meekly answered "no."
While it's confirmed that Taylor is a major fan of her mama's designs (psst... check out Anstead's furniture line here!), she still has a lot of love for dad and their daddy-daughter dinner dates at "the fancy restaurant" as she calls it. She also tells her father that she enjoys watching Flip or Flop. "I like how you and mom goof around," she says, revealing that she's inspired by what her parents do. "When I grow up, I wanna work with my mom and dad and do what they do," she shared. She even teased the idea of stealing her dad's investment company, TEM Investments, as they both share the same initials.
At the end of the episode, El Moussa wanted to put Taylor's design skills to the test. He surprised her with a special consultation with Hello Jo + Co, allowing her to custom design her new bed, which would be going in El Moussa's new home that he's currently renovating with fiancèe Heather Rae Young. Taylor opted for a castle-like bed with her name written on it— she definitely handled the design session like a pro!
