However all seemed to be better on Monday, as Hall posted a picture of Brayden, six, smiling while working on a coloring book at the hospital.
‘Stressful 24 hours but a good reminder of how important team work/co-parenting is. We are all under pressure but when it really matters we were all there for Brayden doing our part,’ she wrote on the photo.
‘Sometimes a scary situation can be a good wake up call. In the end all the other stuff is just “noise”, what matters is the kids,’ she added, tagging her husband as well as Tarek and Heather.

The sideline spat didn’t end there either, later Tarek and Christina’s new husband, Josh Hall, were in each others faces and had to be separated by the soccer coach.
The Christina on the Coast star was seated on folding chairs beneath a sun awning, watching her older children take to the soccer field.

Things appeared to take an ugly turn during the game when Young, dressed in black athleisure, approached Christina to talk.
Hall, who was holding a friend’s baby on her lap, sat as Heather said her piece. The pair exchanged fiery words that got so tense Tarek walked over and pulled his wife away from the group by her arm.
For most of the day, the respective newlyweds kept their distance to avoid more dispute that didn’t last.

Christina’s third husband was seen speaking nearly nose-to-nose with Tarek near the soccer goals. The youth soccer coach ended up intervening before things got worse and was spotted separating the father and step father.
Hall shares Brayden as well as daughter Taylor, 11, with El Moussa, who she was married to from 2009 to 2018.
She shares her youngest son Hudson, two, with her second ex-husband Ant Anstead, 43, who she is currently embroiled in a bitter custody battle with.
The star had a less than ideal Mother’s Day celebration, as she took to Instagram on Sunday to share that Brayden was in the ER.
Scary ordeal: Hall shared that Brayden had been admitted to the ER for an emergency appendectomy and removal of Meckel’s diverticulum on Sunday
She posted a photo of him sleeping in a hospital bed, explaining that he had been admitted for an emergency surgery.
‘Scary 12 hours for us parents + step parents. After being admitted to the ER, Brayden had to have an emergency appendectomy as well as removal of Meckel’s diverticulum early this morning,’ she wrote in the caption.
Meckel’s diverticulum is a small pouch located in the wall of the intestine, which is a leftover of the umbilical cord as per Cleveland Clinic.

Thankfully, the reality star went on to say that the surgery was a success and that her baby boy was recovering just fine.
‘Nothing like seeing your child in excruciating pain.. luckily the surgery went well and he is recovering and in good spirits.’
She wrapped up her caption by thanking staff at the hospital where Brayden was treated, as well as her current husband, realtor Joshua Hall, whom she married this year, as per PEOPLE.
‘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.’

In a recent court filing, Anstead – who’s currently dating actress Renée Zellweger, 53 – blasted Hall as an unfit mother who only spent a few days a month with their son, using him for social media clout and risking his medical safety, TMZ reported.
In his court filing he claims Christina put their toddler at risk, sending him home with ‘an awful sunburn that was so bad it left him crying in pain.’
In another explosive part, Ant says that Christina failed to inform him that her family had gotten COVID and returned Hudson to his care without proper precautions. The move ended up shutting down production on Zellweger’s latest film.

Ant was denied his bid for full custody presently but will still have the chance to make a case for temporary custody during a hearing in June.
Hall responded to the charges in a statement where she called herself a ‘good mother’ and blasted her ex for taking their custody issues to the court, rather than having it ‘handled privately.’
‘I have had my share of ups and downs but I am a good mom and I love my children with all my heart and I will always protect them,’ she concluded.
Hall and the English television presenter were married in 2018 at their Newport Beach, California home. Christina filed for divorce in November 2020, and it was finalized in June of 2021.
