Their parents may no longer be together, but former stepsisters Taylor El Moussa and Amelie Anstead still keep in touch from opposite sides of the world.

On Monday, Ant Anstead took to his Instagram Story to share a photo that he said “makes my heart GLOW:” a screenshot of his former stepdaughter, Taylor, 10 (whom his ex-wife Christina Anstead shares with her first husband, Tarek El Moussa) on FaceTime with his daughter Amelie, 17, whom he shares with his first wife, Louise Herbert. 

“Ammo and Tay FaceTime,” the Wheelers Dealers host, 41, wrote on the photo, which shows both girls smiling, tagging Amelie, Christina, Tarek and Ant's son with Herbert, Archie, 14.

Tarek even reposted the photo to his own Instagram Story.

Christina, 37, also shares son Brayden, 5, with Tarek, and Christina and Ant have 1-year-old Hudson London together.

Ant and Christina married at their home in Newport Beach, California, in December 2018 and welcomed Hudson in September 2019. The Christina on the Coast star announced in September that she and Ant had split after less than two years of marriage, and PEOPLE reported that she officially filed for divorce earlier this month.

Last week, PEOPLE confirmed that Christina had filed for joint physical and legal custody of Hudson and that neither star is requesting spousal support. 

Christina recently took to Instagram to clap back against claims that she is an absent parent — particularly compared to Ant and Tarek — simply because she doesn’t post about her kids on social media as often as her ex-husbands do.

 "Smh wake up people. I hardly post anymore ... and I def do not want to post my kids every freaking day to make it a contest of who's a better parent 🤦🏼‍♀️ f that," the mom of three wrote in the caption of a mirror selfie. "This doesn't mean I'm not with my kids — it means the opposite — I am with them — I'm present."

"Stop parent shaming people, stop choosing sides when there is no side to choose,” she added. "My point being — when you see stuff on here take it all with a grain of salt. There is a whole lot of Filters and fake smiles. I've been guilty of faking it too. We are all struggling — some of us are just better at 'masking' it."

The HGTV star first shared the news that she and Ant had split on September 18, shocking fans. 

"Ant and I have made the difficult decision to separate. We are grateful for each other and as always, our children will remain our priority," Christina wrote in an Instagram post. "We appreciate your support and ask for privacy for us and our family as we navigate the future."

Shortly after the news broke, a source told PEOPLE that Christina and Ant had been struggling with their relationship for a year — since the birth of Hudson. “After the baby, they started having conflicts,” the source said.

Despite her full house, the source said Christina was left feeling “lonely and unhappy” with her home life. “Christina found it difficult to balance everything” and “their marriage was struggling.”

The source went on to share that although things may be tough right now, Christina is remaining optimistic about her future: “She never expected to get a divorce. But she is doing okay and focusing on the kids.”
