“Happy Father’s Day to everybody. Today is an exciting day for me because of course, I’m a father of two, so Tay and Bray, I’m super excited,” he said in an Instagram story video previewing a clip of his digital series Tarek’s Flip Side. “I hope you have the best Father’s Day ever.”

In the clip, Taylor gushes over El Moussa, telling the cameras, “He’s fun, playful. He’s not strict. He says he’s gonna put my little brother in time out for two minutes – ends up for five seconds.

The reality star also praises his kids, saying in the video, “I can say without a doubt in my mind I am one million times a better person than I ever would have been if I didn’t have my kids.”
