Flip or Flop’s Tarek and Christina El Moussa are pretty much the cutest parents ever.

After a difficult journey trying to get pregnant for a second time, the HGTV stars welcomed their son, Brayden, in September 2015, and they aren’t the only members of the household who are overjoyed with the new addition to the family.

“She loves it,” Christina tells PEOPLE of daughter Taylor’s first foray into big sisterhood. “Brayden is obsessed with Taylor. He wakes up about an hour before her, and when I bring him into the room and he sees her, he jumps up and down. They’re best of friends, it’s super cute.”

The couple, who have been famously flipping houses for six seasons (a feat Christina says is “just wild to me”), are also staying busy with a handful of projects, including a line of tile for TREND Group that the couple promoted Thursday night at Stone Source in New York City.

But when they aren’t busy beautifying backyards or spending a little extra on their own — “We ended up going a lot over budget,” Christina says of their outdoor makeover appearing on the series Flip or Flop: Selling Summer — they’re juggling the joys of parenthood.

“They have completely different personalities,” Christina says of the two tots. “Taylor, she’s feistier. Brayden is extremely laid-back — ”

“ — like his dad,” Tarek interjects.

“No, like his mom,” Christina insists.

Brayden might have the makings of an athlete, “He’s going to be a big boy,” Tarek says of his son who’s one year old and 27 pounds, while Taylor could take after her parents’ TV career.

“She’s kind of funny because she’ll say she doesn’t want to, but then right when the camera is on, she turns it on,” Christina says with a laugh. “It’s funny to watch, really. She just lights up, like ‘Ready for this!’”

Asked if the couple is planning on any more additions to the El Moussa family, Christina says: “No, no more kids. One of each, two and done.”
