Tarek El Moussa put together a special celebration for his not-so-little girl.

On Sunday, Tarek, 42, and wife Heather Rae El Moussa, 36, shared a joint Instagram post sharing scenes from a surprise birthday party for newly minted teen daughter Taylor, whom along with son Brayden, 8, Tarek shares with ex Christina Hall.

"Surprised the birthday girl!!!! Taylor turned 13 a few weeks ago, but we wanted to throw her a proper party so we got everyone together and threw her the cutest surprise party - she was so surprised and happy 🥰❤️," he wrote.

"13 years old is a milestone year so it was so cute to see Tay soaking it all in, surrounded by our family 🤍 Such a fun day and we still can’t believe we officially have a teenager in the house!!! 🫣😆🥳."

Later, Tarek shared video on his Instagram Story with scenes from the party, including a moment where Taylor joked with the pair as she raised her birthday cake above her heads a number of times.

"In true Taylor fashion, giving us a dang heart attack with that cake," he wrote, in part, in the caption.

Guests enjoyed mocktails and homemade pizza at the family-filled event, which also included a few different areas to pose for pictures.

After several commenters noted that Heather appeared in more of the photos than Taylor, Tarek addressed the matter, writing, "Just so everyone knows this is a joint post. I chose all of the photos in this post. So to all the people being awful to my incredible wife, be a better person…."

The Selling Sunset star posted a sweet Instagram message to her stepdaughter in honor of her birthday in late September.

"Happy birthday beautiful girl! 🤍🫶🏻 I can’t believe you are 13 today!" the realtor began in the caption to a carousel of photos featuring the mother figure and her stepchild snuggling, bonding and enjoying blended family time together.

"I’ve watched you grow into a smart witty, confident, sweet but strong willed young lady," El Moussa continued. "You have such a huge heart and you are truly unstoppable. I love you so so much and I love being your bonus mom. 🤍."
