"Enjoying the last week of my second trimester by hiking to the Cathedral Rock Vortex," Anstead wrote. "Thank you [L'Auberge de Sedona] for arranging this magical hike. The vortex vibes have us feeling relaxed and zen... Rest of the day will consist of a pregnancy massage followed by custom crystal bracelet making and a sunset dinner."

Ant shared his Father's Day tribute to his children on Saturday. Ant has two children, Amelie and Archie, while Anstead shares 8-year-old Taylor and 3-year-old Brayden with El Moussa.

"Being a dad and now a step dad is one of life’s biggest privileges," Anstead wrote, alongside a gallery of photos with his children. "The moment you hold a child, everything changes! To all the dads out there... the step dads.... and those men that just take up the role of dad!! hats off for just being dads! You don’t realise how important you are! I owe my dad so much! And I’m a better dad because of my kids! I owe them so much too! Happy Father’s Day chaps! You deserve to be spoilt today."

As for El Moussa, he spent Father's Day celebrating his time with Taylor and Brayden. He shared the trailer for his new series, Tarek's Flip Side, which included clips in which he played with his children. In one scene, Taylor got to use boxing gloves to punch her father in the chin.

"She almost knocked me out!!!!..Hands down the best video I have ever posted!!!" El Moussa wrote in the caption. "You are all a part of my life and this video is so special to me so I hope you enjoy!!"

He added, "As you all know I just adore and love my munchkins more [than] anything in the world! Everything I do is for them! I want to be better for them! I want to be happy for them! I must be the best man possible for them!"
