"Both couples are hoping to put this incident behind them and move forward," a source spilled to Us Weekly of the public spat.
According to the insider, the Christina on the Coast star and the Tarek's Flip Side host — who share Taylor, 11, and Brayden, 6 — "really try to handle issues privately" following their 2018 split. "This one just got captured by cameras and everyone's embarrassed by what happened."
The insider went on to note the couples feel it's important to have a solid relationship as coparents "and certainly don't want their image ruined" over an embarrassing argument.
As OK! previously reported, a source claimed the fight happened because Christina and Heather had been butting heads over parenting decisions. "Christina feels Heather oversteps her boundaries when she parents her children and Heather doesn't feel like she gets enough respect from Christina," the source explained.
The couples later took to social media on Monday, May 9, to release a joint statement addressing the situation alongside a picture of Brayden in a hospital bed.
"Stressful 24 hours but a good reminder how important team work/co-parenting is," the statement shared to Christina's Instagram page read. "We were all under pressure but when it really matters we were all there for Brayden doing our part."
In another post, Christina explained the 6-year-old was rushed to the ER to have an emergency appendectomy. "Nothing like seeing your child in excruciating pain 😣..luckily the surgery went well and he is recovering and in good spirits," the mom-of-three wrote. "The entire staff at Mission Hospital was amazing and we are all grateful it was caught early. Blessed to have 3 healthy + happy kids, caring family and friends and a husband who stands by my side."
