On Tuesday, The Flipping El Moussas star, 36, heaped praise on her husband Tarek El Moussa for the release of his “vulnerable and real” new book, Flip Your Life: How to Find Opportunity in Distress—in Real Estate, Business, and Life (out now).

Alongside a photo of their one-year-old son Tristan holding a copy of the tell-all memoir-meets-self-help guide, Heather wrote on Instagram, “Tristan wants to let you know that his dad’s new book JUST LAUNCHED and that if he’s willing to, he’ll share them with you 🤍😂 We are so proud of @therealtarekelmoussa for the official launch of Flip Your Life and I’m just so proud of everything you’ve been able to accomplish.”

“This book not only teaches you about real estate but it’s also the story of Tarek’s *very* personal life that includes things like his struggles, cancers, divorce, addiction, business struggles, and more in a really vulnerable and real way,” the Selling Sunset alum continued.

The post also included a second snap of Tristan, who turned 1 last week, smiling as he held onto a box filled with copies of his dad’s book.

“Omg he’s just the cutest,” wrote Tarek, 42, in the comments section, adding three red heart emojis in a separate comment.

Writing about the incident in his memoir, the HGTV star shares that he grew up in a “rough neighborhood” in Southern California and was involved in a gang fight at age 17.

"When I came to, I was sitting in the back of a police car, in handcuffs, charged with assault and battery, aggravated assault, attempted murder, and assault with a deadly weapon. Today I’m convinced that the police arrived at exactly the right moment. If I hadn’t been arrested, I would have been killed," he writes.

Tarek recounts the police determined he acted in self-defense and because he was a juvenile, the records were sealed. He spent a short time in a juvenile detention center after his arrest and he exclusively told PEOPLE the situation was one he’ll “never forget.”
