During two seasons as one of The Real Housewives of New York City ladies, Kristen Taekman regularly revealed insights about her family life.

How to Watch

Stream The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

After an eight-year break from the Bravo series, Kristen is back for more sharing on Peacock’s The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: RHONY Legacy, premiering Dec. 14.

The show follows Kristen to sun-drenched St. Barts for a getaway with fellow RHONY alums Kelly Killoren Bensimon, Luann de Lesseps, Dorinda Medley, Sonja Morgan, and Ramona Singer.

Before the series launches, catch up on what you need to know about Kristen’s two kids. 

Who are Kristen Taekman’s children?

Kristen, who’s known for her work as a model and entrepreneur, and Josh Taekman, CEO of the wellness-oriented business, EBOOST, just celebrated their 19th wedding anniversary.

They’re devoted — and busy — parents, with two children, son Cassius, who’s 15, and daughter Kingsley, who’s 11.

RHONY fans met them when Kristen was on RHONY full-time in 2014 and 2015. At the time, the family lived in New York City, but now they reside in Los Angeles.

No matter which coast she’s calling home, Kristen regularly shares posts and images of her kids on social media. She loves marking special moments with them.

Like birthdays! The couple saluted Kingsley when she turned 11 in January 2023.

Happy 11th birthday little lady,” Kristen wrote in a post accompanied by a pic of the birthday girl. 

“Nothing lights up my world more than you Kingsley,” Josh noted in an Instagram post, in which he told her she’s “wise beyond your years.”

In June, Kristen celebrated Cassius’ big day with a sweet shout-out to him.

“Happy 15th Birthday,” Kristen wrote in the post. “I am so proud of you and the person you are becoming. You are kind, generous and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you. Love you!”

Josh echoed that sentiment in his Instagram note. “Wishing the sweetest, most thoughtful, and adventurous young man a day filled with joy and excitement,” he wrote.

More recently, the family of four was snapped in a festive mode while posing by the water for holiday greetings.

Like his dad, Cassius sported a black suit. Kingsley opted for a sparkly red frock, in contrast to her mom’s black dress. 2"024" blown out in gold balloons added to the celebratory theme.

Happy Thanksgiving … some shots from our Christmas card shoot!! So thankful,” Kristen wrote in the post accompanied by the tune “Sleigh Bells.”

Do Kristen’s family dynamics figure into the scene in St. Barts? Find out when Peacock’s The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: RHONY Legacy streams Dec. 14.

The first three episodes will be available the day of premiere, with new episodes available thereafter on Thursdays.
