Christina Hall can't get over how quickly her daughter is growing up.

Ahead of the release of the new season of Christina on the Coast, Hall spoke to PEOPLE about her life as a mom of three.

"With Taylor, just having a teenager is wild," Hall says of her only daughter.

The HGTV star, 40, shares daughter Taylor, 13, and son Braydon, 8, with ex Tarek El Moussa, as well as son Hudson, 4, with ex Ant Anstead. Hall is now married to realtor Joshua Hall, who's a proud stepdad to all three children.

"She's just grown up so much from 12 to 13, and I just love spending time with her," the proud mom adds of Taylor. "I love our conversations. We're closer than ever... I just love being her mom."

Asked if her daughter has expressed any interest in following in her mom's interior design footsteps as a teen, Hall tells PEOPLE, "I feel like she was more into that prior to being a teenager."

"Now, she's just more into friends and summer, so they want to go to the beach and do their thing," she continues. "And I understand and I respect that, but I'm sure when she's older, if she is interested in buying real estate, that that's something that she would definitely hop back into."
