Our Story

Rebekah Maddux El-Hakam (pronounced El-Hawk-um) is a mommy blogger, blogging at ElMomma.com since 2008. ElMomma began as a place to document life with 2 children and one on the way. It grew to a place that now documents all things ElMomma and has well over 150,000 views!
The El-Hakam family has also grown a lot over these last 13 years. We are raising 5 children ages 2 to 16 years. Currently the 4 big Els are enrolled in 3 different schools and we are busier than ever! Not to mention, we have a toddler in the mix. Rebekah and her husband, Moustapha live in Bellaire, Texas with the 5 Els where Rebekah is a work-at-home mom, blogger, community volunteer, creator and singer-songwriter. The El-Hakam family lived through the loss of their daughter, Mary-Linda at 18 weeks gestation in 2017. Mary-Linda had a missed-diagnosis of Fetal Maternal Hemorrhage. Rebekah was raised in Oak Ridge North, a suburb of Houston, graduated from the University of Texas at Austin and lived in Los Angeles for four years before marrying Moustapha and moving back to Texas and starting their family. Rebekah stays at home with baby Jimmie and continues to write and create music.
