Oh, baby! She’s already a mom to two beautiful children, but Christina Anstead just announced she’s pregnant with baby No. 3! The former Flip or Flop star revealed that she and her new husband, Ant Anstead, are expecting their first child together this fall when she took to Instagram to make the exciting announcement earlier today on Friday, March 22.
“@Ant_Anstead and I are so excited to announce #babyanstead coming this September!” the 35-year-old captioned the pic of the two smiling as Christina held out an ultrasound photo while her hubby tightly hugged her. “The kids are all so excited to meet their new sibling.” Take a look at the sweet announcement that Christina shared below!
Now that Christina and Ant’s brood is growing, the couple will soon have five growing kids running around their house. The blonde beauty is already the mom to her daughter, Taylor Reese El Moussa, 8, and Bradyen James El Moussa, 3, with her ex-husband, Tarek El Moussa. The Wheelers Dealers host, 40, is also a father to his daughter, Amelie Anstead, 15, and son Archie Anstead, 12, from his previous marriage to ex-wife Louise Anstead.
Although her smile shines brighter than ever now, getting to this happy point in her life wasn’t so easy for Christina. In May 2016, Christina and Tarek privately separated after nearly 10 years of marriage but it wasn’t until December of that year that they publicly announced they were headed for a divorce.
Despite ending their marriage, the parents-of-two chose to keep their long-running HGTV show Flip or Flop on the air. Following their divorce, which was finalized in January 2018, Christina and Tarek sat down with the Today show’s Natalie Morales to discuss the challenges of still working together. “It’s part of who we are and what we do, and for us to just throw everything away, it just wasn’t worth it,” Tarek, 37, admitted.
Although Flip or Flop will be continuing with its 8th season premiering this spring, the expectant mama is also getting a new HGTV show of her own titled Christina on the Coast. The eight-episode series will showcase Christina as she expands her design business in Southern California. Last month, the real estate investor opened up about starring in her new show, which will also feature both her engagement and wedding with Ant!
“He’s hot! He’s a keeper,” she gushed to Entertainment Tonight at the time about her handsome hubby. “I know, when I was first sent a photo of him, I was like, ‘What?!’ Zoom in, like geez. He’s a cutie.” Congratulations to the Ansteads on their pregnancy!
