Christina Hall married Ant Anstead after divorcing Tarek El Moussa

Tarek El Moussa and Christina Hall got married in 2009 and had two children. Their daughter Taylor was born in 2010, and their son Brayden was born in 2015.

The couple launched their HGTV show Flip or Flop in 2013, and the reality series ran successfully for 10 seasons. Hall and El Moussa separated in 2016, and their divorce was finalized in 2018. They continued filming Flip or Flop together throughout their separation and divorce until the show ended in March 2022. 

While separated from El Moussa, Hall started dating English TV presenter Ant Anstead in 2017. Hall and Anstead got married in December 2018 and had a son named Hudson in September 2019. 

In September 2020, one year after their son was born, the couple announced their separation. Anstead and Hall’s divorce was finalized in June 2021. 

Tarek El Moussa and Ant Anstead are friends and hang out together

Although it’s unclear if Tarek El Moussa and Ant Anstead were friendly while the Wheeler Dealers star was married to Christina Hall, the two men have become close. It’s great that they have bonded since their children are half-siblings, but Anstead and El Moussa also spend time together without their kids.

“Tarek and Ant have a great modern day family dynamic,” an inside source told Us Weekly in April. The source said that El Moussa and Anstead “share similar interests and enjoy hanging out,” and they recently went car racing together in Arizona at the Radford Racing School. 

“They took a private plane together from California to Arizona and even posted about it on their social media,” said the source.

The English TV presenter has said that he still considers Taylor and Brayden his stepkids and thinks of El Moussa and his new wife as his extended family. The two men frequently show support for one another by liking each other’s posts on social media. 

But Anstead and El Moussa don’t share the same camaraderie with their ex’s new husband, Josh Hall. “Ant and Tarek don’t really have a relationship with Josh,” the source revealed.

In 2020, El Moussa announced his own Flip or Flop  spinoff series, Flipping 101 with Tarek El Moussa. And he recently announced that he and Young have a new show coming to HGTV called The Flipping El Moussas.

Hall has also moved on. In 2019, she launched a spinoff show titled Christina on the Coast. After her divorce from Anstead was finalized, she married former police officer and real estate agent Josh Hall. And in 2022, she announced that she and her new husband started a production company and will co-produce another new show, Christina in the Country, with HGTV.
