Should Christina El Moussa Really Do a New Show With Her Current Boyfriend?
In early December, Christina El Moussa and her beau of one-year, Ant Anstead sparked rumors that they’d be appearing in a show together. The rumors started when El Moussa shared an Instagram story depicting the couple “working” together on a Saturday. For his part in the rumor mill, Anstead, using a similar photo, asked his Instagram to guess what show the pair was filming. Anstead hinted that perhaps the couple was working on a soon-to-debut show that will feature their personal lives.
Who are Christina El Moussa and Ant Anstead?
Christina El Moussa is the star of Flip or Flop, a reality television show that follows El Moussa and her now former husband as they navigate the world of flipping houses. The El Moussas first debuted on HGTV in 2013. The show followed the couple as they bought homes, renovated them, and then placed them back on the real estate market. Before their work with HGTV, both Tarek and Christina were real estate agents.
Ant Anstead, on the other hand, is a well-versed British television presenter most famous for his work on Wheeler Dealers. The show follows the process of saving old cars and restoring them to their former glory. The result is a “flipped” car that is the sold to enthusiasts. Before his work on television, Anstead was a police constable. He left his law enforcement career in 2005 to build and restore cars.
Christina El Moussa and Ant Anstead as a couple
Christina and Ant met in 2017, and have been dating for about a year. The pair’s debut as a couple came on the heels of El Moussa splitting from her husband and business partner, Tarek El Moussa in 2016. The couple’s divorce was finalized in January of 2018. Ant Anstead is also coming off a serious relationship. He split from his wife of 12 years, Louise Anstead in 2017.
The couple was first spotted in public together in late 2017, and Anstead confirmed that the pair had met in November of that year. He confirmed the dates when he mentioned that he and El Moussa were celebrating their 6-month anniversary in April of 2018. The couple is said to be living together in the Newport Beach, California home that will be featured on El Moussa’s new television show Christina on the Coast.
Before dating Anstead, El Moussa had a short relationship with Doug Spedding, a troubled businessman. El Moussa ended the relationship with Spedding when she discovered he was in regular contact with a former girlfriend. Spedding, a father of six, entered rehab shortly after the split was announced.
Is a joint show a good idea for Christina and Ant?
While Anstead and El Moussa seem to have a stable and loving relationship, their hints of a potential show together have some viewers worried. Christina and her former husband Tarek also appeared to have a stable relationship when they began appearing on Flip or Flop, but that soon soured and led to their divorce. It is not known if the television show was a contributing factor to their relationship ending, but the couple has cited stress as a reason their marriage ended.
Tarek and Christina battled a plethora of personal problems during the early seasons of Flip or Flop. Tarek battled cancer, and together the couple battled infertility. Those problems are not present between Anstead and El Moussa, so perhaps their relationship is on more solid ground.
While there is no official word on whether or not Anstead and El Moussa will appear together on the small screen, both are connected to Discovery. It would make sense that the duo would be featured on one of the company’s channels, but should Christina and Ant put their love on the line for a television show?
