When Does Christina Anstead’s New HGTV Show Premiere?

Christina Anstead is moving on in a big way. Since her divorce from her HGTV co-star Tarek El Moussa, the 35-year-old has found a new man – TV presenter Ant Anstead – gotten married, and is now expecting a new baby. Oh, and she’s got her own HGTV show in the works too. Christina on the Coast will premiere this spring.

The eight-episode series Christina on the Coast will offer viewers a look into Christina’s life as a single mom running her own design business. Unlike most programming on HGTV, this one will be more of a reality series and focus a lot on Christina’s personal life. But fans who love design will still get to see her transform their outdated homes into stunning properties.

“Each episode is going to show a glimpse into a real life, selling my home in Yorba Linda, house-hunting and moving into my new place,” Anstead told The Hollywood Reporter when the show was announced last June. “It’s going to show me trying to balance it all with kids and work.”

It premieres May 23

Viewers will finally get a look at the show on May 23, when it premieres at 9 p.m. on HGTV. Anstead’s husband offered a sneak peek earlier this month, when he shared a few photos from a shopping trip for tiles, writing “I got roped into filming with the wife today for her EPIC new show.”

The first episode will document Anstead’s move from Yorba Linda to Newport Beach and the process of designing her new home. In the following episodes, she’ll work with homeowners whose properties need a special touch.

For her part, Anstead told People last year she is “excited to do my own thing” on the new show.  

“I’ll be able to do what I like more which is the design part,” she said. “That’s always been what I’m good at, and people are always asking me to come help them do their house. It’s going to be fun to be able to add my taste, and not have a flip budget.”

But she’s not giving up the show that made her famous. She and her ex Tarek will be back for Season 8 this summer. He also has his own spinoff show for HGTV in the works. The still-untitled show will involve him mentoring rookie house flippers. ” New beginnings and I’m just getting started!!,” he wrote in an Instagram post.

New baby on the way

In more exciting news, Christina and Ant just announced that they are expecting their first child together. They made the announcement on Instagram, where Christina shared a sonogram image with the caption: “@ant_anstead and I are so excited to announce #babyanstead coming this September!! The kids are all so excited to meet their new sibling.”

Both Christina and Ant have two children from their previous marriages. The couple married in December. Christina and Tarek split in 2016 and divorced in early 2018.
