Flip or Flop star Christina El Moussa is a married woman! The HGTV superstar wed her beau, Ant Anstead in a stunning winter wonderland-themed wedding on December 22, 2018. After a devastating divorce from her ex-husband and business partner– fellow Flip or Flop star Tarek El Moussa, El Moussa has found love again with Anstead.
El Moussa and Anstead began dating in Oct. 2017, and it was clear that they were head over hills from the beginning. In fact, El Moussa went public with their romance almost right away, and the mother-of-two had no qualms about sharing her new love on Instagram. Now that the pair are officially husband and wife, here’s what we know about Ant Anstead.
Ant Anstead has his own TV series too
English-born Anstead is a TV host and motor specialist. His TV series is the highly popular Channel 4 series, Wheeler Dealers. He also co-hosts For the Love of Cars. Since both he and El Moussa have such similar jobs — though in very different fields they clicked right away. The Flip or Flop star told Country Living, “We have a very similar job, so we understand each other’s work hours and everything that goes into that.”
Also, it helps that Anstead is super open and totally comfortable with his wife working with her ex-husband. When asked if he thought it was weird he explained, “Not at all! What truly inspiring professionals they both are! Hats off to them.”
Anstead is a family man
El Moussa is a doting mother to her two little ones, a daughter Taylor and son Brayden, and Anstead has two teenage children, a daughter Amelie, and son Archie, from a previous marriage. When asked about what was most important for their wedding day, Anstead told People, “We wanted to make it about the kids. It’s the six of us. We’re a blended family, so it was really important for them to be a part of it.”
A secret winter wonderland wedding
Though most Flip or Flop fans knew that El Moussa and Anstead were serious, many of us had no clue that the pair were discussing marriage. That’s exactly how the TV hosts wanted things. They wed Dec 22, 2018, at their home in Newport Beach, California in front of 70 friends and loved ones. It was so secret in fact that their guest thought they were merely going to watch the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade. El Moussa said of her big day, “We wanted it to be rustic romance. It was just perfect for us. Everything we wanted.”
El Moussa no more!
El Moussa is getting more than just a new husband and a larger family; she’s also getting a name change. The bride will now go by Christina Anstead. She told People, “It has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? Christina Anstead. We couldn’t be any happier!”
We’re sure we’ll get to see more of the blissful newlyweds when Christina’s show, Christina on the Coast premiered in 2019 on HGTV. She will be fixing homes in Northern California this time around. Season 8 of Flip or Flop is also set to drop in the Spring of 2019.
