A rep for the pregnant HGTV star, 35, tells Us Weekly: “While Christina and Ant wished they could have shared the news themselves, they are very excited to welcome a baby boy in the fall.”
El Moussa, 37, accidentally revealed the big news while he was gushing about his ex-wife’s expanding brood. “She’s remarried, she’s actually pregnant — everybody knows that,” he told TMZ on Monday, April 8. “She’s having a son.”
The Flip or Flop star’s intentions were clearly good, as he continued, “My kids are super excited. I’m excited for her new chapter in life. And they’re a great couple and I really do hope the best for them.”
Last month, the star of the upcoming HGTV series Christina on the Coast announced that she and her husband, who she wed in December, are expecting a baby. “@ant_anstead and I are so excited to announce #babyanstead coming this September,” Christina wrote on Instagram. “The kids are all so excited to meet their new sibling #5 #Gonnaneedabiggercar.”
The little boy is the first child for the California native and the British television presenter, 40. Christina has two children, Taylor, 8, and Brayden, 3, with El Moussa, while the Wheelers Dealers host shares Amelie, 15, and Archie, 12, with his ex-wife, Louise.
Christina and El Moussa got married in 2009 and announced their split in December 2016. The pair continued to work on Flip or Flop together after they went their separate ways and stayed friends for the sake of their kids.
“It’s important when you’re coparenting to make sure that you’re on the same page,” she told Us in June 2018. “We have a schedule where we make sure that if one of us has to travel, that the other picks up for the other one. And we just make sure that whatever’s best for the kids is what we’re going to do.”
Christina and Ant started dating in October 2017 and tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at their Newport Beach, California, home on December 22, less than one year after her divorce was finalized.
