El Moussa, 37, told TMZ that his relationship with Christina, 35, was strained after they split in December 2016, “but things are good today.” He gushed, “She’s remarried, she’s actually pregnant — everybody knows that.”
However, the next words out of the Flip of Flop star’s mouth were unexpected: “She’s having a son.”
The reality television personality 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.”
Christina’s rep confirmed to Us Weekly that she is expecting a boy: “While Christina and Ant wished they could have shared the news themselves, they are very excited to welcome a baby boy in the fall.”
Christina and Ant, 40, announced their exciting baby news in March. “@ant_anstead and I are so excited to announce #babyanstead coming this September,” she wrote on Instagram. “The kids are all so excited to meet their new sibling #5 #Gonnaneedabiggercar.”
The star of the upcoming HGTV series Christina on the Coast later revealed that the first trimester of her pregnancy was “brutal.” She explained, “It really blind sided [sic] me. Nausea, exhaustion, too many food aversions, too many carbs.”
Luckily, Christina, who found out she was pregnant right “after the honeymoon,” had the British television presenter to help her get through the tough time. “Thank you to my amazing husband for being so supportive while his new bride was complaining and a little more cray than usual,” she concluded on Instagram.
Christina and Ant tied the knot in an intimate backyard ceremony in December, less than a year after her divorce with El Moussa was finalized. The California native shares daughter Taylor, 8, and son Brayden, 3, with the reality television personality, while the Wheeler Dealers host has daughter Amelie, 15, and son Archie, 12, with his ex-wife, Louise Anstead.
