It’s a boy!
After HGTV star Christina Anstead and her new husband Ant Anstead revealed they were expecting their first child together back in late March, it was unexpectedly her ex-husband and Flip or Flop co-hostTarek El Moussa who revealed that his ex and her husband are expecting a son.
On Tuesday, April 9, Tarek sat down for an interview with TMZ Live where he let slip that Christina and Ant Anstead are expecting a boy.
“Things are good today. She’s remarried, she’s actually pregnant — everybody knows that,” he said. “She’s having a son. My kids are super excited. I’m excited for her new chapter in life. They’re a great couple and I really do hope the best for them.”
Following Tarek’s unexpected announcement, a rep for Christina and Ant said, “While Christina and Ant wished they could have shared the news themselves, they are very excited to welcome a baby boy in the fall.”
The new baby will be the fifth between the Anstead’s as Christina, 35, shares son Brayden, 3, and daughter Taylor, 8, with ex-husband Tarek El Moussa while Ant, 40, shares son Archie, 12, and daughter Amelie, 15, with his ex, Louise.
Since their March announcement, Christina Anstead has shared some pictures of her growing baby bump and revealed in a post on March 26 that the pregnancy has been pretty difficult. “Now that I can talk about … The first trimester was brutal!!! Maybe it’s my age (35- considered a geriatric pregnancy ) lol… or maybe I just forgot how bad it was with Tay and Bray.. but yikes it really blind sided me. Nausea, exhaustion, too many food aversions, too many carbs….,” she shard in her post. “Anyways I’m officially back to feeling somewhat normal. Going to try and enjoy the second trimester while it’s here. Thank you to my amazing husband for being so supportive while his new bride was complaining and a little more cray than usual. We found out we were expecting after the honeymoon and I’m officially 15 weeks now,” she added.
