Flip or Flop… and to have and to hold. Flip or Flop’s Christina El Moussa married fellow TV personality Ant Anstead on Saturday, December 22, in a secret wedding held at the couple’s home.
People first reported the secret wedding news shortly after the couple exchanged vows at their Newport Beach property in California. The couple completely surprised their guests after setting up a day where 70 family members and friends would gather to go watch the local Christmas Boat Parade in Newport Beach.
The 70 or so guests were supposed to gather at the couple’s home to be transported over. What happened instead was that the dozens of loved ones walked into a wedding at the home after seeing that the bride and groom had erected a floral altar on their front yard.

There to witness the nuptials was El Moussa’s two kids with ex-husband Tarek El Moussa, as well as Anstead’s two teenage children with his ex.
“We wanted to make it about the kids,” Anstead told the mag. “It’s the six of us. We’re a blended family so it was really important for them to be a part of it.”
The couple has been together officially since October 2017. Both have been rather vocal about their love for each other with El Moussa telling E! News this past June that she was in it for the long haul with the Wheelers Dealers host.
“He always just says, ‘You’re an amazing person. You’re an amazing mom. You’re an amazing girlfriend.’ He’s so positive with me that he’s just really lifted me up in so many ways,” she told the outlet. “I could definitely see myself getting married to Ant in the future and I know the kids would be very happy about that.”
