Here's the story, of a lovely lady, who was running multiple major HGTV shows while bringing up two very lovely kids...Okay, the song doesn't quite play out, but Christina Anstead—formerly Christina El Moussa—has announced a new addition to the Anstead Bunch. In an Instagram post this morning, the Flip Or Flop star shared she and husband Ant are expecting their first child together, due this September.
Baby Anstead will be the couple's fifth child, but their first together.
The TV stars each have two children from previous marriages. Christina has a 7-year-old daughter, Taylor, and 3-year-old son, Brayden, with her ex-husband and Flip or Flop co-star Tarek El Moussa, while Ant has a 15-year-old daughter, Amelie, and 12-year-old son, Archie, from his previous marriage to Louise Anstead.
"The kids are all so excited to meet their new sibling," Christina wrote in the Instagram post, adding #gonnaneedabiggercar at the end.
Ant also took to Insta to share the news, posting a photo of all four kids, with a picture of the sonogram in the center.
The posts have wracked up hundreds of comments within minutes, as friends and fans send their congratulations.
"You guys make love believable," one fan wrote.
"Yay! Congratulations!! I’ve loved following you for so many years and getting to see you rise again and find true love and real happiness!" another shared.
The announcement came three months after Christina and Ant's December wedding.
The couple invited friends and family to her Newport Beach, CA, home for what everyone thought would be a day out, watching a holiday boat parade—and wound up being a romantic backyard ceremony, reported. Ant told the crowd "Got ya!" as he stood next to the pastor, waiting for Christina to walk down the aisle to a string quartet version of "Stand By Me."
Christina and Ant met about a year after she and then-husband Tarek called it quits. She's been very open about their divorce, explaining how they've chosen to co-parent together. In a July 2018 interview, she said she and Tarek "managed to build something even bigger than we had before" through this journey. She and Ant have also talked about how they met each other at a crucial time in their lives, and how they've changed each other for the better.
"We saved each other," Christina told People back in December about their relationship.
Christina's baby bump is growing strong!
When Christina was pregnant previously, she filmed a with pal/nutritionist Cara Clark. This time around, when she shared a pic of her growing baby bump at the week-17 mark, she mentioned that she and Ant were doing a 1,000-step workout.
Tarek El Moussa just revealed the sex of the baby.
It's a boy! According to Tarek's recent interview with , "[Christina]'s having a son!" and he couldn't be happier for her. Hopefully she doesn't mind that he spilled the beans before she had a chance to...Exes, am I right?

Ant's Invited Fans to Send Him Baby Name Ideas.
Tarek revealed the baby's gender before his parents had a chance to tell the world, but that didn't stop Christina and Ant from announcing their baby's gender on their own. They both shared a photo from their gender reveal party on Instagram, letting fans in on the excitement of learning that baby No. 5 would be a boy.
"I'm the very last to the gender reveal game..." Ant captioned, adding how thrilled he, Christina and the kids are about having a new member of the fam on the way. "Welcoming any and all name suggestions...!?"
Naturally, that last comment sent suggestions flying in: Aston Martin (a nod to Ant's love of cars), Christian Anthony (a combo of both parents' names, one commenter noted), Axel (again with the cars!), Grayson or Jayson (so three kids' names would rhyme: Bray, Tay and Jay/Gray!), and Bentley (more cars!), just to name a few. We'll see what they choose.
