They did it! Flip or Flop star Christina El Moussa married Wheelers Dealers host Ant Anstead in a secret "winter wonderland" ceremony on Saturday. According to People, the wedding took place at the couple's home in Newport Beach, California.
The couple, who have been dating since October 2017, kept the entire wedding completely under wraps - even their guests were surprised. People reports that 70 of the couple's closest friends and family arrived at the home expecting to attend the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade. Instead, they walked into a wedding, where El Moussa and Anstead exchanged vows in their front yard.
The couple's children also played a major role in the ceremony “We wanted to make it about the kids. It’s the six of us. We’re a blended family so it was really important for them to be a part of it," Anstead told People.

As for the look and feel of the ceremony, the couple "wanted it to be rustic romance,” El Moussa explained. For her second wedding, the bride wore a lace dress by Ines Di Santo. She also added that she has officially changed her name to that of her new husband's. “It has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it Christina Anstead. We couldn’t be any happier," she says.

There's no word yet on how her ex-husband, Tarek El Moussa, reacted to the news of the secret ceremony. However, in their first joint interview since they split, Tarek said he approved of Anstead, so it's probably safe to assume he's happy for the couple.
