Christina El Moussa and her new (British!) boyfriend, Ant Anstead, are about to hit a pretty significant milestone — their six-month anniversary. So how are things going with these new lovers? Well, if Instagram is any indication, really good. Like really, really good. And it doesn’t look like this is just lust. This might be the real thing, people.
Anstead posted a photo of the couple snuggling on a bench under an archway of flowers and captioned it, “What an amazing six months it’s been with this lady!!! Where has the time flown! I’ve loved every second I spend with her! She totally gets me (which is rare) and we have done so so much in such a short time! @christinaelmoussa is a proper travel buddy! With an amazing sense of humour and gets my British sarcasm (also rare). Timing is weird! Very weird in a great way! A VERY great way! Looking forward to the next chapter #Act2
So, Anstead is head over heels, but does El Moussa reciprocate those feelings? Short answer: Yes. El Moussa replied to his post with some love of her own, saying, “Fate, timing and some really good luck… can’t wait for the next 6 months and all the adventures in store”. A few days ago, she posted a pic on her own Instagram of the two of them in an embrace on a dock. “Walk on the wild side with me @ant_ansted,” she captioned it, a reference to the cute T-shirt she’s wearing in the pic.
Anstead may not be a household name here in the U.S., but he’s pretty famous in the U.K. for his automotive TV series For the Love of Cars and Wheelers and Dealers. Last summer, he separated from his wife of 12 years and met El Moussa through a mutual friend at the end of 2017. We learned about their relationship — of course — on social media.
“At the end of 2017 I was lucky enough to be introduced to this guy through a mutual friend. #fate,” El Moussa posted.
They officially made their relationship public on New Year’s Day when she posted a photo of them on a bike ride together. The day before, she had posted a quote that might have been a hint about the changes in her love life. “And suddenly you know… It’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.” Since then, El Moussa has posted photos of the couple in London, Las Vegas, Napa and on safari in South Africa.
Each time the HGTV star has had loving words to say about her man. “Luckiest. @ant_anstead you are #magical she wrote on a photo of them on a beach boardwalk in March.
Last fall El Moussa told In Touch that she’d consider getting married again, but wasn’t ready quite yet. “I love being married but it’s not something I want to think about right now.” That was before she met Anstead, though, so have her feelings changed? A source told Life & Style that the pair is talking about it but that Anstead still has to finalize his divorce. He’d better get on that!
This sweet couple will no doubt find some adventure on which to celebrate their time together, and hopefully, they’ll share a pic or two with us. Happy anniversary to the lovebirds!
