As Dearly previously reported, last week, during an interview with TMZ, HGTV star and Christina Anstead’s ex-husband, Tarek El Moussa, accidentally revealed the gender of Christina’s unborn child.
After being asked if he and Christina get along two years after they decided to end their marriage, Tarek told TMZ that he and his ex are “good.”
“Things are good today. You know, she’s remarried, she’s actually pregnant, everybody knows that. She’s having a son. My kids are super excited, I’m super excited for her new chapter in life. They are a great couple and I really do hope the best for them.”
It remains unclear at what point El Moussa realized his mistake, however, it seems as though it created a bit of a PR nightmare for Christina and her new husband, Ant Anstead.
In an Instagram post shared on April 13, Christina revealed that they are in fact having a boy.
Christina captioned the photo:
It’s a boy 💙!! Ant, the kids and I are so excited! This blended family cannot wait to add our 5th child to the mix!
But a comment left by Christina’s publicist and best friend seemingly revealed that the week leading up to the big reveal may not have gone as planned given El Moussa slip:
Public relations specialist, Cassie Zebisch, wrote:
If only there were [behind the scenes] on this whole week
To which Christina replied while a series of laughing emojis.
Ant joked in his own Instagram post that he’s “the very last to the gender reveal game,” adding that they are currently “welcoming any and all name suggestions.”
Following the reveal, in an even lighter post, Christina showed just how fun little brothers can be:
Despite confirming that they are having a boy, Christina, Ant, or El Moussa have not directly addressed his accidental slip up further.
In an earlier statement, a rep told US Weekly that “while Christina and Ant wished they could have shared the news themselves, they are very excited to welcome a baby boy in the fall.”
