HGTV star Christina Anstead was shocked to find out she was pregnant shortly after her honeymoon with husband Ant Anstead — so she decided to give him a little surprise too.
“It was the day after we landed from our honeymoon and right away, pregnant! And I was in the bathroom by myself, like, ‘Oh, my God! What?’ I was shocked, like, ‘Ah, no wonder! I’m nesting already!’”
Christina said that her husband was “in the bathroom or something” after she got the result. That’s when she popped to the pregnancy test somewhere that she knew Ant would look.
She told People:
“He always makes coffee in the morning, so I just chucked the pregnancy test in the coffee cup because I didn’t know what to do and I wanted to surprise him, and I ran around the corner.”
Ant said he didn’t immediately realize what his wife was trying to show him:
“I thought it was a thermometer. I was thinking, ‘Is the coffee machine broken?’”
After Christina shared her pregnancy reveal, many fans congratulated the couple on their joyous news.
But some social media users weren’t happy about the expectant mom’s use of a coffee cup. Many Facebook users called it “gross.”
One commenter wrote, “Hope he didn’t drink it. [barfing emoji] ” Another said, “Couldn’t figure any other way but to put it in his coffee?”
Regardless of how social media users feel, the couple are thrilled to be welcoming a fifth child into their family.
Christina has two children with her previous husband, Tarek El Moussa, and Ant also has two children from a past relationship. Ant said, “Five’s a good number” when it comes to kids.
The couple said that their bundle of joy is due some time in September.
