On April 8, during an interview with TMZ, HGTV star Tarek El Moussa revealed the gender of his ex-wife’s child.
As Dearly previously reported, El Moussa’s ex-wife, Christina Anstead, married her husband, Ant Anstead on December 22, 2018.
The pair announced that they would be growing their blended family last month.
Ant Anstead and I are so excited to announce #babyanstead coming this September!! The kids are all so excited to meet their new sibling.
However, while the mom-to-be revealed her due month, Christina and Ant decided to keep the gender of their first child together a secret.
That is until El Moussa let the big reveal slip during an interview.
While talking with TMZ, El Mousa was asked if he and his ex-wife truly get along and what it’s like working with her on their show “Flip or Flop” following their divorce, which was finalized in 2018.
“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’s unclear when El Moussa realized that he let the secret slip or how Christina reacted when she learned about his mistake.
According to E! News, Christina’s rep has since confirmed to them that she “is indeed having a baby boy.”
The rep further told US Weekly:
“While Christina and Ant wished they could have shared the news themselves, they are very excited to welcome a baby boy in the fall.”
However, neither Christina nor Ant have gone public with the news since El Moussa’s interview.
Both Ant and Christina have two children from previous relationships. Ant shared a clip of their “beautiful blended family” on Instagram all together:
It’s unclear if Christina and Ant plan to address the gender of their unborn child or if they will choose to wait to address that small blunder once he is born.
