AceShowbiz - Christina El Moussa is once again a married woman! The 35-year-old reality star surprised the world by announcing that she tied the knot with "Wheelers Dealers" host Ant Anstead on Saturday, December 22. In fact, the lovebirds even surprised their guests who didn't even know that the were invited to their wedding ceremony in Newport Beach, California.
According to PEOPLE, which first broke the news, Christina and Ant asked 70 of their closest friends and family members to meet at their house, where a charter bus would then transport the group to watch the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade. But instead of parade, the guests found themselves witnessing the couple's "I Do's" under an altar in their front yard.
For the ceremony, Christina wore a lace dress by designer Ines Di Santo. Their children from previous relationships were also there to witness the moment. "We wanted to make it about the kids," the former wife of Tarek El Moussa dished to the magazine. "It's the six of us. We're a blended family so it was really important for them to be a part of it."

So how did the couple manage to put their ceremony together while also keeping it a secret from everyone? Well, according to Christina, her longtime and publicist Cassie Zebich played a huge part on it. "We literally owe this wedding to her," she said. "She pulled it off. She met with the vendors, she set up the catering. I wanted a Maestros theme, like a nice steakhouse. She did it all!"
Still, there were times that the now-newlyweds were incredibly nervous whether their long-kept secret would eventually get found out by the media. "Every day we were checking the internet to see if anyone found out," the "Flip or Flop" star recalled. "Then the day we went to get our marriage license, the guy working was like hyperventilating, excited. We had to tell him this is a huge secret. No one knows."
Now that they have officially become husband and wife, Christina admitted she "couldn't be any happier," adding that she had also changed her last name to Anstead. "It has a nice ring to it, doesn't it? Christina Anstead," she gushed.
Christina and Ant started dating in October 2017 following her split from Tarek in 2016.
