All it took was one phone call!

Christina Anstead and her husband, Ant, are celebrating the two-year anniversary of when he first called her on the phone to ask her out. "I called you Two years ago today! And straight away I knew I knew you!" Ant captioned a blurry Instagram photo of him and his wife. "Since then we have done so much! It’s crazy!! Two years ago I was lost! I was half! And You made me whole! You completed me! You get me!"

The 40-year-old Ant Anstead Master Mechanic star added, "I love you! And I love our imperfections! I continue to pinch myself every day. ??"

Further explaining why he chose the pic, Ant noted, "We have so many amazing pictures over the last two years! But I really LOVE this one! Taken secretly by Shannon having known you five days.... (she must have thought I was really antisocial ?). This is how I looked at you, and have done every day since! Thank you for choosing me! Not that we had a choice ?✨?⚡️?? ❤️❤️?? #HMF"

Christina also celebrated the anniversary by sharing a pic of the two kissing and recalling that she had just left a spa where she had spent three days "fasting my mind, body and spirit."

The 36-year-old Flip or Flop star -- who was married to her HGTV co-star, Tarek El Moussa, from 2009 to 2018 -- wrote that she asked her friend, Clayton Jennings, to pray that she would "find a man who treated me and my kids with love and respect, that I would no longer play small."

Christina said it wasn't long before she was being set up with Ant, whom she went out with a few days after he called her. "We have literally been inseparable ever since. I told my dad at a hockey game a week after we met that we were going to get married," she wrote. "...Now two years later -- married with a wonderful blended family, careers we both love and beautiful baby boy."

Her post sweetly concludes, "Life has a funny way of letting things fall into place when you least expect it."

2 years ago today this guy called me for the first time. I had just left @wecarespaca (where I had checked myself in for 3 days of fasting my mind body and spirit) while there I had really focused on making positive changes in my life. It was such an incredible stay. I literally felt high on life. On 10/27 the first night of my stay after Reiki and spiritual healing a lot of emotions came up and I was feeling sad about a lot of things. I called my friend @claytonjennings1 and asked him to pray for me. He prayed I would find a man who treated me and my kids with love and respect, that I would no longer play small, I would step into the life I deserved and that from that day forward everything would begin to fall into place. The next day I woke up with a text from a friend of ours named Walter who had just met Ant and thought we were the perfect fit. 2 kids, similar careers, just gone through a divorce and he was a really NICE guy. Seemed too good to be true, but the timing of the Clayton call seemed like Fate was dealing me a lucky hand. 10/29 Ant called me and 11/2 we went on our first date. We have literally been inseparable ever since. I told my dad at a hockey game a week after we met that we were going to get married. He said “well if you are saying it then you probably are” 😂. Now 2 years later - married with a wonderful blended family, careers we both love and beautiful baby boy. Life has a funny way of letting things fall into place when you least expect it. 💫🙏🏼

In addition to being head over heels for Ant, Christina also seems to be getting along with her ex-husband. Over the weekend, Tarek posted a photo of him and their son, Brayden, dressed up as Paw Patrol characters. 

Loving the father-son moment, Christina commented, "Please wear this trick or treating, thank you." Tarek, 38, joked back, "$5."

ET recently caught up with Tarek and his new girlfriend, 32-year-old Heather Rae Young, who revealed what it was like when Christina and Heather first met. Here's what went down, according to the couple:
