Christina El Moussa is officially off the market!

The 35-year-old Flip or Flop star tied the knot with Wheelers Dealers host Ant Anstead on Saturday, according to People.

The couple managed to keep a lid on their nuptials by inviting 70 close friends and family to meet them at their Newport Beach, California home where guests thought they’d be bussed to the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade. Instead, they found themselves witnessing the couple’s "I Do's," which had a fitting "Winter Wonderland" theme.

“We wanted it to be rustic romance,” El Moussa, who chose a lace dress by Ines Di Santo for the big day, told the magazine.

“We wanted to make it about the kids,” the 39-year-old groom also shared. “It’s the six of us. We’re a blended family so it was really important for them to be a part of it.”

El Moussa and her ex-husband, Tarek El Moussa, share a daughter Taylor and son Brayden, ages 8 and 3, respectively. Anstead also has a daughter and son, Amelie, 15, and Archie, 12, from a previous marriage. 

So how did the couple manage to put their ceremony together while also keeping it a secret? El Moussa says that’s all her longtime friend and publicist Cassie Zebisch’s doing.

“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!”

Tarek and Christina split in late 2016. She and Anstead began dating in October of 2017, an occasion she celebrated with a sweet, PDA-filled photo when the one-year anniversary arrived.

"A year ago today @ant_anstead called me for the first time and we spoke for 29 mins two days later while he was at Sema he FaceTimed me (I was thinking who FaceTimes) anyways I answered and we spoke for 2.5 hours," she wrote alongside the photo. "... Two days later we met for the first time and we’ve been inseparable ever since. #FATE."

If you aren’t in the mood for a sentimental / mushy post I suggest you keep scrolling. 😏..... A year ago today @ant_anstead called me for the first time and we spoke for 29 mins two days later while he was at Sema he FaceTimed me (I was thinking who FaceTimes) anyways I answered and we spoke for 2.5 hours ... two days later we met for the first time and we’ve been inseparable ever since. #FATE @ant_anstead you have showed me what real unconditional love is. You take me for what I am, flawed and a bit crazy, and love all of me just the way I am. You have never once made me feel bad for anything in my past. You put me in my place when I need to be put there. Hold me when I’m having a bad day. I love this life with you. I love our blended family. I can’t wait to see where the next year takes us. I know it’s going to be magical. ♥️🔥🔥💫 To quote my fav artist “Wise men say only fools rush in .... but I can’t help falling in love with you” ♥️

On Saturday, El Moussa also shared that she intends to take her new hubby’s last name.

“It has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?” she playfully asked. “Christina Anstead. We couldn’t be any happier!”

Congrats, you two!
