The Flip or Flop star and her British boyfriend are celebrating their six-month anniversary, which she credits to “fate, timing and some really good luck.”
In a tribute post on Instagram Monday, Anstead, 39, posted a sweet photo of the couple — cuddled up on a bench under a flower-adorned wooden arch — with a loving caption.
“What an amazing six months it’s been with this lady!!! Where has the time flown! I’ve loved every second I spend with her! She totally gets me (which is rare) and we have done so so much in such a short time!” he wrote about El Moussa.
“[Christina] is a proper travel buddy! With an amazing sense of humour and gets my British sarcasm (also rare). Timing is weird! Very weird in a great way! A VERY great way!” he continued. “Looking forward to the next chapter #Act2 ❤🔥🔥🇬🇧🇺🇸#HMF x x x.”
In addition to liking the post, El Moussa, 34, left a cute caption, which read, “Fate, timing and some really good luck .. can’t wait for the next 6 months and all the adventures in store.”
Anstead also took the time to reply to a commenter who asked about El Moussa’s working relationship with her ex-husband, Tarek El Moussa, with whom she shares two children — daughter, Taylor, 7, and son Brayden, 2 — and continues to star alongside on Flip or Flop.
“Isn’t it weird that she is still on TV with her ex?” the user asked.
“Not at all! What truly inspiring professionals they both are! Hats off to them,” Anstead wrote in reply.
