Christina Anstead has a son on the way!

The pregnant Flip or Flop and Christina on the Coast star is expecting a baby boy with husband Ant Anstead, her publicist Cassie Zebisch confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

“While Christina and Ant wished they could have shared the news themselves, they are very excited to welcome a baby boy in the fall,” Zebisch says.

The confirmation comes after Christina’s ex-husband Tarek El Moussa sat down for an interview with TMZ Live in which he let slip the sex of the couple’s baby on the way.

“Things are good today. She’s remarried, she’s actually pregnant — everybody knows that,” he said. “She’s having a son. My kids are super excited. I’m excited for her new chapter in life. They’re a great couple and I really do hope the best for them.”

Christina, 35, shares two children with 37-year-old El Moussa — son Brayden James, 3½, and daughter Taylor Reese, 8 — while Ant, 40, is dad to son Archie, 12, and daughter Amelie, 15, with his ex Louise.

On the same day as his ex-wife’s announcement, El Moussa celebrated parenthood and being a dad to their children, sharing a smiling photo of the trio cuddled up on a couch.

“My loves ❤️ my life ❤️ my everything ❤️ … this picture represents the most important part of my life … being a father!!!!!” he captioned the sweet image.

“No matter what happens during my day … I never take negativity home with me,” the dad of two continued. “When I have my babies I come home and can’t help but smile. I smile because I know no matter what we all love each other and nothing can break our bond. I just adore these two:).”
