Despite the on-going divorce, Ant was already openly dating and flaunting his relationship with his then-girlfriend on his social media accounts.
New Girlfriend After Divorce: "Amazing" Dad To Wife's Children
The motor specialist soon changed his dating track from his ex-wife to a new girlfriend, Christina El Moussa.
He started dating the beautiful 'Flip or Flop' star Christina El Moussa the same year he divorced his ex-wife after he met through a mutual friend at the end of the year.
However, the pair was first speculated to be dating only on 1 January 2018, after Christina Instagrammed a picture with Ant during their cycle ride together. Ant's girlfriend also wrote that they should go on a “double date soon" in the comment section of the image.
Since the image, the pair has been uploading pictures on social media time and again. Both the lovers can be seen spending quality time with one another, be it enjoying their trip to South Africa or spending their weekend in the Napa Valley, California.
The duo also got spotted with Christina's children, from her previous husband Tarek El Moussa in Anaheim in March 2018.
Similarly, Ant's then-girlfriend Christina also wished him a happy birthday on his 39th birthday sharing an Instagram image on 28 March 2018. In the caption, she also revealed that she is lucky to have him in her life.
She added that Ant is an "amazing dad" to her children too and quoted him as:-
"driven, talented, humble, kind, patient, great listener, fun, hilarious, spiritual and hot."

Also, the couple celebrated their six months anniversary on 30th April 2018.
Later that year, it came to the limelight that the two are already planning to get married. One of the sources close to In Touch reported in April 2018 that the lovebirds were smitten in love and already talking about the marriage. The source stated:-
"They’re already talking marriage. She loves his down-to-earth personality. He's a TV star but he's very low-key and isn't into the glitzy showbiz lifestyle."
While Ant was still not officially divorced with his first wife, Ant and his then-new love interest has already started to swirl the wedding and getting engaged talks.
Winter Wonderland Wedding Theme; Family Of Six
Since Wheelers Dealers host and his then-girlfriend was making the buzz about getting engaged earlier this month, they are now happily married!
The Wheelers Dealers host tied the knot with his girlfriend Christina El Moussa in a secret Winter Wonderland themed wedding held at their residence in Newport Beach, California, on 22 December 2018.
Only 70 close friends and family attended their weddings. More importantly, the newly married couple invited the guests to view the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade and later the guest found out that, boat parade was a bait to call them on their wedding.
Also, Ant and Christina's children from the previous relationship attended the wedding ceremony. The newly married couple explained that the wedding was all about their kids and called them a blended family.
"We wanted to make it about the kids. It’s the six of us. We’re a blended family so it was really important for them to be a part of it.”

Girlfriend-Turned-Wife Pregnant; Reveals Baby's Gender
Following the wedding, Ant and his wife with the rest of their family traveled to Bora Bora for a honeymoon. Both he and Christina extensively chronicled the trip on their respective social media.
Then in March 2019, the duo announced that they were expecting their first child - due in September 2019 - together. Sharing an image of her holding a sonogram, Christina revealed that their kids were happy about welcoming a sibling.

Cassie Zebisch, Christina's publicist, confirmed the baby's gender as a boy in an interview with PEOPLE in April 2019. Ironically, it was Tarek El Moussa, who accidentally slipped the information while talking to TMZ.
Back in 2015, Ant's girlfriend-turned-wife revealed about her struggles with infertility issues. Before giving birth to her son Brynden, she suffered a miscarriage.
