Now she's tied the knot with British TV host Anstead, 39, in a wedding first reported by PEOPLE, that took place just a few days before Christmas.

PEOPLE reported that 70 guests met at their home for what they believed to be an outing on charter buses to the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade. But instead of watching a boat parade of lights, the guests witnessed El Moussa and Anstead say "I do's" in front of an altar in their front yard.

Christina glowed in a form-fitting mermaid-style white wedding gown, with a lace design featuring a low-back with buttons and detachable sleeves. It was designed by Ines Di Santo. The reception reportedly was arranged in a Maestro's Steakhouse theme to please the bride.

All of Christina and Anstead's children cheered them on as they prepare to have a blended family. Christina and her ex Tarek share kids Taylor El Moussa, 8, and Brayden El Moussa, 3, while Anstead has two children from a previous marriage: Amelie Anstead, 15, and Archie Anstead, 12. The two have been dating since 2017 and have displayed major PDA!

As Radar readers know, Christina and Tarek secretly split up in May 2016 but didn't tell their fans the shocking news until that December. In January 2017, Tarek officially filed for divorce. Sources previously told Radar that Christina and the TV presenter from England were in a trial marriage after her divorce from Tarek. Anstead has written on social media, "@christinaelmoussa is a proper travel buddy! With an amazing sense of humour and gets my British sarcasm (also rare)."

HGTV star Christina raved to E! about her beloved this year, "He's just really lifted me up in so many ways." She told PEOPLE she's officially changing her last name to her new husband’s. "It has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? Christina Anstead. We couldn’t be any happier!"

Christina and Anstead have sparked rumors that they might be working on their own television show together, as Radar reported earlier this month.

After Christina's wedding, a source told Us Weekly, "Tarek is happy for Christina and he’s moved on. But still cares about her deeply."
