With the recent premiere of a new season of Flip or Flop together, it's clear that Christina Anstead and Tarek El Moussa are pretty amicable exes. Now, Christina has revealed that her ex-husband Tarek El Moussa received a courtesy call prior to the reveal of her pregnancy with her new husband, Ant Anstead.

"I told him right before I told the kids," the Christina on the Coast star told Entertainment Tonight at her baby shower this past Sunday at Balboa Bay Resort in Newport Beach, California. "I waited after the first trimester to tell them to make sure everything was OK."

It's no secret that Christina and Tarek are in regular contact—they pretty much have to be, due to their ongoing series. The HGTV hit didn't stop filming after the couple's split in 2016, and Christina told ET that the pair were in a good place. "[We've] just been doing it for a few years now, and it's sort of normal, I guess," she revealed about co-parenting and filming. The two share two children together, Taylor and Brayden.

As for Christina's new man, Ant Anstead, she revealed that she truly can't get enough enough of him.

"It was immediate, that connection," Christina said. "I knew the second we drove to dinner together, we just had that spark, but [we're] also so comfortable together. [We feel like] we've known each other forever."

The two lovebirds are expecting a baby boy in just 10 weeks—and as for the baby's nursery? Christina says it's still incomplete, but it'll definitely match the dreamy and rustic decor of her baby shower. "My house is a chic boho vibe, so we're going with a lot of layered rugs and dream catchers, like what you see around here," Christina said at the celebration. "I'll probably be utilizing things that Cassie made, just a lot of greenery and plants and softened it up with some cute stuffed animals."

Whatever design Christina chooses, we're sure it'll be perfect for her new son—hopefully we'll get some peeks at it during the second season of Christina on The Coast!
