“Flip or Flop’s” Tarek and Christina El Moussa Open Up About Life and Work Post-Divorce [Watch]


In their first joint interview since filing for divorce in 2017, Flip or Flop stars Christina and Tarek El Moussa discussed life without one another— and while Tarek currently isn’t currently dating anyone, Christina is getting serious with boyfriend of one year Ant Anstead.

“Yeah, he’s great,” Tarek told Today show’s Natalie Morales of Anstead, who is best known as a British TV host and avid car enthusiast.  “He seems like a good guy. My kids seem to like him.”

Granted, after being together both professionally and personally for so long, it’s no surprise that these two are still getting used to life without one another. But they do remain committed to two things – their kids and their much-loved HGTV show.

“We shot the pilot (for ‘Flip or Flop’) in summer of ’11, series of ’12 — so we’ve been doing this a really long time,” Tarek says. “It’s part of who we are and what we do, and for us to just throw it all away just wasn’t worth it. Most importantly, we have two amazing kids together. So it’s just easier to work together and get along.”

Christina and Tarek share custody of 8-year-old daughter, Taylor, and their 3-year-old son, Brayden.
