El Moussa and Young announced they were engaged this past July while vacationing on Catalina Island.
The couple initially bought their beach home in Orange County ‘as a flip but then they decided to make it their new home,’ the couple’s rep told People. ‘It’s their first project together! They have a lot they want to do with it and the house needs some work so they are going to continue to live in their current home until the new home is ready.’
Out and about: Christina was snapped late last year in Newport Beach, California
Anstead, of Wheeler Dealers fame, and Christina first began seeing one another in October of 2017 and share son Hudson, one.
‘Ant and I have made the difficult decision to separate,’ Christina said on Friday. ‘We are grateful for each other and as always, our children will remain our priority. We appreciate your support and ask for privacy for us and our family as we navigate the future.’
They exchanged vows at the home they shared in Newport Beach in December of 2018. Anstead is father to teen Amelie, 16, and Archie, 14, from this previous marriage to Louise Herbert.
