UPI News Service, 11/02/2019
Christina Anstead has reminisced about her early romance with her husband, Ant Anstead.
The 36-year-old "Flip or Flop" and "Christina on the Coast" star shared details about her relationship with Ant Anstead in an Instagram post Tuesday on their two-year anniversary as a couple.
Anstead said she was attending a wellness retreat in October 2017 when she asked her friend Clayton Jennings to pray for her.
Jennings prayed for Anstead to find a loving and respectful man.
"The next day I woke up with a text from a friend of ours named Walter who had just met Ant and thought we were the perfect fit. 2 kids, similar career, just gone through a divorce and he was a really NICE guy," Anstead recalled.
"Seemed too good to be true, but the timing of the Clayton call seemed like Fate was dealing me a lucky hand."
Anstead said Ant Anstead first called her Oct. 29, 2017, and took her on their first date just days later.
"We have literally been inseparable ever since," the star said.
