Love Of Cars star Ant Anstead marries girlfriend Christina El Moussa in secret US wedding – 12 months after they started dating

The Love Of Cars host, 38, and the US TV star, 35, said “I do” in a surprise wedding in California, which stunned their close friends and extended family.

Ant divorced his wife of 12 years, Louise, in October 2017 and went on to fall head over heels for Christina.

The ceremony was a surprise for many of their guests, who believed they were going to Ant and Christina’s home to watch the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade.

Instead they watched Ant and Christina tie the knot.

Speaking to People Magazine, Ant said having his two children, Amelie, 15, and son Archie, 12, from his marriage to Louise there beside him made the day more special.

Christina’s children, daughter Taylor, eight, and three-year-old son Brayden from her marriage to Tarek El Moussa were also there.

He explained: “We wanted to make it about the kids.

“It's the six of us. We’re a blended family so it was really important for them to be a part of it.”

Ant is best known for his work on the Channel 4 motor show with actor Philip Glenister as well as his role on Discovery Channel show Wheeler Dealers.

Ant had been in the running to take on a role on Top Gear after his mate James May departed along with fellow hosts Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond.

After a 12-week audition process,  Ant was within touching distance of the job until he wrote-off a Merc in  a screen test at Surrey’s Dunsfold Aerodrome.

He said: “I  was asked to take around the track an AMG C63 Mercedes estate.

“This is a brand-new car worth around £85,000. It’s fantastic — very fast and everything you want in a car.

“Unfortunately I fluffed it and got it a bit wrong.

“I came off the track and the car hit the tyre wall full on the side.”

Afterwards he admitted he had to “wallow some pride” after the mishap.
