Television personality Christina Anstead admits that she is expecting quite a big delivery in the coming weeks. As a matter of fact, the HGTV star, who is expecting her third child, says that she plans on having a C-section. That’s because she and her husband Ant Anstead will be welcoming a very big boy!
According to People Magazine, the 36-year-old celebrity mother announced on her Instagram account that she’s got one week to go until she finally gives birth. This will be her first child with Ant Anstead, but her third overall. She has two children with her ex-husband Tarek El Moussa: Taylor, 9, and Brayden James, 4.

Well.... Here we go @ant_anstead ... our world is about to get rocked - in all the best ways of course. 👶🏻 One week until my scheduled c-section. I chose to do this because I had an emergency c-section with Brayden and the whole experience and recovery was really hard on me physically and emotionally. I really don’t feel comfortable trying to go down that route again. Bray was 8lbs 13oz - after pushing for hours and hours - he was just stuck and his heart rate was dropping. Based on ultrasound measurements we think this is going to be another big boy so this is the direction we’ve decided to take. The nursery is ready, the kids are back in school, I’m not sleeping, irritable and uncomfortable. I’m definitely ready to be done and to meet our little man. One week countdown 🙌🏼🎉
Sharing a new photo of her growing baby bump Christina told her social media followers that their family’s world is about to get rocked, but in the best way possible, of course. She also said that the countdown is on as it will be just one week until her scheduled c-section.
Christina also said because her son Brayden James was a big baby, doctors decided to do an emergency c-section with him after her labor was hard on her, both physically and emotionally. Brayden weighed in at 8lbs and 13oz when he was born. Knowing what her personal limits are, Christina explained that she doesn’t want to “go down that route” again.
Christina also said that even though this is the last week of her pregnancy, she hasn’t been feeling her best. In other words, she just wants to get this all over with, which is the same feeling many other moms have during the last stretch of their pregnancies. The blonde beauty also wrote in her Instagram post, “Based on ultrasound measurements we think this is going to be another big boy so this is the direction we’ve decided to take. The nursery is ready, the kids are back in school, I’m not sleeping, irritable and uncomfortable. I’m definitely ready to be done and to meet our little man.”
With that said, Christina also revealed that she and Ant only started thinking of baby boy names a few weeks ago. Seeing how she has been documenting most of her pregnancy on social media, there’s a good chance that she will continue to post pics and updates of her baby boy once he arrives. Christina has not made any comments on whether or not she plans on having even more children in the future.
