Christina Anstead has described the beginning of her relationship with her new husband, Ant Anstead, as basically love at first sight. The happily married duo is completely #CoupleGoals, and of course, Christina's BFFs think so, too. In an episode of Christina on The Coast: Unfiltered, Shannon Houston, the designer's best friend and makeup artist, told the hilarious story of the first time she actually met Ant.
As it turns out, Shannon was actually the first friend that met Christina's new husband—and Ant basically orchestrated the entire thing himself.
"[Christina] had met this guy and we were texting and I was like, 'How's it going, what're you guys doing?!'" Shannon explained. All of a sudden, Christina did something... very out of the ordinary. "I was like, 'Oh, me and my husband are going to dinner tonight at Mastro's. And she was like, 'We want to go! Want to go? Come over here right now!'."
Long story short, Christina basically had no idea Shannon and her husband were arriving at Ant's house—because it wasn't her who invited them!
"That was Ant texting you!" Christina said. "I didn't know Ant had my phone and he wanted to meet one of my friends, so when Shannon said she was going to Mastro's he was like, 'Oh perfect, we want to come! Here's my address.'"
Christina was definitely caught off guard when her friend arrived, but it ended up being perfect—Shannon was even able to blow dry her friend's hair for her for the occasion. The besties explained that it was such a fun night, even with all of the miscommunication—and of course, it all worked out in the end.
