Christina El Moussa is adding a new family member into the mix, an adorable puppy, after estranged husband Ant Anstead opened up about being in a ‘dark place’ following their divorce.
The ‘Flip Or Flop’ star revealed the precious photos of the new Rottweiler puppy, Biggie, on Instagram, along with a video of their new pet getting to know its fur brother after arriving home.
As we reported, the new puppy comes on the heels of Christina’s ex-husband opening up about how tough the split has been on his physical and mental health.

“Too cute not to share. Meet the newest member of our family – Biggie. We are all obsessed and in love. ?,” Anstead captioned the cute photos.
We are guessing the name is in tribute to the legendary New York rapper. As you can imagine, the reality star’s IG was flooded with reactions to the new pet, including, “He is absolutely adorable! My family has only ever had Rottweilers. Great choice! ?” and “A toddler and a puppy! You are brave! Potty training two! ?.”
But, several fans voiced their concern about purchasing a new puppy instead of rescuing one.
“I hope it’s a rescue or a shelter dog. There are enough dogs who need homes esp. Rotties,” a concerned fan wrote.
Another added, “Although I love all pets, I wish celebrities would use their platform to adopt more. Many pets are relinquished on holidays- and often don’t get homes. Cheers to all those that adopt.”
“Ugh Christina no! ADOPT DON’T SHOP,” one message read.
The good news, it appears the dog is already getting along with the family’s other pet French Bulldog, Cash. Also, Christina included a photo of Biggie’s GIANT father — Nitro!

It’s interesting timing, considering the reality star’s estranged husband just opened up about the terrible time he is having after the split.
Ant Anstead recently described the details surrounding his mental state after the breakup, saying “It really hit me hard. The impact on me, my sleep, my diet, my stress, it showed.” In the interview, Anstead revealed he has lost over 20lbs following the split, and had attended a three-day ‘faith-based’ retreat to work on his physical health.
The ‘Wheeler Dealers’ star explained he was in “a very dark place” following the divorce.
It appears the ‘Christina On The Coast’ star is moving on in her life, and the first step is welcoming the newest family member in to the fold!
