According to Christina Anstead, a great way to welcome a baby is to stay relaxed! The 36-year-old took to her Instagram Story on Monday, September 2, to post a photo of herself rockin’ a black bikini in the pool, and she looks great. She tagged her husband, Ant Anstead, on the picture, possibly crediting him for taking the awesome shot.

On August 30, the Christina on the Coast star shared a baby bump pic and revealed she is planning to welcome baby No. 3 on Friday, September 6. She also added that she scheduled a C-section because of her past experience with her second child, 3-year-old Brayden, whom she shares with ex-husband, Tarek El Moussa.

“Well … Here we go @ant_anstead … our world is about to get rocked — in all the best ways, of course,” she captioned the post. “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.”

Though the Flip or Flop star isn’t exactly ecstatic about having a C-section, she feels that this is what’s best for her and the baby. “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,” she added. “Based on ultrasound measurements, we think this is going to be another big boy so this is the direction we’ve decided to take.”

When it comes to the final touches of prepping for her baby boy, the blonde beauty is set. “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,” she concluded her post at the time. We wish her the best delivery possible!
