"Sometimes our calling is bigger than our plan," she wrote on September 26. "I never thought I would have one divorce let alone two. I never thought I would have 2 baby daddies — but sometimes life throws us curve balls. Instead of getting stuck in these ‘setbacks’, I choose to look at these challenges as opportunities to grow. So while some may judge me and throw around rumors about me, most of you support me. And that says a lot about this world and where we are headed. I’m messy, I’m real and I’m working on healing. I’m surrounded by extremely powerful women who help me cope, build me up and push me to be better."

That same day, Ant revealed where he stood with his estranged wife. "Anyone who really knows me knows that I don’t like to share private matters publicly," the U.K. native captioned a black-and-white selfie with Christina. "I have remained silent while holding on to hope. I never gave up on us. I pray Christina’s decision brings her happiness."
