Christina Haack & Ex Ant Anstead Finalize Divorce Nine Months After Calling It Quits, Set Custody Arrangement For Son
Reality TV stars Christina Haack (née Anstead) and Ant Anstead have reportedly finalized their divorce nine months after the two called it quits.
The Christina on the Coast star and Anstead have both been granted joint legal and physical custody of their 21-month-old son, Hudson, TMZ reported. A source spilled to the outlet that no money will be exchanged moving forward as the former flames have “privately hashed out who gets what assets and property.”
The divorced duo met in 2017, tied the knot in 2018 and welcomed their son in September 2019. Haack was previously married to her Flip or Flop costar, Tarek El Moussa, whom she shares Taylor and Brayden with, while Anstead has two kids from his previous marriage — Amelie and Archie.
In September 2020, the mom-of-three revealed she was no longer with the Wheeler Dealers co-host. "Ant and I have made the difficult decision to separate," she captioned a photo of the duo on the beach. "We are grateful for each other and as always, our children will remain our priority. We appreciate your support and ask for privacy for us and our family as we navigate the future."
Apparently, the couple "started having conflicts" after Hudson was born, a source spilled at the time. “Christina found it difficult to balance everything,” the insider said, adding that "their marriage was struggling." At the end of the day, Christina was "lonely and unhappy" in her relationship, which caused her to pull the plug
"She never expected to get a divorce," the insider shared. "But she is doing OK and focusing on the kids."
As OK! previously reported, following the news of his divorce, Anstead was in a "very dark place," and fans were concerned when he looked visibly thinner in October, but he promised he would put the weight back on. “I reached this turning point... I had the choice to dwell on it, or move on and work on myself," he explained.
The reality TV hunk then signed up for a 35-day online "breakup recovery" course in addition to a three-day faith-based retreat to focus on his mental and physical health. Both of the courses helped him to understand that "nobody controls me but me. It’s up to me to empower myself and realize how incredibly worthy I am of healing."
