Christina Haack & Ant Anstead Celebrate Son’s Birthday Amid Custody Battle

Christina Haack and Ant Anstead both took to social media to celebrate son Hudson’s 3rd birthday. The exes are embroiled in a messy custody battle.

Amid their ongoing custody drama, Ant Anstead and Flip or Flop‘s Christina Hall are celebrating their son Hudson’s 3rd birthday. After splitting in September 2020, the two finalized their divorce in June 2021. Christina has since remarried Josh Hall, while her ex-husband is dating actress Renee Zellweger.

Ant asked for full custody of Hudson in April of this year. The Christina On The Coast star was reportedly blindsided by this and defended her parenting skills in response. The court denied Ant’s request for full custody, but that wasn’t the end of the battle. Over the next month, the TV hosts only ramped up allegations against each other. But while the exes are still at odds, they both showed their son plenty of love for his 3rd birthday.

Both Ant and Christina posted Instagram tributes to Hudson on Tuesday. Christina, who shares two older children with ex-husband Tarek El Moussa, shared a number of sweet photos of her “SO smart, cute, and sweet” son. This included a pic from her recent second wedding to Josh Hall, where Hudson and older brother Brayden walked her down the aisle. The 39-year-old accompanied the photos by writing, “Hudson is super witty and knows how to be sarcastic and tell jokes. He impresses everyone with the way he communicates. I love our laughs and cuddles. He lights up our home and lives. We’ve been celebrating all week but can’t wait to make him feel extra special today.” Hudson’s father also posted a carousal of photos. Ant, who is friends with Tarek, began his tribute by expressing how fast three years with the “very special boy” have gone by.

The Celebrity IOU: Joyride host wrote, “it’s been an absolute privilege to have a front row seat to witness the overflowing joy and personality you are!” The UK native gushed over the bond he and “Hudzo” share. “Everyone who gets near you feels your love, cheekiness, [humor], playful energy and total and utter pure JOY,” the 43-year-old added.“You wear your heart on your sleeve. I know exactly what you are saying without saying a word!”

While both parents included lots of photos and praise, there was a noticeable absence. Neither Ant nor Christina included one another in their carousals or tributes. In his initial filing for sole custody, Hudson’s appearances on Christina’s Instagram was a point of contention for Ant. The Brit also slammed his ex-wife as an absentee mother.

This isn’t Christina’s only post-divorce drama. Before the series ended, Tarek infamously screamed at her on the Flip or Flop set. The California native also got into a public spat with Tarek’s current wife, Heather Rae Young. However, they all put on a happy face and later posted a blended family pic to Instagram. Time will tell if Christina and Ant ever do the same, or if the custody battle will only get uglier.
