Christina Anstead is opening up and getting real about her battle with anxiety in the aftermath of her split with her husband Ant Anstead. Their divorce was announced in a post on Instagram late last week after nearly two years of marriage. Only a year after the birth of their son, Hudson London Anstead, many were left wondering what exactly went wrong.
In a statement posted to her Instagram Christina wrote, “Ant and I have made the difficult decision to separate. We are grateful for each other, and as always, our children will remain our priority,” she continued, “We appreciate your support and ask for privacy for us and our family as we navigate the future.”
Ant and Christina had a surprise wedding at their home in Newport Beach, California, in December 2018. The couple welcomed their son Hudson a year ago which as any parents know, made things a lot more complicated and difficult.

For those of you who don’t know me (or think you know me) let me reintroduce myself. I hate crowds, I love traveling, all things spiritual, the ocean and deep one on one conversations. I never thought about being on tv. I wanted to be a sports agent like Jerry Maguire. But I always loved looking at houses with my parents especially model homes and I always wanted to be my own boss… So in college when I was called (intuitively) to get my real estate license at a local community college I followed my intuition. I got started in real estate at 21 which led to selling houses which led to flipping houses which led to Tv. Now while I never wanted to be on tv, stepping out of my comfort zone and into the unknown has always been my thing. I live in a state of anxiousness and I’m so used to it that when it’s not there I tend to feel a void and hop into something that causes the feeling I’m used to. This can be good and bad. And it’s one of the things I’m working on breaking the pattern of. Sometimes anxiety and pursuit of new dreams leads me down amazing paths, other times it leaves me feeling lost and in a state of fight or flight / or crying in my closet. Tv changed my life and I am grateful for the life it’s provided, the experiences, the friends I’ve made along the way. Sometimes our calling is bigger than our plans. 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. If you’ve DM me or text me – I haven’t written back because I’m taking time to clear the “noise” and focus on myself and the kids. I appreciate the support and I hope my story inspires you to not be so hard on yourself for the decisions / choices you’ve made. We are all a work in progress. ✨♥️
Christina began her latest Instagram post by re-introducing herself. “For those of you who don’t know me (or think you know me) let me reintroduce myself,” she wrote, “I hate crowds, I love traveling, all things spiritual, the ocean and deep, one-on-one conversations.” She explained that she never thought that she would be on TV, nor did she have the desire to.
“I live in a state of anxiousness, and I’m so used to it that when it’s not there I tend to feel a void and hop into something that causes the feeling I’m used to,” said the star, “This can be good and bad. And it’s one of the things I’m working on breaking the pattern of.”
Christina shares that she never thought she, “would have one divorce, let alone two” and that she, “would have 2 baby daddies.” She explains, however, that she is choosing to look at this as learning experience, “Sometimes life throws us curve balls. Instead of getting stuck in these ‘setbacks’ I choose to look at these challenges as opportunities to grow.”
“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,” she continued, “I hope my story inspires you to not be so hard on yourself for the decisions/choices you’ve made.” Her candid story is one I’m sure we can all relate to as we discover ourselves.
“We are all a work in progress,” finished Christina. So true! We wish her and her journey in healing the best.
