Flip or Flop?
How about neither? How about… celebrate!
Christina Anstead and her husband, Ant, now have a reason to be doing exactly that, as they just welcomed their first child into the universe together.
“Ant and I are so excited to welcome Hudson London Anstead into the world,” Christina wrote today on Instagram, adding in further detail:
“Our hearts are SO full of love and joy! Our healthy baby boy was born this morning- 9/6/19 – 7 lbs 7 oz 19.5 inches long.”
Added the very excited new father:
“Welcome to the world! Hudson London Anstead I am in awe! Mummy and baby are simply perfect!”
Here is our very first look at the precious newborn and his parents:
The baby boy is the couple’s first child as a, well, couple.
Christina, who still hosts an HGTV show with her ex-husband, shares son Brayden James, 4, and daughter Taylor Reese, 9 this month, with Tarek El Moussa.
Ant is also a father to son Archie, 13, and daughter Amelie, 16 this month, with his ex Louise.
That’s quite the large and busy household!
Christina and Ant got married in December of 2018.
They confirmed that they had a little one on the way three months later.
“@ant_anstead and I are so excited to announce #babyanstead coming this September,” the California native wrote alongside a PDA pic on Instagram in March, adding:
“The kids are all so excited to meet their new sibling #5 #Gonnaneedabiggercar.”
Christina and Tarek seemed like the perfect couple for years as the hosts of Flip or Flop.
However, they announced their separation in December of 2016 after a bizarre incident in which the stars got into an argument and then Christina called the cops because Tarek went into the woods with a gun.
The situation was eventually resolved (Tarek said he was simply afraid of wild animals) and the pair eventually finalized their divorce.
Ever since, Christina and Tarek have been very respectful of each other in public, never insulting the other one and always emphasizing that their children came first.
And now Christina has a third child to prioritize.
“It’s so amazing that we get to raise a child together,” she told People Magazine earlier this summer.
“All of the kids are so excited. I love all the fun chaos and a full house. I always thought I would only have two, and now I’ll have five!
For his part, El Moussa actually spilled the baby beans again on Thursday, September 5, when he told Us Weekly his ex-wife’s due date:
“She’s having the baby tomorrow, so I’m excited for her. Tomorrow my children are going to have a new brother. It’s all one big family!”
How mature and responsible, right?
Congrats to the parents!
