‘Flip or Flop’ Star Christina Anstead Opens Up About Her Divorce From Ant Anstead: “I Never Thought I’d Have One Divorce Let Alone Two”

“I’m starting to feel like one of those Teen Mom girls with all these baby daddies!”

Fans were shocked when Christina Anstead announced last week that she and her second husband Ant are splitting up, and it appears that the Flip or Flop star was just as surprised by the divorce as her fans were.

In a new message posted to Instagram on Saturday, Christina opened up about the divorce, as well as how she feels about having had children with two different men. (She shares son Hudson with Ant, and two children with her first husband and ‘Flip or Flop’ co-star Tarek El Moussa.)

“I never thought I would have one divorce let alone two,” Christina wrote. “I never thought I would have two baby daddies– but sometimes life throws us curve balls.”

She then addressed those who have been gossiping about her since she announced the split.

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 and Ant got married in December 2018 and welcomed their son Hudson in September 2019. Since announcing the split last week, Christina has deleted all of the photos of her wedding to Ant from her Instagram account. (Christina’s photos still remained on Ant’s Instagram at press time.)

Ant has yet to publicly comment on the separation.

Tarek— who became engaged to his girlfriend, Selling Sunset star Heather Rae Young , in July– has also not yet commented publicly on Christina’s split with Ant.

    Yes I definitely smell a book coming. She should have never married that man so quickly after her divorce from Tarek. I think she got pregnant and she didn’t want to have her son without being married first. But either way Ant was the rebound guy. You never marry the rebound guy….just sayin

    It is Christina’s life, no one else’s. If you aren’t in the mix, you do not know anything,, you guess and speculate, but do not KNOW, so leave them alone to handle their business, since it is not any of ours to decide in the first place.


  4. I have never been a fan of hers and had never heard of him til this ‘romance’ but WTH—they are split up for a week or 10 days after being married for a very brief amount of time, but each of them feels the need to open up about the divorce. Why do they think anybody, but their innermost circle cares about this?

    I enjoy all of your shows and yes take your time to feel better and take care of your kids


  6. Ant did address it. He still holds hope they will get back together which means this wasn’t a mutual decision. I wonder what happened. Anyway, I hope they get along for the sake of Hudson.

    And am I the only one who finds it immature that she deleted all photos of their wedding?! Did she delete them on her file too? Why do they always do that? It’s not like that will erase people from your memory faster.


  7. Meh. You’re in Hollywood. We measure your marriages in months. It’s nothing new, it’s nothing personal, it’s just the way it is.


  8. I really don’t understand how celebrities get married and have a baby with someone they have been with for only a year, especially if they started dating that person fresh off their first divorce, and then are like “I never expected to get divorced”. Like idk, maybe wait longer than a year to get married and have kids?


  9. Wow, Instead of staying too long in something not working shes brave and strong it sounds like. Jenelle should read her book if she writes one.
