Ant Anstead Finally Speaks Out About His Divorce from Christina Anstead; Says He Was “Holding Onto Hope” She Would Change Her Mind About Breaking Up

“I was hoping you would keep your mouth shut.” “Fat chance!”

Ant Anstead has broken his silence about his impending divorce, over a week after his wife Christina Anstead announced to her Instagram followers that the couple was splitting. According to Ant, it was not a mutual decision to breakup. 

Although the Flip or Flop star had posted about how surprised she was about the split, Ant had yet to comment…until Saturday, when he posted a message to Instagram implying that it is Christina who is seeking the divorce, and that he had been holding out hope that she would change her mind. 

“Anyone who really knows me knows that I don’t like to share private matters publicly,” Ant captioned a photo of him and Christina posted to Instagram. “I have remained silent while holding on to hope. I never gave up on us. I pray Christina’s decision brings her happiness.”

Ant received plenty of supportive comments on his post.

“If someone can give up on a marriage that easily with children involved in my eyes isn’t worth the tears,” one person wrote.

“Everyone knows this isn’t you!” another person commented. “This is her being screwed up. Move on and you take care of you..this will save you years of being miserable with her eventually. Be glad it happened this way.”

Christina and Ant’s marriage lasted less than two years. They 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. Eagle-eyed followers also noticed that, around the time Christina announced the split, she had been deleting Ant’s kind comments from her posts.

On Saturday, Christina wrote on Instagram that she is shocked that she has ended up twice-divorced with two baby daddies. (She shares two children with her ex-husband and ‘Flip or Flop’ co-star Tarek El Moussa.)

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. ✨♥️

  1. Oh f*ck off Christina you love being on Tv and in the press… you milked your last divorce for headlines for friggin ever.

  2. Cant stand her, never will. I feel she is a bubblehead who craves and needs attention. She has no remorse for the things she does to others and is very, very materialistic. She is probably excited for the money she will receive from Ant in thr divorce not to mention child suppprt. To me she is just looking out for numero uno. No matter the effect on her children during these continuous changes. Thank god they habe a stable parent in Tarek.

    It appears that Christina has issues.. possible postpartum. After two babies 2 divorces?? She really may need help. You just don’t walk away from a marriage because you want to feel something. It is sad that people closesests to her aren’t stepping in to really help.

    None of us know what happened w/ Christina & Ant, yet their admitted “surprise” baby changed their dynamics. C. said she has autoimmune disorders, adding to her fatigue. They both took on a LOT; esp. C. w/ an infant! She said they had almost no alone time anymore. Surprised they didn’t get a nanny. I like them both immensely. C. seems she needs a more established guy, who doesn’t have the career/family time conflict crunch. Their successes are challenging w/ so many kids. Maybe hiring help was a source of friction? They could afford it & reduce their stress levels. I think her medical condition affects her in more ways than she publicly discusses; quite understandable. They need some things To be private. Mom guilt is real.

    I am sickened by the way mrs. Anstead only thinks about herself. Back when she divorced tarek I thought have they talked to a minister. Are they bringing up their children in a Christian home? All the children involved in her marriages will likely need counseling to deal to deal with insecurities brought on by her. I am glad tarek is moving on and continuing to be dad to his two children. I still wish tarek and Christina would have faced her issues and kept their family together. Just another heart breaking story of a marriage that ultimately affects those precious children.

    Christina just go back to Tarek and fix your original family. Thats where you truly belong.Hurry before Tarek ties the knot with Heather! You and Tarek Tay Tay
    and Brayden belong together as a family.
    Just Do It!!

  7. Ant is a great guy and she probably didn’t even realize that. Whatever happened, it’s for the best. Let’s just hope she will let him see their son. Take time to heal, the right woman will cross your path, man.

  8. I thought it was very telling that her “friend” said Christina was disappointed to be divorcing “so soon”. I’ve never been married but going into a marriage with the expectation of getting divorced doesn’t seem like a great plan.

    Ant left Christina to go spent a month in the UK when she begged for his help. She was maxed out with responsibility. He totally abandoned her. He had no loyalty to Christina . Shame on him.

  10. I’m sorry about their split. Christina maybe you are going through post partum depression but working too hard to forget or admit you need professional help. You’re not superwoman. It’s hard being a mom and working hard. And need to share your love be supportive help with the family if you already haven’t been. You 2.. marriage isnt 50/50, sometimes its 90/10. Communication is the biggest factor next to love and respect for one another. You need to remember brought you 2 together to get married and work on staying together through therapy. If my husband believed in that theory and we tried avenues maybe we’d be together today. Christina and Ant. You 2 are basically still newlyweds.The photos of you 2 look like a couple and family very much in love.
