Words of wisdom! Christina Haack has opened up about motherhood time and time again, whether she’s gushing about her blended family or sharing tips on coparenting.
The Flip or Flop alum married Tarek El Moussa in 2009, and the couple welcomed two kids together. Taylor arrived in 2010, followed by Brayden in 2015. Although the reality stars separated in May 2016 and finalized their divorce in January 2018, they continued to film their HGTV show together.
“We’ve been doing this a really long time — it’s part of who we are and what we do,” El Moussa said on the Today show in December 2018. “And for us to just throw everything away … it just wasn’t worth it. And at the same time, we love the crew, we love the show, we love our fans and we love the network.”
In 2017, the Christina on the Coast star started dating Ant Anstead, a British television host with two kids of his own. The Wheelers Dealers star welcomed Amelie in 2003 and Archie in 2006 with his ex-wife, Louise Anstead.
He and Haack tied the knot with a surprise wedding in January 2019, blending their families — and it wasn’t long before the newlyweds conceived their first child together.
“@ant_anstead and I are so excited to announce #babyanstead coming this September!!” the then-pregnant star captioned her Instagram reveal in March 2019. “The kids are all so excited to meet their new sibling. #5 #Gonnaneedabiggercar.”
She cuddled up to Ant in the announcement photo, holding out an ultrasound pic. Her husband used the same sonogram shot, although he placed it next to selfies of Amelie, Archie, Taylor and Brayden. “And then…… there were FIVE!!!” he wrote on Instagram at the time. “(Well …. four and a half! Will be Five in September)!!”
The duo, who called it quits after Hudson’s September 2019 arrival and finalized their divorce in June 2021, have been open about their coparenting relationship over the years.
