Christina Anstead Gets Candid About Going Through Two Divorces & Having 'Two Baby Daddies'

Christina Anstead is getting candid with her fans about what’s going on in her life and how she never thought she “would have one divorce let alone two.”

The 37-year-old HGTV star announced the end of her marriage to Ant Anstead last week.

Christina was previously married to her Flip or Flop co-star Tarek El Moussa and they share two children together. After her split from Tarek, she married Ant in 2018 and they welcomed a son together last year.

“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,” Christina began a lengthy Instagram post on Saturday (September 26).

“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,” Christina continued. “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,” Christina said. “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,” Christina said. “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.”

Christina ended the letter by mentioning that she hasn’t been able to respond to the people reaching out to her.

“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,” she wrote.

After the divorce news, Christina was spotted back at work with one of her exes.
