Christina Anstead switches back to her maiden name Haack on Instagram amid divorce from Ant Anstead – Daily Mail

She announced her separation from the English television presenter Ant Anstead in September.

And now Christina Anstead has updated her Instagram account to revert to her maiden name, Haack.

Although the 37-year-old Flip Or Flop star is now listed on the social media platform as Christina Haack, she appears to be holding onto her @christinaanstead handle, at least for the time being.

Christina’s relationship with Ant, 41, began in late 2017, and they surprised their fans with a secret backyard wedding at their Newport Beach home in December 2018.

After marrying, she changed her last name from El Moussa to Anstead and began using the new name publicly and on her television series.

Less than a year into their marriage, Christina and Ant welcomed a son named Hudson, one.

However, the cracks began to appear in their relationship shortly after they became new parents, and they announced their separation a little over a year after Hudson’s birth.

At the time, a source told People that the marriage began to sour after the baby arrived.

‘After the baby, they started having conflicts,’ they said, and the HGTV star reportedly felt ‘lonely and unhappy’ while at home caring for her children.

‘Christina found it difficult to balance everything,’ they added.

After announcing the separation but before filing for divorce, Christina opened up on Instagram about her shattered relationship.

‘I never thought I would have 2 baby daddies — but sometimes life throws us curveballs,’ she wrote in September.

Despite the ‘setbacks,’ she stayed optimistic and said she would ‘choose to use look at these challenges as opportunities to grow.’

Earlier this month, Christina shared a photo of an inspirational tattoo she got inked on her spine amid the divorce.

‘Still I rise,’ it read in cursive, copying the title of a Maya Angelou poem, from her third collection And Still I Rise.

Christina also quoted a portion of the poem in her caption.

In addition to her youngest son, Christina also shares daughter Taylor, 10, and son Braydon, five, with her ex-husband Tarek El Moussa, whom she was married to until 2018.

Earlier this month, he told Us Weekly that the couple were doing well raising their shared children.

‘We’re coparenting, we’re filming [Flip or Flop], we’re business partners, so things are going better than they’ve been in a long time.’

Tarek, who got engaged to Selling Sunset star Heather Rae Young in July, said things were better than ever on Flip Or Flop with his ex-wife.

‘The onscreen chemistry shows and I think this season’s episodes are some of the best we’ve ever done. Who would have thought 10 years later the show is getting better?’
