Ant Anstead, Christina Haack Parenting Digs Continue

Anstead, 43 years old, responded via Instagram Tuesday to a hater after they accused her of threatening the Dealers or wheelersHudson, his 38-year-old son, is being used by Hall as a host for questionable purposes.

“Absolutely I don’t,” the England native responded at the time. “Being a kid and capturing organic moments in the footsteps of a toddler I’m all in favour of! It’s a lovely diary to keep and look back on. But being a puppet “used” for commercial gain and being made to perform makes my stomach sick. The two are of course very different x x,” he added, possibly alluding to Hall’s frequent Instagram posts of Hudson, 2.

This comment comes less than one month after Hudson was granted full custody by the TV personality. Anstead, who was married the Flip or Flop alum for two years before they split in September 2020, stated that Hall had not created a safe environment for their son after she used him for “paid advertisements to sell products” during a March 2022 stay. (Anstead also shares daughter Amelie, and son Archie, with ex-wife Louise StoreyHall shares Taylor and Brayden while Hall is with her ex-husband Tarek El Moussa.)

“I [ask to] be awarded sole legal custody of Hudson, or, in the alternative, for an order restraining both Christina (and me), from using Hudson or Hudson’s likeness or image in any commercial endeavor, social media paid promotion, television or streaming program, or which might otherwise commodify Hudson without the express advanced written consent of both parents in writing,” the Celebrity IOU JoyrideHost asked in a court order dated April 28.

Hall immediately responded to the Orange County court the next day. “I have read the declaration of Mr. Anstead and was shocked to see the false allegations against me,” she stated in court documents obtained by Us WeeklyAt the time. “And his belief that he has been failing to protect our son by sharing custodial time with me.”

The California native also exclusively spoke in California Us in a statement that she was “deeply saddened by the situation” and “I am a good mom and I love my children with all my heart.”

Us confirmed that Anstead’s request for custody was denied after the court ruled he had provided an “insufficient showing” of evidence in his filing. The judge also stated that Hall wasn’t given enough notice about the request, per court documents. Before their next hearing is scheduled for June 28, the pair must meet with a mediator to resolve their disputes.

Anstead moved on with actress after their split. Renée Zellweger, while Usconfirmed that the HGTV host is married Joshua Hall in a quiet ceremony last month.
