Christina Hall shares a snap of son Hudson, two, amid custody battle with ex-husband Ant Anstead


Christina Hall took to her Instagram Story to share videos and a snap of her two-year-old son Hudson, whom she shares with ex-husband Ant Anstead.

On Tuesday, the 38-year-old HGTV star posted an image of Hudson, who was seen beaming with his arms outstretched, and wrote, ‘Days off consist of haircuts, Costco runs and trying to find everything we packed for this rental home.’

Christina’s update comes after Ant, 43, filed documents seeking full custody of Hudson, accusing Hall of neglecting him and using him as a social media prop.

In the photo shared by Christina, Hudson was clad in denim shorts and a beige graphic t-shirt after getting a haircut.

Earlier in the day, the television personality posted a video of her youngest child as he was getting his haircut.

Hudson donned a dark blue cape as he sat in a fire engine barber chair while a stylist cut his light blonde hair.

‘Fresh cut’, the Christina on the Coast host wrote on the clip, adding a scissors emoji.

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

On Sunday, Christina shared a video of Hudson in which he was seen playing with his siblings.

The trio were seen shooting hoops as they played with a double basketball arcade game in a rec room.

‘First night in the temporary rental house,’ Christina wrote on the video, which was set to DJ Khaled’s hit song All I Do Is Win.

The Flip or Flop alum added a red heart emoji and tagged her husband Josh Hall, whom she married last month.

Last week, Christina hit back at Anstead after he suggested she was an unfit mother in court documents as part of his bid to secure primary custody, according to her response filing.

Through her legal team called Ant’s claims that she put their two-year-old son Hudson at risk and was wholly absent in his life ‘false allegations’ that ‘shocked’ Christina, People reported last Friday. 

Last Thursday, Ant filed to modify the couple’s shared custody agreement but that same day a judge denied his bid. He will still have the chance to make a case for temporary custody during a hearing in late June.

Fighting it out: Last week, Christina hit back at Anstead after he suggested she was an unfit mother in court documents as part of his bid to secure primary custody, according to her response filing.

‘Mr. Anstead has now taken the position that he is the defacto primary parent of our son, which is not accurate. Anstead does not count any day wherein we exchange our son as a custodial day for me. He also counts days where I made an accommodation or gave a right of first refusal to him as his day,’ Hall wrote in her response.

‘That is why there is a huge discrepancy in his mind from our accurate schedule. His attempt to mislead the court is transparent when presented with the true facts,’ she continued.

Christina appears to be responding to her ex’s declaration that she is largely absent, only seeing Hudson for ‘9 full days each month’ and using him as nothing more than a social media prop when she does have him.

‘I do not count my accommodations as decreasing my custodial time, but as me being a supportive coparent,’ Hall said. 

'Mr. Anstead has now taken the position that he is the defacto primary parent of our son, which is not accurate. Anstead does not count any day wherein we exchange our son as a custodial day for me. He also counts days where I made an accommodation or gave a right of first refusal to him as his day,' Hall wrote in her response

He also counts days where I made an accommodation or gave a right of first refusal to him as his day,’ Hall wrote in her response 

The reality star also shared what she claimed was their recent schedule with Hudson: ‘January 2022: I had a travel commitment and so Ant exercised a right of first refusal. I had 13 days instead of equal time because Ant requested to watch Hudson. February 2022: I agreed to Ant’s request for right of first refusal and had a total of 11 days instead of 14.’

Hall goes on to accuse Ant of taking their son on vacation to Hawaii without first informing her.  

Her response comes following Anstead’s explosive filing accusing Christina of using their son for social media clout, risking his medical safety and giving his girlfriend, Renee Zellweger, COVID after Christina failed to disclose that her family contracted the virus, TMZ reported. 

The move marks a significant departure from their seemingly amicable split and shared goal of peaceful co-parenting, after saying in their 2020 breakup announcement that ‘our children will remain our priority’.   

Ant Anstead did not hold back in his court filing and claims Christina put their toddler at risk, sending him home with ‘an awful sunburn that was so bad it left him crying in pain,’ TMZ reported.

The Wheeler Dealers star goes on in the docs to explain that when he text the reality star about the burn she brushed him off responding:  ‘It didn’t feel hot. Give him some Tylenol im sure it will be better tomorrow.’

In another explosive part, Ant says that Christina failed to inform him that her family had gotten COVID and returned Hudson to his care without proper precautions. The move ended up shutting down production on Renee Zellweger, Ant’s girlfriend’s, latest film. 

‘At the time my partner was filming her new project and her covid diagnosis placed the whole production on pause,’ he wrote.

The father of three is requesting that a family court judge modify their current shared custody agreement to give him full custody of Hudson with Christina getting the toddler every other weekend.

His request also included a caveat that Hall stop using Hudson in paid posts or projects unless he expressly consents.   

To underscore his opinion that Christina is unfit to share custody of their son, Ant reportedly raised concerns in the documents about the real estate investor’s use of hallucinogenic toad venom. 

Last year, Christina went public with her experience getting high off a psychedelic toad how it helped her ‘reset’ her brain before meeting new boyfriend Hall.

‘I met Josh when I wasn’t in a state of fear or fight-or-flight,’ she said in a social media post. 

Her journey included taking ‘time off social,’ and hiring a ‘spiritual coach,’ as well as smoking a psychedelic substance drawn from ‘Bufo toad,’ which she said ‘basically reset my brain and kicked out years of anxiety in 15 mins.’

‘Bufo toad,’ commonly known as Colorado river toad or the Sonoran desert toad, secretes a powerful venom which can be harvested and smoked to achieve a high.

The effects include a ‘warm sensation, euphoria, and strong visual and auditory hallucinations,’ that are said to be similar to the effects of ayahuasca, a brew used in South American spiritual practice.

Christina hit back in a statement to TMZ defending herself and her parenting skills: ‘What Ant is doing deeply saddens me. If this was really about Hudson, as he says, this should have been handled privately with a private judge or mediation, as myself and my attorney have suggested. 

‘I have had my share of ups and downs but I am a good mom and I love my children with all my heart and I will always protect them.’ 

Anstead’s custody moves comes shortly after Christina’s surprise and secret wedding to her third husband, Josh.

She and Ant share one child together, Hudson, whom they welcomed less than a year after tying the knot.

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

The HGTV star announced the end of her second marriage to Anstead on Instagram in 2020 writing: ‘Ant and I have made the difficult decision to separate. We are grateful for each other and as always, our children will remain our priority.

‘We appreciate your support and ask for privacy for us and our family as we navigate the future,’ Christina concluded.
