Christina Anstead of "Flip or Flop" is "back to bed rest," and she has posted a snuggly picture of herself and her newborn son, Hudson.
The real estate investor shared the intimate picture via her Instagram story recently. In the photo, Anstead, who wore a grey tank top, is seated on what looks to be a couch while cuddling up to little Hudson.

The one-month-old boy is cuteness overload swaddled in a white blanket while he laid sleeping enclosed in his mother's arms. The picture is taken by Anstead herself at a selfie vantage, and she gave a small smile looking straight at the camera.
Even though viewers can only see half of her face, it is obvious that it is bare of makeup. That and Anstead's choice of outfit, which also included simple accessories, show that the snap may have been taken in the confines of her home.

The heartwarming post is accompanied by a sweet statement from the "Flip or Flop" star who disclosed that baby Hudson has something in common with her. She wrote:
"Cuddle bug like his mummy."

Hudson, whose full name is Hudson London Anstead, is the sole product of Christina's marriage to British television presenter, Ant Anstead. He was born via a Caesarian section on September 6 and was first introduced to the world through Instagram.
Following his birth, however, it is reported that Christina "hurt herself" as she strived to get back to being the all-round efficient mother she had always been.
Via her official Instagram, the gorgeous star disclosed that because she had felt fine one week after Hudson's birth, she decided to throw her daughter, Tay, a birthday bash.
That was the final straw for Christina, who honestly admitted that she hurt herself and that she felt very weak.
"I always want to be the people pleaser in the family and make sure everyone knows how much I care about them — but in doing so, I wasn't taking care of myself."
It is this heartfelt post that caused fans to leave words of advice admonishing Christina to get some rest and that she did. From her new update, it is evident that she is enjoying her time away from work with her fast-growing son, and here's to hoping she'll share more updates of her time with him.
