Christina Anstead of 'Flip or Flop' Posts New Pics of Son in Casper the Friendly Ghost Outfit on 2-Month Birthday
Christina Anstead celebrate's her son, Hudson London Anstead, turning two-months-old with an adorable picture of the newborn wearing a Halloween themed onesie.
"Baby #HudsonLondon is 2 months old today. We are all running on adrenaline and I feel like I probably won't remember the 4th quarter of 2019. ?. Love you Huds - and I know you are going to be an easy teenager ?."
Christina shares a picture of Hudson laying on his back on a blue and gray feather printed blanket. Wearing a "Casper: The Friendly Ghost" white printed onesie, her son shows of his blue eyes as he stares directly at the camera.
"Look what we made, ? ? x" her husband Ant Anstead gushes.
"Wheeler Dealers" star, Ant Anstaed also two children from a previous relationship; Amelie and Archie.
Hudson is the couple's first child together. Despite the Christina and Ant having years of parenting experience with their older children, Christina admits that Hudson had been a lot harder to raise, she says:
"Huds is definitely a tough baby. He will sometimes cry for hours straight. We have had trouble with sucking (checked for tongue tie / lip tie) those were fine."

I was dropping Tay off at school this morning with a screaming Hudson in the car (and I looked like a hot mess which is the norm the past 6 weeks) when she said something that really hit home. She said mom, do paparazzi still follow you around. And I said no not lately. Why? She said well what if they got a photo of you looking like THAT 🙄😂 I’m like I wouldn’t care, that’s the least of my worries ... this is how I look and I’m still out and about, this is how new moms look. And she sort of pondered that and said she wants three kids and I have to live with her so I can watch them. Well glad these past 6 weeks haven’t scared her off from babies lol. Newborn life is hard. It’s not all instagram filters of perfection that people put out there. F that. That’s so misleading for new moms. I haven’t been online or posting much because my hands are full - literally. Huds is definitely a tough baby. He will sometimes cry for hours straight. We have had trouble with sucking (checked for tongue tie / lip tie) those were fine. Cut out dairy, tried colic calm, he doesn’t spit up so prob not reflex. What works is him tightly double swaddled in a dark cool room with very loud white noise.... Hudson’s choice of spending his time is very unrealistic when we have a crazy 4 year old running around who definitely needs attention as well as a 9 year old girl who one-on-one time is her love language. I say this with mad props to all stay at home moms / moms with more than 2 kids . Being outnumbered is no joke. I go back to work in 2 weeks so it’s about to get even more crazy around here. I’m lucky because one of my best friends, Shannon @pinkdustcosmetics , is a new mom too and she does my hair and makeup at home before work and we get to have a one hour therapy/vent session, and I know this is a luxury. So when you see me looking decent on tv know that I probably had a freaking crazy morning and it is what it is. I’m lucky because I do love my job and I’m excited to start some new episodes of #christinaonthecoast Sorry for the long post- Wish us all luck. It takes a village lol.
Trying some old tricks of things that worked with her other children, she says Hudson didn't respond to them, so she's learning a new style pf parenting that works with her new-born, she explains:
"What works is him tightly double swaddled in a dark cool room with very loud white noise."
A little over a year after the couple met they were married, brought their blended families together and welcomed Hudson into the family, all in just one year.
Yet with all the chaos of their careers and household Ant admitted on the two year anniversary of their wedding that since marrying Christina he had found his soulmate after years of feeling lost.
