Christina Anstead from 'Flip or Flop' Poses with Her 3 Children in Front of a Christmas Tree in Thanksgiving Pics
"Flip or Flop" star Christina Anstead enjoys mommy time with her kids as he shares thanksgiving pictures of them in front of a Christmas tree.
It is that time of the year again when families, friends, and loved ones get together to give thanks for what they have. The family of Christina Anstead was not left out as pictures suggest.
The mother of three took to Instagram to share a montage of images of her thanksgiving celebration with her blended family. In the first photo, the three children posed with their dog in front of a Christmas tree.
While Brayden is wearing a big smile for the camera, Taylor is seen trying to soothe a disgruntled Hudson as the concerned dog looked on. The boys are seen wearing a patterned matching outfit while the girl is adorned in a black jacket atop a skirt.
The HGTV star joined the group in another snap, wearing a sweatshirt over jeans while carrying her sleeping two month-old baby. The mother of three conveyed her gratefulness in her caption with a love emoji.
Anstead wrote in the caption of the photo:
"Thankful (and the best I could get)."
The "Flip or Flop" star in a recent Instagram post gave an insight into how grueling her pregnancy journeys have been. She revealed that she suffers from PCOS hence not having a normal ovulation cycle.
The HGTV star shared that her easiest pregnancy was her first, Taylor, as she went through "physically and emotionally draining" complicated processes to birth her sons.

3 kids, 3 completely different pregnancies and deliveries. I don’t have a normal cycle and the ovulation sticks have never worked for me. That being said, Tay was a natural pregnancy at 25 and my easiest labor. Brayden was an IVF baby and also an emergency c section. Hudson was conceived shortly after Acupuncture treatment I received to help with PCOS (as well as cord cutting but not sure you guys are ready for all that 🤭). All fertility journeys are complicated and can be physically and emotionally draining. I definitely felt very hormonal and isolated during my IVF attempts. It's so refreshing to see @peanut expanding their app to women who are trying to conceive, as well as mothers and those expecting. I would have loved to get advice and meet other women going through similar experiences. @peanut is an app to build friendships, find support and learn from one another. Trying to conceive can be a tough road, and having a community who can relate to your story is so important and something that I really wish I had going through my fertility journey. #peanutapp
The "Christina on the Coast" star has not been finding it easy as she complained about her struggles with caring for her newborn six weeks after she had him.
"Newborn life is hard. It's not all Instagram filters of perfection that people put out there. [expletive] that. That's so misleading for new moms."

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.
The "Flip or Flop" star welcomed the newest member of the family in September 2019 with her husband, Ant Anstead. The couple got married in a "hush hush" wedding ceremony in December 2018.
