Christina Anstead of 'Flip or Flop' Fame Melts Hearts with Photo of Adorable Baby Hudson as He Turns 4 Months Old
Onscreen diva Christina Anstead mesmerizes her fans with a picture of her cute 4-month-old baby, Hudson London.
The talk show host had her son in colorful outfit, seated inside a baby car seat, and the photo also showed Hudson wearing a cute smile.
The photo was captioned "4️ months old," as loads of fans reacted and posted a slew of comments aimed at admiring the youngster who wore a cheerful look.
Motherhood for Christina is both fun and tasking. The mother of three revealed that her son cries for a prolonged period and that her older daughter once asked about the toll her duties as a mother is taking on her.
The "Flip or Flop" star admitted to not having it easy lumping all the responsibilities of her kids at once but explained that she is thrilled her youngest child's behavior isn't affecting the relationship between her kids. She said:
"I was dropping Tay off at school that morning with a screaming Hudson in the car..She said, well, what if they get a photo of you looking like that? And I'm like I wouldn't care...Well glad these six weeks haven't scared her off from babies."

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.
Christina Anstead also explained that contrary to what many might think, there are lots of rigors involved in raising all three of her kids.
Sometimes she even has dinner in bed, with her husband, Ant Anstead, and their son, so that a sleeping Hudson wouldn't get disturbed.
Ant reportedly noted that he is lucky to have kids who understand the concept of togetherness
The HGTV star is due to end her maternity leave in a couple of weeks, and she announced that she will be looking gorgeous due to the help of a fellow new mom who happens to be her make-up artist.
Even though her life revolves around catering for kids and not paying so much attention to herself, the onscreen star stated that she would be a lot more presentable on screen.
"...So when you see me looking decent on tv to know that I probably had a freaky crazy morning, and it is what it is."
Hudson is Christina's first child with her British host husband; her first two children, Taylor and Brayden are for her former husband, Tarek El Moussa, who is a "Flip or Flop" alum.
While she has two kids from a previous marriage, Ant also has two children from a past relationship, namely Archie and Amelie.
Irrespective of having different parents, all four kids blend in well, and this makes one big happy family. Ant reportedly noted that he is lucky to have kids who understand the concept of togetherness.
In terms of parenting the kids, Anstead explained that he and his wife share excellent communication skills, which makes the job easier.
