Christina Anstead of 'Flip or Flop' Fame Shares Photo of 1st Date with Husband Ant since Their Anniversary Last Month
Since their first anniversary, Christina and Ant Anstead finally found time to spend alone, away from the kids and other responsibilities.
With their busy schedule and the kids always being around, the Ansteads hardly get to spend time alone. However, they recently found a way around it and got to enjoy some alone adult time.
The couple celebrated their first anniversary in December last year and for the first time since then, they went out on a date on Saturday, January 11.
They commenced their date with electric bike rides to Fashion Island in Newport Beach, California. After the fun rides, they capped off the time with the movie, "Bombshell."
Christina Anstead took to her Instagram page to share the moment with her followers. She posted a picture of herself and her husband, Ant Anstead with the caption:
"Mom + Dad took a little time for ourselves yesterday - electric bike ride to fashion island (where we watched the movie "Bombshell" -so good) ... it's the first time we've had a few hours alone since our anniversary…"
In her post, Christina also opened up about her intention to make sure adult time alone doesn't become a one-time thing. She said it's time to make sure it is a priority.
Since they got married, the couple has been saddled with parenting duties as shortly after they tied the knot, they welcomed their first child together, Hudson.
Christina still works on the set of HGTV's "Flip or Flop" with her ex, and they have developed a healthy relationship

Mom + Dad took a little time for ourselves yesterday - electric bike ride to fashion island (where we watched the movie “Bombshell” -so good) ... it’s the first time we’ve had a few hours alone since our anniversary. Not good obviously... I am usually good at making sure everyone in the fam has one-on-one with me time but it’s been @ant_anstead and I who haven’t had much of that. We thrive on getting adult alone time as I’m sure most couples do .... time to make sure I make this a priority...❤️
After the birth of Hudson, the mother of three couldn't help but share her struggles with her newborn son, whom she considers the hardest of her three kids.
Christina decided to be honest about it and do away with pretenses of perfection. She took to her Instagram page to post a picture of herself and her sleeping Hudson. In the caption, she wrote:
"Newborn life is hard. It's not all Instagram filters of perfection that people put out there. F that. That's so misleading to 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.
In December 2018, the actress and her husband tied the knot in a surprise ceremony after being engaged secretly three months before.
