"Flip or Flop" co-host Christina Anstead and husband Ant Anstead shared an adorable first birthday tribute to their "miracle baby," Hudson.
On September 6, Christina Anstead, 37, took to Instagram to share a sweet message for her baby boy, Hudson. She uploaded several pictures of her son that amassed more than 70,000 reactions. Ant Anstead, 41, in a separate post, wrote:
"Where has the year gone!???"
The TV show host is also a mother to Taylor, 8, and Brayden, 4, whom she shares with ex-husband and "Flip or Flop" co-host Tarek El Moussa.
Christina thought she could not get pregnant anymore as she suffers from a hormone disorder called polycystic ovary syndrome or PCOS. But she was blessed with a third pregnancy.
Ant also shares two grown-up children from ex-wife Louise Herbert - Amelie and Archie.

Now a mother of three, Christina, revealed that motherhood is not always about all things pretty. In reality, she said, it's a challenging job.
Looking out for the welfare of her three children has not been a walk in the park. While taking care of Taylor and Brayden, Christina also needs to attend to Hudson, who would sometimes cry for several hours.
But she has found a trick to soothe her son. She would swaddle him tightly in a cool and dark room with loud white noise in the background.
The "Christina on the Coast" star's authenticity earned her thousands of praises from her fans. They expressed their admiration of her for being real about motherhood.
The television personality also shared on Instagram Story a photo showing a bottle of a gray placenta and encapsulation pills. She took these for the first time to aid in her postpartum struggles.
One fan noted that Christina's pictures on social media showed the true-to-life situations most mothers experience. The fans also thanked the TV host for not posting fake pictures.
Ant also shares two grown-up children from ex-wife Louise Herbert - Amelie and Archie. While taking care of Hudson, the doting father was able to spend time with his other children in the U.K.
The "Wheeler Dealer" star has been keeping his fans updated about his whereabouts. He recently shared photos of his adorable children taken during a recent nature trip.
Ant was supposed to meet his children last May, but flights going to California were canceled. His recent trip and reunion with them were one for the books.
Christina is not one to shy away from expressing her affection for her children. Aside from her birthday tribute to Hudson, she also did not forget to greet Brayden on his birthday.
Christina shared photos of herself and Brayden on Instagram and penned a sweet message for him. She described Brayden as her "light" and "joy."
