The “Wheelers Dealers” presenter and the “Christina on the Coast” star surprised everyone by announcing their split after less than two years of marriage, but they are apparently on good terms.
It’s been only three weeks since 41-year-old English TV presenter Ant Anstead’s split from his second wife, 37-year-old TV personality Christina Anstead, was revealed on the latter’s social media.
The sad news came out about a year after the former couple welcomed son Hudson London, nicknamed Hudzo by his father, and now, they are adapting to this new stage of friendly co-parent him.

Ant recently took to his Instagram Stories to share a video of a very important milestone for Hudzo, who is already learning how to walk, and in a friendly gesture, he tagged his ex, Christina, in the since-unavailable post, also captioned:
“I love this stage…”

The clip pictured Hudzo wearing a white onesie as he takes a few steps down Ant’s hallway, falling at one point. During its duration, Ant could bee heard encouraging his son to keep going, comically teasing him when he falls.
WHAT’S IN A NAME
Ever since announcing the split from Ant, whom she married in December 2018, Christina has turned off the comments of every post she has made on Instagram, probably because she doesn’t want to deal with the comments about her private life.
But in a recent snapshot she shared on her feed, Christina found a different way of making a nod to what’s going on in her life, with the reality-TV star posing in front of her new yacht.
Christina named the vessel, “Aftermath,” as she revealed in the October 7 post, which shows her with her arms up in celebration as she holds two champagne bottles to christen it.
The move reminds us of what Christina’s former husband and “Flip or Flop” co-star, Tarek El Moussa, did with his own yacht after Christina and him divorced in January 2018, after being married for nine years.
Also the owner of a luxury yacht, El Moussa renamed the vessel, formerly known as “Flip or Flop,” “Bad Decisions,” a funny commentary on the demise of the marriage, which, according to him, Christina and him “laughed about.”
Ant and Christina might be friendly with each other on social media, but this in no way means that the two are having second thoughts about taking different paths, with a source recently claiming that Christina is only looking forward to move on.
“She saw everything she needed to see in their marriage and has made the difficult decision to move on,” a source close to the former couple shared with E! News late in September, just a week after the separation was made public.
According to the source, Christina is focused on working and doing what has to be done to “start over and be a single mom,” which doesn’t mean that she hasn’t had times on which she was left crying in private as she heals and reflects.
