Christina Anstead of reality TV shows Christina on the Coast and Flip or Flop has announced the arrival of her third child! This baby is the first child Christina welcomes with her husband Ant.
The couple’s new bundle of joy is a sweet baby boy. They have chosen to name him Hudson London. How adorable! Christina didn’t waste any time revealing the birth of her new son. She gave birth this morning and hours later shared the news!
In 2009, Christina was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome, also known as PCOS. Prior to having her second child, she tried in-vitro fertilization twice, but both attempted failed, and also suffered a miscarriage. She attributes acupuncture to assisting her in conceiving this time around! She saw an acupuncturist to help deal with stress but six days later she ended up conceiving.
A week before giving birth, Christina took to Instagram to share that she would be giving birth to her child in via a scheduled c-section. She shared, “I chose to do this because I had an emergency c-section with Brayden and the whole experience and recovery was really hard on me physically and emotionally. I really don’t feel comfortable trying to go down that route again.”

Well…. Here we go @ant_anstead … our world is about to get rocked – in all the best ways of course. 👶🏻 One week until my scheduled c-section. I chose to do this because I had an emergency c-section with Brayden and the whole experience and recovery was really hard on me physically and emotionally. I really don’t feel comfortable trying to go down that route again. Bray was 8lbs 13oz – after pushing for hours and hours – he was just stuck and his heart rate was dropping. Based on ultrasound measurements we think this is going to be another big boy so this is the direction we’ve decided to take. The nursery is ready, the kids are back in school, I’m not sleeping, irritable and uncomfortable. I’m definitely ready to be done and to meet our little man. One week countdown 🙌🏼🎉
Christina and Ant met in November of 2017 and became inseparable. They made their relationship official with a surprise wedding ceremony on Dec. 22, 2018, at their Newport Beach, California home. Both Christina and Ant had children from previous relationships. Christina, who stared on the show Flip or Flop with her then-husband Tarek El Moussa, share two children together, a daughter Taylor Reese, 9 and son Brayden James, 4. Ant has a son and daughter as well, Archie, 13, and Amelie, 16, with his ex.
Earlier this summer, Christina shared with People, “It’s so amazing that we get to raise a child together. All of the kids are so excited. I love all the fun chaos and a full house. I always thought I would only have two, and now I’ll have five!”
