Christina Anstead is the happy mother of a newborn baby boy!
The ‘Flip or Flop’ star gave birth to baby Hudson London Anstead Friday, after a scheduled C-section in a hospital in Orange County, CA. The proud father, Ant Anstead, married the reality earlier this year, and the couple now shares a home in the OC.
“Ant and I are so excited to welcome Hudson London Anstead into the world,” Christina told her fans on Instagram. “Our hearts are SO full of love and joy! Our healthy baby boy was born this morning- 9/6/19 – 7 lbs 7 oz 19.5 inches long.”
The 36-year-old revealed the date of the rapidly approaching birth on Instagram last week with a message to her husband, “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.”
She went on to detail what made her choose the surgery route, “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. … One week countdown.”
Christina and Ant are currently documenting the pregnancy and birth on their new show, “Christina on the Coast,” and have shared intimate moments prepping the family home for the new arrival.
The real estate flipper shares two kids with ex-husband Tarek El Moussa, Taylor (8) and Brayden, (3). Plus, as a part of their new blended family, Ant also has two kids.
El Moussa told US Weekly, “She’s having the baby tomorrow, so I’m excited for her,” Thursday while attending the HGTV’s A Very Brady Renovation premiere. “Tomorrow my children are going to have a new brother. It’s all one big family!” he said to reporters.
