Christina Anstead is officially a mom-of-three! The interior designer has welcomed a son, which is her first child with her new husband Ant Anstead.
Baby Hudson was born on September 6th , his excited parents revealed via Instagram “Ant and I are so excited to welcome Hudson London Anstead into the world. 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,” Christina captioned a photo of herself holding her newest addition.
Her husband was just as excited on social media. He captioned his own post, “Welcome to the world! Hudson London Anstead I am in awe! Mummy and baby are simply perfect!”
While this is their first child together, neither Christina nor Ant are newbies to the parenting game. Christina shares 9-year old daughter Taylor and 4-year old son Brayden with her ex-husband Tarek El-Moussa. Ant shares 16-yeaar old daughter Amelie and 13-year old son Archie with his ex-wife Louise. Christina and Ant married last year, which was the same year she finalized her divorce from her reality star ex.
“It’s so amazing that we get to raise a child together,” Christina previously told People of their blended family. “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!”
The mother was also candid about how much of a surprise this pregnancy was. Christina was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome in 2009 and struggled to get pregnant with her first two kids. She also suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage in 2015. She and Ant weren’t trying to get pregnant when it happened this time around, but Christina thanks her acupuncturist for helping make it possible.
“I went to an acupuncturist to help me deal with stress,” she also told to People. “I explained to the woman that I had polycystic ovaries. She told me, ‘Oh, I used to have that too. I think I can help.’ She did some needle work, and six days later we conceived.”
Christina has yet to share about how the delivery of her son Hudson went. Previously, however, she revealed she was planning on having a C-section, like she did for the birth of her second child. “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,” she revealed on Instagram. “I really don’t feel comfortable trying to go down that route again.”
We can’t wait to get more updates on Christina’s newest little miracle!
