Christina Hall and Ant Anstead were granted joint legal and physical custody of their son after their divorce in July. However, Ant Anstead’s appeal for full custody of his 2-year-old son with ex-wife Christina Haack has been recently denied by a judge.

According to court documents acquired by Page Six, the Orange County Superior Court judge ruled on Thursday that Anstead presented an “insufficient showing” of concerns about Hudson. He also did not provide Haack with ample warning.

Instead, on June 28, the former couple will appear at a hearing to present their case for why the proposed change in custody should be allowed. Anstead’s representative has declined to comment.

Haack’s representative did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment on the judge’s decision, but the “Flip or Flop” star did express her sadness about the former “Wheeler Dealers” co-host’s filing in which he labeled her a horrible mother.


“What Ant is doing deeply saddens me. If this was really about Hudson, as he says, this should have been handled privately with a private judge or mediation, as myself and my attorney have suggested.

I have had my share of ups and downs but I am a good mom and I love my children with all my heart and I will always protect them.”

Anstead and Hall started dating in 2017 and tied the knot in December of the same year. The former couple filed for divorce in 2020, and the divorce was finalized in June 2021 by a judge. Hall was previously married to HGTV co-star Tarek El Moussa before marrying Anstead. However, keep an on Thirsty to get the latest update about the case.
