Ant Anstead shades Christina Haack amid custody battle


Ant Anstead seemingly shaded Christina Haack’s parenting amid their bitter custody battle.

The former “Wheeler Dealers” co-host posted a video to Instagram Monday of his and Haack’s son, Hudson, and immediately drew ire from his ex-wife’s fans because he previously claimed she had used their toddler for “commercial endeavors” online.

“I thought you didn’t want your son to be exploited on social media,” one user commented on Anstead’s post.

“Absolutely I don’t,” the British TV host responded. “Being a kid and capturing organic moments in the footsteps of a toddler I’m all in favour of! It’s a lovely diary to keep and look back on.

“But being a puppet ‘used’ for commercial gain and being made to perform makes my stomach sick. The two are of course very different x x.”

The exchange comes a few weeks after Anstead, 43, requested full custody of 2-year-old Hudson and described the former “Flip or Flop” co-host, 38, as a “bad mom” in his legal filing. The judge ruled against Anstead because he had an “insufficient showing” of concerns surrounding Hudson while in his ex’s care.

Haack hit back at Anstead’s claims shortly thereafter in a legal filing of her own, saying she was “shocked” by his “motivations.”

The “Christina on the Coast” star asserted that Anstead, who is now dating Renée Zellweger, was solely trying to “create a false narrative and smear my good name” and used Hudson to do so.

Haack’s current husband, Joshua Hall, has been vocal in his support since the custody war began.

“I am not these kids biological father, they have those,” he captioned an Instagram photo with Hudson as well as Haack’s older children, Taylor and Brayden, whom she shares with first husband Tarek El Moussa, on April 29.

“What I will be is the best example of a quality human being, always show them how to treat their mother with respect and support them in any way I can during their development.”
