Christina Anstead has given birth to her baby boy!
The Christina On The Coast star and husband Ant Anstead welcomed son Hudson London Anstead on September 6. It’s the first child for the couple, but both are already parents. Christina shares nearly 9-year-old Taylor Reese and 4-year-old Brayden James with ex-husband Tarik El Moussa. Ant shares 15-year-old Amelie and 13-year-old Archie with ex-wife Louise Anstead.
Christina announced her baby boy’s arrival on Instagram, writing: “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.”
With the arrival of little Hudson, Christina and Ant are now a family of seven! Christina joked in her pregnancy announcement that the family would need a bigger car, adding in a VW bus emoji. It’s going to be the best kind of chaos, and Christina and Ant seem totally ready for it.
Christina revealed her birth plan last week, explaining that she elected to have a scheduled C-section after a difficult birthing experience with Brayden. “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 explained in an Instagram caption.
“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,” Christina continued. We can’t blame her. A traumatic birthing experience can take a serious toll, so we’re happy to see things went smoothly this time around.
Congratulations to the happy couple on their beautiful new arrival!
