Christina Anstead goes back to her roots.
The “Christina on the Coast” star, who is 37, switched a subtle contact on Instagram and returned to her maiden name Christina Haack in the middle of her divorce from Ant Anstead.
However, the handle to the HGTV star’s account still bears the last name of her stranger’s other husband.
Christina’s personal life has undergone many changes since September, when she first announced on the social media platform that she and Anstead had made the “difficult decision” to end their marriage.
CHRISTINA ANSTEAD REVEALS NEW MAYA ANGELOU-INSPIRED BACK TATTOO IN THE MIDDLE SPLIT FROM HUSMAND ANT: ̵
Earlier this month, co-host “Flip or Flop” unveiled a new Maya Angelou-inspired tattoo that reads “Still I Rise” in black italics in the middle of the back. She has also shown a sweet addition to her family: a new Rottweiler puppy. Ant, meanwhile, has been outspoken about the split and has recently revealed that a separation was not what he wanted.
“I think everyone knows this was not my decision,” Ant told People Magazine earlier. “It hit me really hard.”
Christina, meanwhile, has “done well” while navigating the split, her first ex-husband, Tarek El Moussa, said this month. The exes still co-host their hit HGTV show “Flip or Flop.”
It seems that Christina and Tarek have mastered co-parents of their two children – daughter Taylor, 10, and son Brayden, 5. She and Ant also share time with their 16-month-old son Hudson. This weekend, Christina shared a selfie with little Hudson in what appears to be a hot tub.

Just before the new year, Christina announced that she would be taking a step back from Instagram to “be present” with her loved ones during the holidays.
She was also hit by criticism shortly before when trolls on social media claimed she was an “absent mother.”

“When I am told, ‘you must be an absent mother because you are not with your children’ – smh (shakes her head),” Christina responded at the time. “Wake up people. I’m hardly writing anymore … and I do not want to send my kids every freaking day to make it a contest about who’s a better parent. F.”
Christina argued that the lack of photographic evidence for her time spent with her children does not justify the accusations she receives.

“It means the opposite – I’m with them – I’m present,” she said. “So stop parents from embarrassing people, stop choosing pages when there is no page to choose. My point is – when you see things here, take it all with a grain of salt. There are a whole lot of filters and fakes. smile. I I too have been guilty of faking it. We all fight – some of us are just better at “masking” it.
Christina and Ant began dating in 2017 and got married a year later at a ceremony in Newport Beach, California.
