Competitive, much? Christina Anstead loves spending time with her kids, and that includes bonding with them over video games.
Her husband, Ant Anstead, walked in on the 36-year-old blonde beauty, and her two eldest children — 9-year-old Taylor and 4-year-old Brayden — with their eyes glued on the TV as they played a Super Mario Bros. game. “Hey, Cash, where is everyone?” the British native asked their dog on his Instagram Story, which he shared on Wednesday, January 8.
Christina shares Taylor and Brayden with her ex, Tarek El Moussa, and her newborn, Hudson, with husband Ant. Though they have one unique blended family, they make the best of it. For instance, for Taylor’s birthday in September, Christina and Ant threw her a party at their house, which Tarek and his girlfriend, Heather Rae Young, attended. The father of two exclusively told Life & Style that the key to making his coparenting relationship work has to do with always focusing on the kids. “If you remember to always put the kids first, the rest falls into place,” the Flip or Flop star said.
Most recently, Christina and Tarek got together along with other relatives to support Taylor’s play at school. Though they’re no longer together, they still keep in contact with each other’s families. “Tay’s Christmas performance was sooo cute!” Christina captioned an IG photo with her mini-me in December. “Glad my dad got to come too. We all sat together — my family and Tarek’s family. A couple people acknowledged how nice this is — I know there are a lot of divorced couples (including Tarek’s mom and dad) who do this too and it’s honestly easier for everyone. Plus, Taylor’s face lights up when she sees us all in the same row supporting her.”
When she’s not focused on her kids or career, Christina is all about her man. The couple celebrated their first wedding anniversary in December. They both gave each other a shout-out on the ‘gram, and revealed Christina was pregnant with their son Hudson but had no idea at the time. What a whirlwind it’s been since!
