After the Flip or Flop star confirmed that she and Ant had parted ways after less than two years of marriage earlier this month, she and Ant surfaced on social media days ago, where she suggested she had jumped into her relationship with Ant in an effort to fill a void and he confirmed that their breakup was not his decision.
In a post shared on Instagram on Saturday, September 26, Christina admitted to being in an unhealthy pattern after first telling her fans and followers that she never wanted to live her life in the spotlight.
“I live in a state of anxiousness and I’m so used to it that when it’s not there I tend to feel a void and hop into something that causes the feeling I’m used to. This can be good and bad. And it’s one of the things I’m working on breaking the pattern of. Sometimes anxiety and pursuit of new dreams leads me down amazing paths, other times it leaves me feeling lost and in a state of fight or flight / or crying in my closet,” Christina wrote, seemingly giving a nod to her and Ant’s whirlwind romance.
“I never thought I would have one divorce let alone two. I never thought I would have 2 baby daddies – but sometimes life throws us curve balls,” she continued.
According to Christina, she refuses to let her patterns and mistakes define her and is instead hoping to inspire others.
“Instead of getting stuck in these ‘setbacks’ I choose to look at these challenges as opportunities to grow. I hope my story inspires you to not be so hard on yourself for the decisions / choices you’ve made. We are all a work in progress,” she concluded.

For those of you who don’t know me (or think you know me) let me reintroduce myself. I hate crowds, I love traveling, all things spiritual, the ocean and deep one on one conversations. I never thought about being on tv. I wanted to be a sports agent like Jerry Maguire. But I always loved looking at houses with my parents especially model homes and I always wanted to be my own boss… So in college when I was called (intuitively) to get my real estate license at a local community college I followed my intuition. I got started in real estate at 21 which led to selling houses which led to flipping houses which led to Tv. Now while I never wanted to be on tv, stepping out of my comfort zone and into the unknown has always been my thing. I live in a state of anxiousness and I’m so used to it that when it’s not there I tend to feel a void and hop into something that causes the feeling I’m used to. This can be good and bad. And it’s one of the things I’m working on breaking the pattern of. Sometimes anxiety and pursuit of new dreams leads me down amazing paths, other times it leaves me feeling lost and in a state of fight or flight / or crying in my closet. Tv changed my life and I am grateful for the life it’s provided, the experiences, the friends I’ve made along the way. Sometimes our calling is bigger than our plans. I never thought I would have one divorce let alone two. I never thought I would have 2 baby daddies – but sometimes life throws us curve balls. Instead of getting stuck in these “setbacks” I choose to look at these challenges as opportunities to grow. So while some may judge me and throw around rumors about me, most of you support me. And that says a lot about this world and where we are headed. I’m messy, I’m real and I’m working on healing. I’m surrounded by extremely powerful women who help me cope, build me up and push me to be better. If you’ve DM me or text me – I haven’t written back because I’m taking time to clear the “noise” and focus on myself and the kids. I appreciate the support and I hope my story inspires you to not be so hard on yourself for the decisions / choices you’ve made. We are all a work in progress. ✨♥️
Christina and Ant got married in December 2018, less than one year after her divorce from ex-husband Tarek El Moussa was finalized, and welcomed son Hudson in September 2019. Then, on September 18 of this year, Christina officially announced the end of her second marriage on Instagram.
Hours after Christina posted her message above, Ant shared a statement of his own in which he made it clear that he did not want their marriage to end.
“Anyone who really knows me knows that I don’t like to share private matters publicly. I have remained silent while holding on to hope. I never gave up on us. I pray Christina’s decision brings her happiness,” he stated.
In addition to the son she shares with Ant, Christina is also mom to daughter Taylor, 10, and son Brayden, 5, who she shares with Tarek.

We finally did a live interview after 6 months of zoom calls!! It was outdoors with @entertainmenttonight and we got down to the nitty gritty lol. . We were interviewed about how we met, what’s it like to be together, and of course our proposal! It airs October 7th so set your DVR! . These last 14 months with @heatherraeyoung have been crazy and flew by!! It took a lot of time and healing to get here but I couldn’t be happier. . Life is about choices. You have to choose to be better and choose to want more. In life, sometimes things are out of your control. What helped me was accepting I can’t control the actions of others. I had to learn that I control my destiny and no one else. . I hit rock bottom years ago and fought to get my life back. I say this to you because it is a fight and you can never quit. Always fight for you and what you want! What you are looking for is out there but it’s up to you to do the work and find it! . Thank you for all the support over the years because honestly… I couldn’t have done it without you😊! . Now…who’s going to tune in to next weeks episode of Flipping 101 where I ask @heatherraeyoung to be my wife!? .
