Haack and Anstead Finalized Their Divorce

Haack and Anstead have finalized their divorce nearly nine months after announcing their split in September 2020.

“Ant and I have made the difficult decision to separate,” the “Christina on the Coast” star wrote at the time. “We are grateful for each other and as always, our children will remain our priority. We appreciate your support and ask for privacy for us and our family as we navigate the future.”

She filed for divorce in November.

According to Entertainment Tonight, the former couple will split legal and physical custody of their son Hudson. Neither party will pay spousal support.

Haack was previously married to her “Flip or Flop” co-host, Tarek El Moussa, with whom she shares two children. Anstead also has two children from a previous marriage.

Anstead Finds Solace in New Home

Shortly after news of his burgeoning relationship with Zellweger broke, Anstead took to Instagram.

“No matter how bonkers the world gets….. the Temple sanctuary switches off and washes off the crazy,” he wrote of the home he calls “Temple House.” I am so grateful to unwind in this space!”

The “Wheeler Dealers” star continued, “Look what god did! Oh, and Speaking of bonkers, wait till you see what I’m gonna do with Temple home!”

Anstead revealed to People that he moved into his new home in May after spending months in a studio apartment following his split.

After the breakup, he abruptly left the home he shared with Haack. As he told People, “When my divorce went through, I packed up my clothes and moved. I walked away completely and left everything there.”
