Christina & Ant Anstead’s Divorce: A Source Sheds Light on ‘Difficult Year’

A source is shedding light on Christina Anstead’s split from husband Ant after nearly two years of marriage.

Christina announced their breakup last week, writing on Instagram, “Ant and I have made the difficult decision to separate. 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.”

Now, an insider tells E! News that "Christina is very disappointed,” adding, "Bringing home the new baby was extremely difficult and challenging. It's been a very difficult year with a lot of hard times."

The source went on, "She never thought she was going to get a divorce so soon. She tried to give it more of a chance but it became very clear that it wasn't going to work."

The star couple started dating in October 2017, and tied the knot in a surprise wedding in December 2018. They welcomed son Hudson in September 2019.

They have four children from previous relationships, including Christina’s daughter Taylor, 9, and son Brayden, 4, with ex-husband Tarek El Moussa, and Ant’s daughter Amelie, 16, and son Archie, 13, with ex-wife Louise.
