What’s Next for Ant Anstead & Christina Hall as Judge Denies His Request for Full CustodyView Story
They share son Hudson, 2, and Anstead recently filed an emergency request for full custody of the boy. He was denied, but the judge wants Ant and Christina to attend a hearing on June 28 to determine whether a change in their custody agreement is necessary.

He said, “At the time my partner (who we know is Renée Zellweger) was filming her new project and her covid diagnosis placed the whole production on pause."
Ant also expressed concern for Hudson’s health after he suffered a sunburn. Ant says he texted Christina about the sunburn. She allegedly responded, “... It didn't feel hot. Give him some Tylenol im sure it will be better tomorrow."
Anstead claimed that Christina has not been very present in their son’s life, saying she spends an average of “9 full days each month" with their son for the past year and a half.
Along with wanting Christina to have Hudson on alternating weekends, he is requesting that she stop posting about their son on social media in any “commercial endeavor” unless he approves.

Christina responded to the filing, telling People, "What Ant is doing deeply saddens me. If this was really about Hudson, as he says, this should have been handled privately with a private judge or mediation, as myself and my attorney have suggested."
