You think your life is exhausting? Try juggling being a real estate investor, a Dog Mom, a host, a co-author, a reality TV star, a media personality and a Mom influencer. Kinda out of breath just reading that. Well if you haven’t guessed already, we’re talking about Christina Anstead here. Or is it Christina El Moussa? Hm… Nope, nevermind. That’s a different story – will get to that later on.
So how exactly did this all come to be?
Well, it all goes back to her first job straight out of school, which in fact was in real estate. That’s actually where she met her first ex-husband Tarek El Moussa (thus the last name). Things were actually going great for the couple up until the stock market crash of 2008. They lost almost everything. But things gradually started going back to normal. Tarek and Christina El Moussa tied the knot in 2009. They have two beautiful kids together – Taylor and Brayden.
Christina’s media career hit a high when she was a guest judge on the HGTV series Brother vs. Brother. After Tarek pulled some strings, Christina and him signed a deal with HGTV and yet another TV show Flip or Flop was born starring both Christina and Tarek in 2013. Due to its success, each of them was getting paid $40000 per episode for the third season. The show centered around them buying different properties and then flipping them for profit. And even though the couple separated in 2016, they still kept it professional and came together to film the final eighth season of the show.
In 2017, Christina started dating the television presenter Ant Anstead. They got married in December 2018, and in March of 2019 they shared the exciting news of expecting their firstborn – Hudson London. Unfortunately, the couple separated in 2020 due to still unknown reasons. So two divorces in, our girl Christina decides to switch back to her maiden name Haack. But in a lot of mediums she’s still known as either Anstead or El Moussa. Currently she goes by Christina Haack on Instagram where she mostly shares content about her kids and a little bit about her work life. That’s one of the platforms where her 1.6M Instagram followers can get a sense of how she manages to juggle everything, and still remain a loving exemplary Mom figure.
Christina Anstead is widely known as a familiar face in the media. She currently even has her own TV show series called Christina on the Coast. The TV show is portraying different aspects of her life whether it’s helping people turn old properties into stylish new spaces, her juggling work and being a Mom, or her engagement to her second ex-husband Ant Anstead. She was paid $50000 per episode. And as of recently, she is the co-author of the book The Wellness Remodel that’s all about how to choose and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
The influencer has a huge fan base and even a bigger net worth of $12 million. This multidimensional woman reached many heights in her life but it does not seem like she is planning to stop anytime soon. And why in the world should she stop?
