Ant Anstead fears son Hudson is being ‘exploited’ by Christina Haack

Ant Anstead fears his ex-wife Christina Haack is “exploiting” their son, Hudson, amid their ongoing custody battle.

In a court statement obtained by Us Weekly on Tuesday, he claimed Haack was using their 2-year-old son for personal gain, adding that “the risks to a child working on a television production set (even if that ‘set’ is Christina’s home) are countless and well documented.”

He continued, “Leaving aside the obvious pressures of working in a television production environment, children involved in television production often have lingering issues that affect their well-being, worldview and self-image, leaving them diminished and dependent on the perceived approval of others for their self-worth. »

Anstead, 43, said her goal is to ensure Hudson “has the right to a happy, healthy and natural childhood with as little stress as possible, and that should be prioritized over creating business opportunities. and content”.

The ‘Master Mechanic’ star went on to cite the suicide of former ‘Toddlers and Tiaras’ star Kailia Posey as an example of those “lingering effects.”

“One of my many fears of Hudson being forced to film reality television is the possibility that public ridicule over seemingly benign content will become insurmountably humiliating,” he alleged. “I urge the courts to revisit the recent and tragic case of Kailia Posey and a defining embarrassing meme.”

Haack has since refuted Anstead’s claims, saying the “Wheeler Dealers” host’s allegation is “really offensive and just plain untrue.”

In court documents obtained by Page Six, she claimed, “I never exploited our son Hudson. He appeared in a couple of my own Instagram ads which each took less than 5 minutes to film. I have all the pictures and they were all fun things he liked to do, like playing with toys or baking cookies.

She further alleged that “nothing was forced”.

Haack, 39, claimed the couple had already gone into “private mediation” to try to work things out, and that “his statement makes it clear that he only wants to smear me publicly.”

Although removing Hudson from Haack is apparently the ‘last thing’ Anstead wants, in April he claimed the mother-of-three had only seen their son ‘nine full days a month’ in the past 20 months. .

He also accused the ‘Flip or Flop’ star of using their son as a ‘puppet’ to get more brand deals on social media – which she also denied, saying his claims had him “deeply saddened”.
