Anstead, who was married to Hall for two years before their September 2020 split, previously agreed to joint custody of Hudson, but has since changed his mind. (The exes welcomed their son in September 2019, after walking down the aisle nearly one year prior.)
The British TV personality — who also shares daughter Amelie and son Archie with ex-wife Louise Storey — called out Haack for her alleged poor parenting in the April filing.
In fact, Anstead alleged that in January, Hall returned Hudson to him without disclosing that the child had tested positive for COVID-19.
Anstead proceeded to call into question Hall’s ability to safely parent Hudson, referencing her past use of the hallucinogenic Bufo Alvarius toad venom as an example of her being unfit to care for the little one.
The Wellness Remodel coauthor previously revealed via Instagram in July 2021 that she “smoked a Bufo toad” while on her journey of self-discovery. It “basically reset my brain and kicked out years of anxiety in 15 mins,” she said of the experience.
Anstead’s filing for sole custody comes days after the Christina: Stronger by Design star revealed that she and new husband Joshua Hall had moved from Dana Point to Newport Beach, California, as a family. Us confirmed in early April that Christina and Joshua had recently tied the knot after getting engaged in September 2021.
After news broke of Anstead’s custody petition, Christina told Us in a statement on April 28 that she is “deeply” saddened by his course of action in the matter. “I am a good mom and I love my children with all my heart,” she noted.
