Christina Haack and Joshua Hall labeled themselves ‘irresponsible parents’ on social media 

On May 28, Christina Haack and her new husband, Joshua Hall, had some fun on social media by playfully labeling themselves “irresponsible parents.”

Hall posted a photo on his Instagram Stories of the couple playing what appeared to be beer pong with his sister, Stacie Adams, and her husband, Joel Adams. Stacie is not only Haack’s sister-in-law, but she has also appeared on multiple reality TV shows, including The Hills and Vanderpump Rules.

The two couples hugged their respective partners in the photo while Hall aimed a ping pong ball at a red plastic cup. He wrote “Irresponsible parents” over the image. Haack reposted the same photo and caption on her Instagram Stories. 

Hall’s post seemed pointed, considering Haack’s ongoing custody battle with her second ex-husband, Ant Anstead. 

Joshua Hall recently defended Christina Haack’s parenting amid her custody battle with Ant Anstead

In April, English TV presenter Ant Anstead filed for emergency custody of his 2-year-old son Hudson, whom he shares with Christina Haack. Anstead and Haack married in 2018, had Hudson in 2019, and were legally divorced in 2021. 

In court documents related to his emergency custody order, Anstead claimed Haack was an unfit parent, saying she endangered their toddler and put him at medical risk. 

In comparison, Haack’s new husband, Joshua Hall, recently praised her on social media for navigating a health scare with her oldest son, Brayden. Haack shares custody of Brayden with her first ex-husband, Tarek El Moussa. The 6-year-old had to have emergency surgery on Mother’s Day.

On May 8, Hall posted a loving tribute to his Flip or Flop star wife on Instagram

“I spend a lot of my sharing speaking about how amazing I think Christina is and today was just the cherry on top,” the former police officer captioned a back and white photo of Haack with their two dogs. He gushed over how she never “showed any sign of weakness” and went “without sleep for the last 33+ hours” while caring for her sick child. 

“So we will always remember this Mother’s Day and I will always remember why God made Christina a mother, because she was made for it,” Hall concluded. “Happy Mother’s Day to this woman, my mother and all the moms out there today. ❤️”

The HGTV star’s sister-in-law will appear on her new show ‘Christina in the Country’ 

Christina Haack’s sister-in-law appeared in her “irresponsible parents” post, and that’s not the last time fans can expect to see Stacie Adams. On May 28, Haack revealed that Joshua Hall’s sister would star in the first episode of her upcoming new HGTV show Christina in the Country.

The Flip or Flop star posted an Instagram photo showing herself and Hall dining with Adams and her husband. “Double date night with my gorgeous sister-in-law,” Haack wrote in the caption. “Stacie and Joel are episode number 1 of Christina in the Country. So fun getting to all work on their home together, it’s gonna be a beautiful transformation! 🤍”
