Did infidelity break up Ant and Christina Anstead?

Life for the Anstead’s look like it was perfect when they featured bits and pieces of their home life on the HGTV makeover show. However, things were not quite as rosy as they appeared to be. In September, Christina dropped a bombshell announced she was separating from Ant.

“Ant and I have made the difficult decision to separate,” Christina posted on Instagram back in September 2020. “We are grateful for each other and as always, our children will remain our priority. We appreciate your support and ask for privacy for us and our family as we navigate the future.”

In the days after the split, Ant finally broke his silence and remained hopeful that they could possibly work things out.

“Anyone who really knows me knows that I don’t like to share private matters publicly,” the reality show personality posted. “I have remained silent while holding on to hope. I never gave up on us, I pray Christina’s decision brings her happiness.”

Neither TV host has confirmed what the real reason for their breakup was, but a bold troll claimed that there was cheating involved.

“Maybe he has cheated on her,” the person replied on an Ant post.

The Wheeler Dealers host saw this reply and shut it down saying, “I can 1000% confirm that is NOT the case.”

As fans came to Ant’s defense apologizing for people leaving “such negative comments,” the television star replied again.

“Misery loves company (a reflection of themselves). Gotta roll with it and pray for them,” Ant added.

Christina Anstead reflects

Since announcing her split from Ant, Christina has also received negative comments coming her way. Although she has tried to ignore them and keep away from social media, they keep on coming. However, back in November 2020, she reflected on the year and shared her thoughts on Instagram.

“2020 definitely is not at all what I imagined it to be — not even close — but I also think there are soooo many lessons in all of this madness,” she wrote. “I’ve been finding time to get to know myself more in the quiet. It can be isolating but it’s also helped me begin to heal and get less uncomfortable in ‘the void.’”
