Former Flip or Flop star Kristina Hack and Ant Anstead met the three kids for the first time in two years.
Ant shares a son, Hudson, with Christina and his two children Amelie and Archie with his ex-wife Louise.
Ant, 42, has been separated from his children for more than two years due to quarantine restrictions and has been reunited with all of them for the holiday season.
Earlier this week, the TV star posted on Instagram a photo of Emily, 18, Archie, 15, and Hudson watching TV in front of a Christmas tree.
Ants commented on the post: “A movie night with cozy blankets and popcorn. My heart is full.”
Louise Herbert lives with Amelie and Archie in England, while Ant lives in California.
Even with the distance, Ant has continued to be a part of his kids’ lives, often gushing about his kids on his Instagram feed.
He posted pictures of their FaceTime sessions and birthday compliments.
Ant and Christina, 38, were married for just two years before their divorce.
They filed for divorce in September 2020 claiming “irreconcilable differences”.
At this time, it’s still unclear what ultimately led to their split, however, a source told People that the couple had been struggling with their relationship for a year — ever since the birth of their son Hudson.
“After the child, disputes began between them,” the source said.
Christina made an official announcement about their divorce on Instagram, writing, “You and I have made a difficult decision to separate.
“We are grateful to each other and as always, our children will remain our priority.”
He added, “We appreciate your support and ask for privacy for us and our family as we sail into the future.”
The divorce was really hard for Ant, who questioned their separation, saying, “It hit me hard.
It has shown the effect on me, my sleep, my diet, and my stress.
“But I got to that tipping point where I would either dwell in the dark or I would slap myself in the face a few times and say, ‘Wake up; You are incredibly blessed.”
“Focus on all the great things,” he added.

Before marrying Ant, Christina was married to real estate businessman Tariq El Moussa.
The couple owns their own HGTV show titled Flip or Flop and they own a real estate agency together.
They separated in 2018 after nine years of marriage.
Christina and Tarek had two children together, Taylor and Brayden El Moussa.
Despite their split, they went on to shoot Flip or Flop together and take part in the care of their children.
On October 24, 2021, Tariq married Heather Ray Young in a lavish wedding ceremony featuring flower arches and champagne walls.
Christina has moved on hard after her engagement to Joshua Hall three years after Christina finalized her divorce from Tariq.
She announced her engagement to Joshua in September, with three photos of the couple as she flashed a large diamond on her left hand.
In the caption, she put a few emojis including a heart, lock, key, and a diamond ring.
The news comes after Joshua left his ex-wife “sad” by moving in with Christina just two months after their divorce.
The HGTV star was said to have been dating a Texas-born real estate agent for a few months before they were both spotted in public.
