As Ant Anstead's Meet Cute With Renee Zellweger Heads To TV, Christina And The Kids Move Out

Christina Haack and Ant Anstead had to deal with going through a surprising and very public divorce last year during a time which was likely already pretty difficult. While Anstead mostly dealt with it by staying quiet about what led them to break up, and Haack has been pretty vocal about how she's coping, both are moving on with their lives. Anstead has been linked with Oscar winner Renée Zellweger in recent weeks, and as the show they met on is quickly approaching its debut, Haack and her kids are now moving out of the home they shared with him.

Reports came out just about a month ago that master mechanic, car designer, and TV host Ant Anstead may have started dating Renée Zellweger, after she filmed an episode of his upcoming Discovery+ series, Celebrity IOU Joyride. The show features Anstead and his co-host helping celebrities as they surprise the important people in their lives with custom vehicles, and Zellweger and Anstead are said to have hit it off during filming. The trailer for the new show recently came out, revealing that Celebrity IOU Joyride will debut in August, and gave fans some snippets of the episode which will feature the award-winning actress, just as Anstead's ex-wife left their former home behind.

Take a look at the tweet that shows off the new trailer, so we can discuss the situation, below:

I'm sure that the eagle-eyed among you will notice that we barely got to see any of Renée Zellweger in that trailer, but considering the fact that neither she nor Anstead have publicly talked about their new romance, that's hardly a large shock. While it appears to now be more than a rumor (with them being spotted kissing during a walk over the weekend) that Zellweger and Anstead are an item, it seems that they want to keep things at least semi-private. Plus, I doubt that the producers of Celebrity IOU Joyride want people to tune in to see them together, and nothing else.

Even though fans will soon get to watch Renée Zellweger and Ant Anstead interact on the small screen (and potentially see the seeds of something romantic), the chapter of his life that he shared with Christina Haack has closed further. Haack talked last month about selling the Newport Beach, California home she and her kids (Taylor, 10, and Brayden, 5, with ex-husband Tarek El Moussa, and Hudson, 22 months, her son with Anstead) once had with the British television personality, and this weekend also saw Haack post on Instagram about finally moving out of the house, which sold for $5.35 million, according to People.

Haack and her kids look pretty happy, so it's good that there didn't seem to be much by the way of moving day stress for them. This is good for many reasons, but especially nice to hear for Haack, as she reportedly had to deal with a recent on-set tirade during the filming of Flip or Flop with her ex, El Moussa, which was directed at her and allegedly got very nasty. It's also worth noting that going through a divorce (and with young children involved) is never easy, so Haack is probably even more glad to be able to close out this chapter of her life by physically moving on with her kids, particularly as she's now gone Instagram official with her new boyfriend.

Celebrity IOU Joyride will hit Discovery+ on August 23, Flip or Flop Season 10 is filming right now, and Hacck's other show, Christina on the Coast premiered Season 3 on HGTV this summer.
