It looks like Megan Fox isn’t the only one defending herself against claims of being an absent mother.
Christina Anstead can relate. The Flip or Flop and Christina on the Coast star took to Instagram after she started getting some nasty comments from trolls about her parenting.
Christina and husband Ant Anstead split in September. The 37-year-old mom of three filed for divorce this week. As she takes steps to move on with her life, people are sharing their two cents about how she lives it.
People started leveling claims that Christina isn’t spending any time with her kids. The basis for those claims? She doesn’t post them on her social media.
Christina shared her thoughts on the matter in her latest Instagram post. “This year has been incredibly isolating. Activities like church, travel, dinner, movies, sports- canceled. No longer seeing my friends smiling faces on set (all covered by masks) it all feels like [expletive],” she wrote.
“So many changes for so many people. So despite what you see on Instagram most people are struggling. When I get told ‘you must be an absent mother because you are not with your kids’ – smh wake up people. I hardly post anymore … and I def do not want to post my kids every freaking day to make it a contest of who’s a better parent 🤦♀️ f that.
“This doesn’t mean I’m not with my kids – it means the opposite – I am with them- I’m present. So stop parent shaming people, stop choosing sides when there is no side to choose. My point being – when you see stuff on here take it all with a grain of salt. There is a whole lot of Filters and fake smiles. I’ve been guilty of faking it too. We are all struggling – some of us are just better at ‘masking’ it.”
We’ll get to see Christina’s next chapter unfold, possibly on TV. Both Flip or Flop and Christina on the Coast have been renewed by HGTV.
