Exes Christina Haack and Ant Anstead are getting into the holiday spirit with son Hudson after reportedly settling their custody battle.

The former couple both posted sweet snaps with the 3-year-old via Instagram Wednesday.

“Kid loves being behind the camera,” Haack, 39, captioned a photo of the little one taking a picture of herself and husband Josh Hall in front of a Christmas tree.

Anstead’s social media upload also featured a Christmas tree as he showed off Hudson’s decorating skills.

“Tis the season 🎄,” the “Wheeler Dealers” host, 43, wrote alongside the slideshow.

“Having grown in the freezing UK I Still find it wild that a California Christmas tree compliments a warm beach sunset!” the car mechanic continued. “Temple so cosy and festive, and Hudzo always the willing helper 🥰 x.”

Earlier this month, Anstead and Haack avoided their March 2023 court date by settling custody of Hudson, according to People.

While the duo will “continue to have [the] joint legal and joint physical custody” they agreed on last year, they did update their holiday schedule.

Haack will spend Christmas with Hudson this month as she gets him from Dec. 23 through 25 for even-numbered years, as well as the week of his school vacation.

The “Flip or Flop” alum and Anstead each also co-parent two more children with past partners.

Anstead shares daughter Amelie, 19, and son Archie, 16, with Louise Anstead, while Haack previously welcomed daughter Taylor, 12, and son Brayden, 7, with Tarek El Moussa.

El Moussa’s wife, Heather Rae Young, told “Today” show viewers last month that they strive to keep “drama aside.” Haack and Anstead, however, have had a tumultuous year of co-parenting.

In April, the car builder filed for emergency custody of Hudson and accused Haack of putting their child at medical risk. His request was denied later that same month.

Anstead subsequently alleged that his ex-wife uses the little one as a “puppet” on social media in a September court declaration.

Haack claimed in her rebuttal that Hudson wasn’t “forced” to participate in her Instagram ads and now refrains from showing Hudson’s face to her followers.

“I CHOSE and choose not to post Hudson because I was exhausted with Instagram being used as a tool against me,” she explained in November.

Anstead, who has been slammed by trolls for continuing to reveal Hudson’s face, clarified in October that he is only against his son being “exploited” for brand deals and will keep sharing family photos.

The “For the Love of Cars” alum, who was married to Haack from 2018 to 2020, added, “His childhood is not for sale.”
