Ex-wife of CHRISTINA Haack’s fiancé Joshua Hall is ‘not shocked’ after the Flip or Flop star couple revealed they secretly dated for MONTHS while he was still legally married.

The Sun previously revealed that Joshua was married to a woman named Chelsea Baker on August 27, 2016 and moved out of their home in Austin, Texas on or around February 22, 2021.

Court documents obtained from Travis County show he filed divorce papers on March 10 and a final decree of divorce was signed on May 12, 2021.

Christina took to Instagram this week to share photos of her and Joshua, writing, “Nashville: March 2021 ⏩ March 2022,” showing them loving each other in Tennessee.

She also included some lyrics from Chris Stapleton’s hit, Start Over: “When no one wins, they’re afraid to lose. And the hard roads are the ones worth taking… Someday we’ll look back and we’ll smile and know every mile was worth it.”

The couple have had a whirlwind romance so far and revealed they got engaged in September 2021 while on a trip to Los Cabos, Mexico.

A friend of Joshua’s ex Chelsea told The Sun exclusively that she was “not shocked” by the revelation that he was dating Christina just days after moving out of the family home.

A second pal said: “I saw the message they were together in March but Chelsea are doing great. She’s a strong girl, rising above and moving on.”

The Sun previously revealed she was caught off guard when he left her and reunited with Christina, amid her divorce from ex-husband Ant Anstead, 42, which was finalized in June .

“It was a fairy tale wedding and they seemed like the perfect couple. He ended unexpectedly and she was heartbroken,” a source close to Chelsea said.

“For her new relationship to then play out in public and for them to be praised, it’s been really difficult.”

A second insider confirmed, “The breakup was not amicable, and all I can say is one person was very, very hurt.

“It was a beautiful wedding and it’s a sad situation.

“Chelsea is the kindest and most generous person you will ever know.


“She’s a hard worker, smart, stylish, who would do any favor you could ask for with a smile on her face.

“She’s a perfectly normal, down-to-earth girl who would be your friend five minutes after you met her.”

Joshua’s sister Jessica posted snaps of her family on their wedding day and then again the following year to mark their anniversary.

A wedding video of the ceremony, seen by The Sun, shows it took place at Newhall Mansion, a stunning Queen Anne-style home in Piru, California.

The clip reveals they said “yes” in the luxury venue’s gardens with pink and white flowers and fairy lights.

The photographs show Chelsea in a breathtaking white dress with her bridesmaids wearing dusty pink dresses, while Joshua and his groomsmen opted for gray suits and white shirts.


According to court documents, their marriage had become “unbearable because of discord or conflict of personalities between [Joshua] and [Chelsea] which destroys the legitimate purposes of the spousal relationship”, and has prevented any reasonable expectation of reconciliation.

The couple lived in a $1.3 million home in Austin, which Chelsea was ordered to vacate as the couple split their assets and put the property on the market, according to filings.

The three-bedroom, three-bathroom home was sold on August 13, according to online property records viewed by The Sun.

Court documents show Joshua was able to keep their pet dog, Stella, as well as a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle that was a gift from his father during the wedding.

Chelsea also walked away with a 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee and a pet dog named Shrek, according to filings.

Joshua and Chelsea had no children, while Christina shares two children with her ex and Flip or Flop co-star Tarek El Moussa; daughter Taylor, 11, and son Brayden, 6.

Christina also has a son, Hudson, 3, with her ex Ant, who has since moved on with Hollywood star Renee Zellweger.
