Louise Anstead rose to fame after she married the renowned TV presenter and motor specialist Ant Anstead (Anthony Richard Anstead). Often referred to as Louise Ann Herbert, she was with the actor since their days as high school students and then they got married in the mid-2000s. Unfortunately, the union came to an end barely more than a decade later.
Louise Anstead left the limelight after her divorce from the English television presenter in 2017. She and Ant Anstead had two children Amelie and Archie before they separated.
How old is she?
Louise Anstead was born on July 30, 1980. She is currently 43 years old.
How Louise Anstead met her ex-husband
Anstead’s former husband started his career as a police officer before he later ventured into his television career. He is also a motor specialist, car builder, and artist. He is best known for co-presenting the channel 4 automotive show ‘For the Love of Cars’ with Philip Glenister.
Before all the fame and even his carer as a cop, one person that was by his side was Louise Anstead. The pair first met while they were both in college. They dated for almost eight years before they got engaged. In their sixth year together, they welcomed their first child, Amelie in 2003.
The college sweethearts eventually tied knots in 2005 in a low-key ceremony that was attended by their close friends and family only. After a year they had their second child, Archie.
Louise Anstead was rarely spotted with her husband as his fame grew as a TV personality. She was only seen with him during major events. The couple kept everything about their marriage private.
In 2017, rumors started circulating that Louise Anstead and Ant Anstead were having problems in their marriage. The latter went ahead to clarify the rumors on social media. He shared in a tweet that he and Louise Anstead were no longer together.
In spite of the separation, the former couple stated that they had made plans to prioritize their children. Even though the reason for their divorce was never mentioned, there were speculations that Ant Anstead was unfaithful. Neither Louise nor her ex-husband confirmed the rumors though.
Her life after the divorce
Since the divorce, Louise Anstead has withdrawn from the spotlight. Even though her Instagram handle is private, it seems she has a man in her life judging from her display picture. She also goes by the name Louise Herbert. It is said that she currently lives in England with her husband and two children who regularly fly to California to visit their father.
Shortly after the divorce, Ant Anstead on the other hand announced his involvement with Christina El Moussa. According to reports, he started dating the television personality in October 2017, and on December 22, 2018, they tied the knot at Newport Beach, California. Christina El Moussa was previously married to Tarek El Moussa from 2009 to 2018, and they had two children together.
After Christiana married the reality TV star, she dropped her ex-husband’s name and started using ‘Anstead’. The couple also welcomed their first child, Hudson London Anstead together in September 2019.
The seemingly-blissful marriage between Ant and Christiana sadly ended before their second anniversary in September 2020. The latter took to social media to announce their decision to separate. Ironically, Ant revealed it was not his decision but hers alone. He added that he never gave up on their relationship but his second ex-wife did.
Barely nine months after his divorce, Ant was rumored to be dating an American actress, Renee Zellweger. The two met on the set of Ant’s new automotive overhaul show.
They were spotted together in a couple of places even kissing and holding hands. The age gap between Ant and his newfound love is almost a decade. Ant made their relationship official on social media after he shared a black and white selfie of him and Zellweger. The lovers have been very private with their lives since they started the relationship.
Ant and Zellweger made their first public appearance together at a gala event for Radford Motors in Santa Ana on August 7, 2021.
His ex-wife Christiana was also rumored to be dating a man named Joshua Hall as they were spotted together in July 2021. They later confirmed their relationship and made it official on Instagram.
Is her daughter an athlete?
Taking a glance at Amelie Anstead’s Instagram account, it is obvious that she is a fitness enthusiast. She is often seen sharing photos of herself working out or in the gym. More so, Louise and Ant’s first child plays both rugby and netball.
Amelie is currently 19 years old. She is very vocal about her gluten allergy and she always shares healthy recipes and travel tips for others like her on her social media page. According to reports, the teenager has learned to manage multiple allergies in two separate countries.
Amelie uses her Instagram to raise food allergy awareness. Amelie Anstead is often referred to as her father’s best friend.
