CHRISTINA Haack’s fiancé Joshua Hall’s ex-wife is ‘not shocked’ after the Flip or Flop star couple revealed they dated in secret for MONTHS while he was still legally married.
The HGTV star first stepped out in July with the Texas-bred ex-cop, but now reveals that they had been dating since March.
The Sun previously revealed Joshua was married to a woman named Chelsea Baker on August 27, 2016, and he moved out of their home in Austin, Texas on or about February 22, 2021.
Travis County Court records show that he filed divorce papers March 10, and that a final decree was signed May 12, 2021.
Christina posted photos of Joshua and Christina on Instagram this week. “Nashville: March 2021 ⏩ March 2022,”Tennessee is a great place to show your love.
She also included lyrics taken from Chris Stapleton’s Starting Over. “When nobody wins afraid of losing. And the hard roads are the ones worth choosing… Some day we’ll look back and smile and know it was worth every mile.”
The pair have had a whirlwind romance so far and revealed they were engaged in September 2021 during a trip to Los Cabos, Mexico.
Chelsea, a friend from Joshua’s ex, exclusively told The Sun that she is “not shocked”The revelation that he was actually dating Christina, just days after he moved out of his family home, is a great example of how he behaved.
A second pal said: “I saw the post that they were together in March, Chelsea is doing good though. She’s a strong girl, rising above it and moving on.”
The Sun previously revealed she was left blindsided when he left her and got together with Christina, amid her divorce from ex-husband Ant Anstead, 42, which was finalized in the June.
“It was a fairytale wedding and they seemed like the perfect couple. He ended it out of the blue and she was left heartbroken,”A source close to Chelsea stated it.
“For his new relationship to then play out in public and for them to be praised, it’s been really tough.”
Another insider confirmed that the split was not amicable. All I can say is that one person was hurt.
“It was a lovely wedding, and it’s sad.
“Chelsea is the most generous, kind person I know.
“She is hardworking, smart, and classy. She would happily do any favor that you might ask her with a smile on your face.
“She’s a totally 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 from their wedding day, and again the following year to mark their anniversary.
The Sun has a video of the wedding that shows it taking place at Newhall Mansion in Piru, California.
This clip shows them saying “I do” in the garden at the luxurious venue with pink and White flowers and fairy lights.
Photographs show Chelsea in a stunning white gown, with her bridesmaids in blush pink dresses. Joshua and his groomsmen chose grey suits and white shirts.
