"For those of you who don’t know me (or think you know me), let me reintroduce myself. I hate crowds, I love traveling, all things spiritual, the ocean and deep one-on-one conversations," Anstead wrote Saturday in a lengthy Instagram post. "I never thought about being on TV. I wanted to be a sports agent like Jerry Maguire."
Christina is also keeping things "real" about her struggles with her second marriage to Ant Anstead.
"I never thought I would have one divorce let alone two. I never thought I would have two baby daddies, but sometimes life throws us curve balls," she wrote. "Instead of getting stuck in these 'setbacks,' I choose to look at these challenges as opportunities to grow."
While Christina may make life look effortless on camera, she struggles behind the scenes with anxiety.
"I live in a state of anxiousness," Christina revealed. "And I'm so used to it that when it's not there, I tend to feel a void and hop into something that causes the feeling I'm used to. This can be good and bad. And it's one of the things I'm working on breaking the pattern of. Sometimes anxiety and pursuit of new dreams leads me down amazing paths, other times it leaves me feeling lost and in a state of fight or flight/or crying in my closet."
While Christina is speaking out, Ant is keeping things close to the vest. Though he finally broke his silence about the split over weekend, he didn't open up as much as his former partner.
"Anyone who really knows me knows that I don’t like to share private matters publicly," Ant wrote Saturday on Instagram. "I have remained silent while holding on to hope. I never gave up on us. I pray Christina’s decision brings her happiness."
