Ant shares his son with his ex-wife Christina Haack, whom he married three days before Christmas 2018 at their Newport Beach home.
They announced their split in September 2020 just after Hudson’s first birthday and have since waged a rancorous custody battle over their little boy.
Earlier this year Ant filed an emergency order for full custody of Hudson, while allowing Christina to have him every other weekend.
He accused her in court documents of being an unsafe mother who spent only ‘9 full days each month’ on average with Hudson and constantly paraded him around on social media when he was in her care, TMZ reported.

‘What Ant is doing deeply saddens me,’ Christina shot back to Us Weekly. ‘If this was really about Hudson, as he says, this should have been handled privately with a private judge or mediation, as myself and my attorney have suggested.’
A judge denied Ant’s emergency order, ruling he had provided an ‘insufficient showing’ of proof that the arrangement had to be changed immediately.
However the custody battle remains ongoing, and Ant and Christina are currently gearing up for a hearing scheduled for next month.
A few months ago a source told Us Weekly that Renee, who at 53 has no children of her own, ‘gets on so great with Hudson.’

The insider gushed: ‘She’s really bonded with him, and Ant loves how doting and caring she is with his kids when they’re all together.’
Meanwhile Christina, who rose to fame on the home renovation show Flip Or Flop with her first husband Tarek El Moussa, married realtor Joshua Hall this May.
Renee, who hails from Texas, was briefly married to the country singer Kenney Chesney in 2005 until they obtained an annulment after just four months.
She conducted a longer-lasting romance with musician Doyle Bramhall II, a frequent collaborator of Eric Clapton’s, from 2012 to 2019.
