Kenan Thompson of Saturday Night Live and his wife Christina Evangeline have called it quits after 11 years of marriage. The couple married in 2011 and have two daughters, Georgia Marie (7) and Gianna Michelle (3).
TMZ obtained the information from sources close to the couple. Kenan and Christina have been separated for more than a year, according to the outlet.
Who Is Christina Evangeline?
Christina Evangeline is a 33-year-old model, actress, and interior designer. Unlike her wildly popular ex-partner, the mother of two prefers to keep a low profile and avoid the spotlight for the most part.
According to her IMDb, she played a pageant parent in the 2015 comedy short Mini Supreme. Christina also keeps her interior design business off of social media. The actress currently has over 20,000 Instagram followers and frequently posts photos of her children and family on the social media platform.

Kenan, 43, and his wife Christina, who is ten years his junior, have reportedly been separated for a year, but neither has filed for divorce. Over the last year, the two are said to have co-parented their daughters successfully. The couple dated for four years before marrying in November 2011 at Atlanta’s Georgia Aquarium.
Despite Kenan’s celebrity, they kept their marriage and personal lives relatively private. However, in an interview with The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon last year, the actor discussed his wife’s initial reaction to his sitcom Kenan.
How Did The Couple Get Together?
Kenan and Christina met through industry connections, as is common in many showbiz romances. Danny Estrada, a talent manager, was the one who first introduced the two.
A source close to the couple told Us Weekly in 2011: “[They’re] very happy.” They’d been living together as a couple and were looking forward to sharing their experiences with close friends. She was thrilled and a beautiful bride.”
Kenan and Christina had their first child, Georgia Marie, in June 2014, and their second child, Gianna Michelle, in August 2018.
