The Saturday Night Live alum Kenan Thompson has filed for divorce from his wife Christina Evangeline. Kenan has taken the next step in separation from his wife of 11 years. Recently, he filed the divorce papers.
Kenan filed the divorce papers last month
According to the reports of TMZ, Thompson filed the divorce documents last month in NYC to make his announced split from Christina Evangeline all legal. The news regarding the couple’s separation came out in April this year and at that time it was reported they were successfully co-parenting their daughters Georgia and Gianna.
The sources close to the former couple have told the media outlet that Kenan and Christina have decided to share the custody of their two kids. The pair is still living very close to each other in New York City to make the custody arrangement a tad bit easier for themselves as well as for both of their girls.
When we ponder over the main reason behind the separation of Kenan and Christina, it was stated that the former pair simply grew apart over the last couple of years.
Kenan and Christina tied the knot in 2011
Thompson and Evangeline said their vows way back in 2011. The two of them got married on November 11, 2011, at an aquarium in Atlanta. At the time, a source told Us Weekly, “[They’re] very happy. They’ve lived together as a couple and were excited to share the moments with close friends.”
The duo welcomed their first child, a daughter named Georgia into the world in 2014. Their second child, Gianna joined them earthside in the year 2018.
Soon after the arrival of his youngest child, Thompson spilled the beans on his personal life to Us and said “Georgia is obsessed with her. She’s always calling her ‘my baby.’ She’s like, ‘My baby. Good morning my little baby.’ She’s always wanting to hold her.”
The Kenan & Kel star went on gush over his beautiful family and further added, “Georgia’s busy right now. She’s got school. So we miss her throughout the day, but when she gets home, we go to dinner or something. That’s always nice.”
Kenan stated that becoming a dad was everything to him
During an earlier interaction with Fatherly in 2021, Thompson talked about how being a father was everything to him. At that time, he said, “I stopped my bachelor life and just was spending a lot of time by myself because they say, when you stop looking, you will find it.”
Kenan continued, “And then I met my wife and we had the same ideology. We wanted to get married and we wanted to start a family and keep a family. It’s my daily focus — is everybody taken care of? And then my other focus is, how am I taking care of everybody. That’s what probably drives me to work like such a maniac. I want to personally satisfy the need to provide like that.”
Maybe Kenan Thompson and his wife Christina Evangeline were meant to be but not meant to last. Don’t forget to stay tuned with us for the latest updates from the world of showbiz.
