Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, it is known that Christina has been married since 2015, but there is no information about her husband available to the public. She likes to keep that aspect of her life away from the spotlight, and the only indication of her marriage was a picture of her in a bride’s outfit in one of her sister’s social media accounts.
One of the reasons why information about her is scarce is due to her lack of any online presence. She does not have any accounts on major social media websites, although according to some fans, she once had online accounts but eventually removed them due to the negative attitude of a lot of people. There are a few bios and profiles of her online, with some stating that she even does voice acting work. Her outdated LinkedIn profile states that she resides in the New York area, though the profile has not been updated since her days at “Mystery Hunters”.
