During Saturday Night Live’s many decades of airing, the series had many cast members who didn’t last beyond a single season. On the other hand, there have been a handful of SNL stars who have stuck around for many years.
Thanks to his talent as a performer and his incredible comedic timing, Kenan Thompson became rich and the longest running Saturday Night Live star of all time. On top of that, even though Thompson has talked about leaving SNL, it might not happen anytime soon.
Unfortunately for Thompson, even though he starred on Saturday Night Live for nearly two decades, his marriage didn’t have the same kind of resistance. While Thompson still appears to be technically married, he and his wife have separated and he has filed for divorce.
Even though Thompson and his ex-wife are no longer a couple, they will still be part of each other’s lives since they share children. With that in mind, it’s fascinating to learn more about Thompson’s wife and her supposed connection to the mob.
Who is Kenan Thompson’s wife, Christina Evangeline?
On November 11, 2011, Kenan Thompson and Christina Evangeline got married, meaning their special day was 11/11/11. After the couple walked down the aisle, they welcomed two daughters into the world in 2014 and 2018.
Since Evangeline married, she is best known as Thompson’s wife. Despite this, Evangeline is her own person who has led quite a fascinating life.
In all honesty, Evangeline’s love life has been interesting, especially since she started dating Kenan Thompson’s longtime co-star Chris Redd.
Actually born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Evangeline moved to New York where she launched her career. According to what Thompson has said in interviews, Evangeline has worked as a model, actress, and interior designer over the years.
In addition to Evangeline’s past careers, she co-founded a company named Evermore.
After going through a period of grieving after a loss, Evanegline spoke to some of her therapist friends. After realizing how much it helped, Evangeline started a business designed to provide others with someone to talk to at some point in their grieving lives.
Kenan Thompson’s wife has an amazing family
Since Kenan Thompson became a star, his fans have had the chance to learn more about him with each interview. On the other hand, Thompson’s wife, Christina Evangeline, was never a big star like her husband.
Luckily for anyone who wants to know more about Evangeline’s life, Thompson’s ex-wife is active on social media. On Evangeline’s Instagram account, she repeatedly revealed fascinating information about her family.
On September 11, 2017, Evangeline took to Instagram to write about her grandfather’s role in building the Twin Towers. Additionally, Evangeline wrote about how her grandfather witnessed what happened to the Twin Towers in 2001.
“This is my grandfather Joe. (My father’s father.) He was involved in erecting the twin towers. His company was part of a group of 5 companies that launched them into the sky; he was also in front them to watch them fall.”
Continuing, Evangeline wrote about her father’s involvement in efforts to clean up the aftermath of what happened on September 11, 2001.
“My dad naturally helped with the cleaning and restoration, but not without bringing in a camera to take pictures for me, lol.”
On May 3, 2018, Evangeline returned to Instagram to write about her family. This time Evangeline wrote about something that happened at her baptism.
“It was 1989, somewhere in New York. My mom was at the reception for my christening when two men approached her, handed her an envelope full of cash, and gave her their blessings. Mom asks to my father who they were.”
“Dad says ‘Oh, John Gotti and Sammy Gravano. Also, we just got word that the valet and caterers have been replaced by Feds.’
For those unfamiliar with the names Gotti and Gravano, both men were involved in organized crime for many years. As a result, if they gave money to Christina Evangeline’s mother when she was baptized, it’s amazing.
Of course, assuming every detail of Evangeline’s post happened exactly as described, that doesn’t necessarily mean that any members of her family were involved in anything fishy.
