Christina’s Early Background
Christina Evangeline was born on 24th March 1989 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Also through her occasional posts about her dad with caption like “You are voice I always hear in my head” suggest that her father is no more. The comments from her near ones on the post also validates the point.
Her grandfather Joe on the other hand ran a construction company that built a number of buildings in New York City. According to Evangeline, her grandfather’s company was one of the five company to raise the twin towers into sky.
Christina father ran a construction company so we can only assume that her dad had ties with the American crime syndicate. But we’re just shooting in the dark as it’s mere speculation.
In one Instagram post, she shared a story about her childhood.
“My mom was at the reception for my Christening when two men walked up to her, handed her a envelope full of cash and gave their blessings.
Mom asks my dad who they were.
Dad says “Oh, John Gotti and Sammy Gravano.
Also, we were just informed that the valet and caterers been replaced with federal agents.”
This probably suggests he had some affiliation with the group!
Christina Evangeline might be an unknown figure to many and maybe she prefers living that way. The wife of the famous comedian has managed to keep many pieces of information about her life away from the media including details regarding her family, educational history, childhood, and siblings.

A year later, the engaged couple walked down the aisle in November 2011 in the presence of close friends and family. The wedding was held at the Georgia aquarium in the Arctic room and was hosted by hip-hop artist and actor Nick Cannon.
A close source said, “[They’re] very happy. They’ve lived together as a couple and were excited to share the moments with close friends.”
