Like many Hollywood romances, Kenan and Christina met through industry connections. Talent manager Danny Estrada introduced the pair, and they later married in November 2011.

The comedian and his estranged wife share two daughters together. Daughter Georgia Marie was born in June 2014, followed by Gianna Michelle in August 2018.
Even if Kenan is still very much in the spotlight, he puts fatherhood first. “I think the biggest wake-up call is how immediate it is,” the former All That star told People of becoming a parent.
“One day you’re not a dad and then the next moment you are. You’re just a dad from that point on,” Kenan continued. “And definitely, my coolness just got sucked right out of me. I didn’t know … I didn’t even feel it, but I just immediately started wearing black socks and shorts and just being really corny at stores and over-asking questions about items that are super obvious and in my face.”
His daughters were also in attendance in August 2022 when the former Nickelodeon star received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
“Wow! Ok sorry it took me a minute to process the fact that I received the 2,728th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday, surrounded by friends, family, and fans,” he captioned a series of photos, including one of him and his girls, shared via Instagram on August 11.
The last time Christina posted anything of Kenan on Instagram was in August 2020. The mother of two shared a sweet clip of their daughter Georgia joining Kenan as a judge on America’s Got Talent. “OMG, this child could tell you about the life story of any person who’s ever been on the show,” Christina gushed at the time.
