Well, stick with this Christopher Fernandez Bio to learn all about him.
Meet Christopher Fernandez, Jackie Sorkin Husband
Christopher Fernandez and Jackie Sorkin were in a relationship before 2004. The two went on to tie the knot before 2011, and fast forward to almost a decade, the love birds were still in love more than ever.
However, it hasn’t always been gumdrops and cotton candy for the couple. With both struggling with their careers initially, the duo has been through a lot of hardships and tough times.
According to Jackie, she once attempted to launch a retail fashion business but ended up with busted credit and thousands of dollars in unsold inventory in her garage. Later, even once she achieved some success, competitors tried to copy her idea. “I’ve had everything taken from me,” she shared. No wonder, she has become fiercely protective now and earned her nickname, “the spastic Chihuahua.”
But despite the hardships and separate careers, the pair never fell apart. To strengthen their relationship, Christopher even agreed to move with Jackie to California, after she decided to move there for her job.
As time passed on, things began to stabilize for the married couple, and by 2011 they were already reeling in interviews and promotions. That year they even welcomed their second kid named Christian George (dubbed Lord Lollipop) in November.
Sharing the happiness of Christian’s arrival, Christopher tweeted, “Our baby boy arrived today at 8:09 am, weighing 8 lb and 2 ounces. “lord lollipop” is in town. We are so happy, the best gift ever!”
Previously, the pair welcomed their first child Isabella (nicknamed the Heiress to the Empire) in 2011.
