Kenan Thompson has been a part of the NBC sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live since 2003, making him the show’s longest-serving cast member. Kenan, an NBC sitcom that premiered in 2021, is where he currently stars. It was recently revealed that Kenan Thompson and Christina Evangeline have decided to divorce after more than a decade of marriage.
After nearly 15 years together, including 11 years as a married couple, SNL star Kenan Thompson and his wife Christina Evangeline have made the difficult decision to end their marriage. According to sources close to the couple, they’ve been separated for over a year and are co-parenting their two daughters Georgia and Gianna successfully.
Kenan has been in Los Angeles working on his new show, “Kenan,” while Christina has been in New York, according to TMZ. Kenan and Christina have yet to file for divorce, but it is expected to happen soon. According to reports, the two simply grew apart, but they are still great friends. In 2011, they married at an aquarium in Atlanta.
In his namesake NBC sitcom, Thompson, who last year appeared in the Home Alone franchise entry Home Sweet Home Alone, plays a widowed father of two daughters. In a February 2021 Tonight Show interview, the history-making SNL star joked that Evangeline “didn’t love” the widower aspect of the plot.
“She was like, ‘Oh, so I’m dead?’” Thompson said. “But, I mean, she was just giving me a hard time. But I was like, ‘Yeah…it’s not you, you know what I mean? It’s a show. It’s a different thing.’” Around the same time, in another Kenan-promoting interview, this time on the Today show, the comedian and actor explained that the NBC series only mirrors a portion of his reality.
“Everything else is kind of creative liberty, if you will, like my relationship with my father-in-law is actually really wonderful and my wife, thank God she’s still with me.”
The couple has yet to publicly announce their divorce. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
