We are grateful for each other and as always, our children will remain our priority. We appreciate your support and ask for privacy for us and our family as we navigate the future,” she wrote on her Instagram at the time. As for what went wrong, a source told People at the time that the couple started to have issues in their relationship after they welcomed their son. “After the baby, they started having conflicts,” the insider said, adding that christina felt “lonely and unhappy.”
The source continued, “Christina found it difficult to balance everything…Their marriage was struggling.”

In 2017, he came the new cohost of Wheelers Dealers. So, yeah, the man knows his cars.
