'Selling Sunset': Who is Christine Quinn's husband? Here's everything you need to know about Christian Richard
Christine Quinn knows how to serve up the drama and she certainly did so in the first and second season of the hit Netflix show 'Selling Sunset'. Now with the show's return for a Season 3, we expect no less from her. Everything is larger than life about her, including her choice of a man who made an appearance in the show's sophomore outing.
In the Season 2 premiere, she stepped out of a private jet that just carried her and a mystery man back from a vacation after which she was seen making her way to the office directly, in true boss-style. It was at that point that she revealed that the man accompanying her was her fiance Christian Richard. In spite of the latter's shy personality, fans were able to garner enough information about him as he appeared on the season, however, there's more to him than what meets viewers' eyes.
Christian is a retired software engineer by profession. "Christian is big in the tech world. He went to MIT, and he’s a software engineer and has worked for multiple companies, multiple development projects. And he’s retired," Quinn said while waxing poetic about him in the Season 2 premiere. Christian speaks selectively but his work and his laurels definitely do the talking. Even though he is retired, he made a lot of money back when he was working, his estimated net worth is $20M.
This gives him the leverage to cultivate his tastes for a lavish life, similar to Quinn. The two started jetting across the world within just months of dating in his private jet. He also purchased a $5M home for Christine, a property she always dreamt of owning. The couple were on a holiday in Switzerland when the house came on the market and they decided to go see it once they were back as Quinn was excited about the fact that there was a great price reduction on the 6,000 square foot mansion.
While stepping onto the property in person, she realized that it was the same house she had a listing on years ago. Speaking about it later on in Season 2, she said, "I would sit in that open house every Sunday and would picture myself sitting in that house, getting coffee with my husband, and I now live in the house that I envisioned myself living in."
Quinn and Christian look like they make a great couple, but it almost never happened and it would have been the former's best friend who could've ended up with the multi-millionaire. Quinn explained in a Nylon interview, "One of my best friends went on a date with this guy, but wasn't into him. She was like, 'He's not for me, he's really intelligent, he's talking about the economy and Bitcoin.' I was like, 'Okay, I'll meet him!'". Christian didn't know he was dating a famous personality.
Quinn hadn't revealed it to him that she was a star on a Netflix show because she had very low expectations about the outcome of her presence on the show. All she told him was that she worked in real estate and he only became aware that she was much more than just that when they were stopped on the streets while they were holidaying abroad. "In Tokyo and the Bahamas, people started saying, 'Oh my God, I love you. I love your show,'" said Quinn in a Refinery29 interview.
Christian proposed to Quinn on Valentine's Day in 2019 and their engagement party was documented in Season 2. Quinn has been engaged thrice before but each time she refrained from walking down the aisle due to uncertainty, however, with Christian it was different. The couple married on December 15, 2019, in a gothic winter-wonderland-themed wedding at a cathedral in downtown LA in front of 75 guests. Hopefully, viewers will be able to witness their celebration in one of the episodes this season.
