Christina Hendricks and her ex-husband Geoffrey Arend
Christina Hendricks was previously involved in a romantic relationship with Geoffrey Arend, known for his role in the film 500 Days of Summer.
They are one of those couples in Hollywood who don’t seem to have much trouble in their married lives. They were far away from any negative news and rumors. But, unfortunately, a healthy and long-lasting marriage isn’t immune to separation either.
Christina and Geoffrey got married on October 11, 2009. Before they tied the knot, the pair had already been dating for years. So, they knew each other’s best and worst sides because they had been together for such a long time.
The two were first introduced to one another by Christina’s costar in Mad Men, Vincent Kartheiser, in 2007. The attraction towards each other was instant, and they were dating not long after their first encounter. And their relationship went well until they finally decided to say their vows.
“Geoffrey walked in, and I was like, ‘Who is this guy?’… He just came in with this very high energy. He was just charming, funny, and very magnetic,” expressed the Life as We Know It actress to Daily Mail.
Right after the wedding, Geoffrey also expressed how happy he was getting married to the love of his life. He told that in his interview with People.
“Having the ring on my finger makes me realize this is the person I’ve chosen for the rest of my life,” told Geoffrey. He went on, “So everything that was a small little problem that could have turned into a fight just disappeared. We’re both very happy.”
Do Christina Hendricks and Geoffrey Arend have kids?
Their marriage lasted for ten years. It’s pretty long, remembering people got married and then divorced so fast in the movie industry nowadays. However, the two were never interested in adding a new member to their family. In other words, to have children.
“We’ve decided that we are not interested in having children. But, it seems like it’s expected that you’d want to have kids,” told Christina in her interview with Health back in 2014.
But, they do have one dog that they loved so much, which they called Zouzou. So, they shared the dog as well after they split.
Christina then added that she preferred to have a dog (and she was planning even to add more dogs) than having children. Having a puppy is Christina and Geoffrey’s idea to build a family, she stated. She also said that she already felt like a mom whenever she cooked for her friends.
The Real Reason of Christina and Geoffrey’s Divorce and All the Bittersweet Message from Them
Geoffrey and Christina didn’t explain much about the reason for their split, but people praised how they two handled the split. They still showed maturity and respect for each other, even though the divorce must’ve been so hard for them.
However, the couple did mention that it was due to “irreconcilable differences,” but that’s it, they didn’t give further explanations regarding that.
Christina was the one that filed for divorce.
In October 2019, the day when they officially got a divorce, Christina posted a short statement written by her and Geoffrey on her Instagram. The statement goes, “We joined our two amazing families, had countless laughs, made wonderful friends, and were blessed with incredible opportunities. Today we take our next step together but on separate paths. We will always be grateful for the love we’ve shared and will always work together to raise our two beautiful dogs.”
The bittersweet caption didn’t stop there. Christina also added, “We will be taking time to rediscover ourselves in this transition, and we thank you for your patience and support in giving us the space to do so.”
The goodbyes always become the saddest and hardest part of every relationship, indeed.
Geoffrey posted something on his Instagram as well. He uploaded a photo of himself with their two dogs, which means he felt so grateful to still have his lovely dogs by his side in this tough phase. He wrote a caption, “Anytime you’re feeling low, bookend yourself to dogs. Can’t recommend it enough”. Yes, Geoffrey, we agree with that.
Though Geoffrey and Christina were very private about the details of their married life, the two still share happy moments and their movie promotions on Instagram. But, we cannot see too much information revealed from both of their accounts.
With one million followers, Christina loves to post some pictures of herself that look pretty and cheerful. Geoffrey is also the same. But, another thing that they have in common is they also love to post pictures of their joyful moments with the dogs. So, yes, even though the marriage fails, the dogs still remind them of happy times.
