In news that’s bound to make you feel old, former Nickelodeon star Kenan Thompson is going to be dad. TMZ reports the Saturday Night Live star and his wife, Christina Evangeline, are expecting their first child.
Christina, a model, is said to be a little more than four months along and the parents-to-be already know if they’re having a son or a daughter. We’ll put it like this: If Kenan and Kel ever decide to get back together, it’ll be with a new female fan in the audience.
The 35-year-old actor and his lady love were wed in November 2011 and, TMZ says, have been trying to get pregnant for “a long time.” They married in the Arctic Room at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta with fellow child actor made good Nick Cannon (and Kenan’s former All That co-star) on hand to play DJ. Hey, Moroccan and Monroe, you guys ready for a new playmate?
At the time of the couple’s wedding, a source told Us Weekly, “They’re very happy. They’ve lived together as a couple and were excited to share the moments with close friends.” Kenan and Christina were introduced by talent manager Danny Estrada, who we hope is ready to fulfill godfather duties if so called upon.
Congratulations to Kenan and Christina on this happy news!
