Mark Hampton Recently Tied The Knot With Christina
In October of 2021, Mark and Christina said “I do.” Just two months after she had announced she was pregnant with their first child, they made the happy announcement. Christina described their first wedding photo as “Mr. and Mrs.” Below a rose arch, the pair took some selfies.
Mark was more relaxed in his attire, wearing a button-down shirt without a tie, whereas Christina opted for a collared top. She wore pretty dangling earrings and her hair was pulled back into a low ponytail. She then added, “Also Mr. and Mrs.” to the description of her second photo. Simply too sugary!

Ricci and Hampton, who have been married for a year, tied the knot in October 2021, two months after the Now and Then actress announced that she was pregnant with the couple’s first child. It was reported that the couple’s daughter Cleopatra, or Cleo, would be joining the family in December of 2021.
Cleopatra Ricci Hampton was born, and her mother captioned a snapshot of her sleeping with the words, “My heart has erupted.” Both Ricci and the baby are doing well; the family is currently resting after a busy morning.
