Sean Astin's Married Life With Christine Harrell-A Teenage Romance Turned Into Beautiful Relationship
Sean Astin is married to the gorgeous Christine Harrell. The couple tied the knot on 1st July 1992. Their first meeting arrived a year earlier when Sean was just 19 while Christine was 21. They dated for a year before they embraced each other as life partners.
The couple shares three children together; three cute daughters. Their eldest daughter Alexandra Astin was born on 27th November 1996. They welcomed their second child 6 years later on 6th August 2002 named Elizabeth Astin. Their youngest daughter Isabella Astin was born on 22nd July 2005.
When Christine pregnant with Isabella, her labor arrived prematurely which created a cause for concern. She was born much earlier than the expected date. However, thankfully she turned out to be a healthy princess.
Sean's three daughters are not into acting like their father, but they have all enjoyed cameo appearances with their celebrity dad in The Lord of The Rings.
Meanwhile, the pair is together for nearly three decades and they still appear to carry the same spark they had as young lovers. The entire family looks absolutely adorable together.
