No, this isn't an SNL sketch.
Nearly six months after reports emerged of Kenan Thompson and wife Christina Evangeline's quiet separation, ET can confirm she has a new man in her life — and he's someone Thompson knows well.
According to a source, Evangeline is dating Chris Redd, Thompson's longtime Saturday Night Live co-star, who also played his brother on his canceled sitcom, Kenan.
"Chris and Christina Evangeline are dating. The two know each other through SNL since Chris worked with her ex, Kenan Thompson," a source tells ET. "They started dating after Kenan and Christina split."
As for how the new romance is going, the source notes, "They are having a lot of fun and really get along well." TMZ was first to report the news of them dating.
