Selling Sunset is one of Netflix's most popular reality shows, and the breakout stars of the hit series have been reveling in the spotlight ever since the show premiered in 2019.

Christine Quinn, one of the stars of the show, recently revealed that she's expecting her first child with her husband, Christian Richard. 

"We happily can share the news that we are going to be parents!" Quinn said in an exclusive statement to People on Feb. 17.

"I'm a firm believer in manifesting my dreams and 'til this day, have always done so. This beautiful pregnancy was manifested," she added. "We knew that we wanted to create a family in 2021 and I envisioned myself pregnant as I did my daily meditations." 

Who is Christine Quinn's husband, Christian Richard?

Quinn was the breakout star of the first season of Selling Sunset, a Netflix reality show about the Oppenheim Group, a high-end real estate first in LA.

Since she wrapped the first season of filming, she met the love of her life, Christian Richard, a tech industry titan and the couple is now married. He was featured on the show as the pair planned their wedding. 

Quinn shows off her gigantic engagement ring in an Instagram post. 

How did they meet?

There are two origin stories for this couple.

Castmate Mary Fitzgerald said that he was a client and he'd been dating someone else when he met Quinn.

But the two "just clicked" in Fitzgerald's recounting o the tale. Only that's not exactly the sequence of events.

Quinn cleared up the details in a recent interview where she said, "My girlfriend went on a date with him and she's like, ‘Hey, I went on a date with this guy who I really don't like. I know you're single; you may want to go out with him.’ So I went on a date with him after she did". 

What does Christian Richard do for a living?

All Quinn says about her husband's job is that he's "big in the tech world," he has a degree from MIT and that he's now retried.

She doesn't say much more than that about his job except that he's a software engineer and a businessman and we can't find him on LinkedIn to see what his professional background is.

He doesn't have public social media account and Quinn, though a prolific Instagram user, hardly posts pics of her man. Whatever he does, he's made enough money that a $5 million home is in his price range. 

He's not a reality TV natural.

Quinn says that she never told him she was on a reality show when they started dating.

It was only when fans were coming up to her in public that he figured out there was more to her career than just selling fancy houses.

She asked if he would be willing to be on it and he agreed, but he's not the typical reality TV star.

"He's really, really shy, but decided to do it for me," she explained to reporters. "He's on the show quite a bit and, bless his heart, he tries, but [filming] is a really awkward thing. It’s not organic in any way. It's not reality in any way.”

On the Season 3 finale of Selling Sunset, Richard and Quinn tied the knot in a gorgeous goth-inspired ceremony. She even wore a stunning black dress!

Quinna shared the news with her followers in Aug. 2020 via Instagram, and spoke about her secret wedding to the tabloids. 

"I waited to share details from our special day until now," Quinn said at the time. "We wanted to get married in December to start off the New Year [as husband and wife]. And a winter wonderland theme with a wicked twist is memorable forever."

On Feb. 17, Christine Quinn revealed she's pregnant with the couple's first child.

"We are so grateful to be expecting our first child," she shared. "I'm so ready for what this next chapter holds and cannot wait to be a mom!"

The Netflix star also revealed her pregnancy cravings, which include "fresh fruit, pizza with ranch (but not just any pizza — it must be Pizza Hut pizza!) and tons of Dr. Pepper."

She also spoke about having kids with Richard in the past, saying:

"I want two, I would love two boys. I can’t even imagine, like, trying to tame a little Christine. I always wanted two little boys just because I’m actually like quite a tomboy myself. I grew up playing sports, I love cars and I fly airplanes. I love all the boys stuff, I always have. I was really athletic growing up, I ride horses."

Congrats to the parents-to-be!
