- Tarek El Moussa (2009-2018) – Christina first met Tarek El Moussa after she had started working in the real estate industry after college. They got married in 2009. In 2010, she gave birth to their first child, a daughter Taylor Reese El Moussa. After Tarek was diagnosed with Stage II thyroid cancer and was asked to undergo radiation treatment in 2013, they decided to preserve his sperms and use it for in-vitro fertilization. The first attempt was unsuccessful and in the second, she suffered a miscarriage. In what was their last attempt, she became pregnant in late 2014. In August 2015, Christina gave birth to their son, Brayden James El Moussa. When she returned to work after the birth of their son, she started getting overwhelmed, which caused tension between them. One incident in May 2016 proved to be the breaking point for them. He had stormed out of their house with a gun after getting into an argument with Christina. She contacted police over concerns of him being suicidal. When police found him, he claimed that he had gone for a hike and had taken the gun to protect him from animals. In 2017, she filed for divorce and it was finalized in January 2018.

She officially started dating him in May 2016. They decided to end their relationship in March 2017.
- Nate Thompson (2017) – Just after her breakup from Gary Anderson, Christina was linked with NHL player Nate Thompson after they were spotted out on a date in March 2017. Her rep claimed that they were just good friends but some tabloids claimed that they had been on a couple of dates. In April, it was reported that they had decided to end their budding romance. As the equation between them had been very casual from the start and the relationship had failed to evolve into something serious, they decided to call it a day.
- Doug Spedding (2017) – In May 2017, Christina started dating retired businessman Doug Spedding, who had earned his fortune from a car dealership. They had met at the hockey game.

The couple welcomed their first child (third for Christina) together, son Hudson London in September 2019.
