Christine Brown was one of the stars of the Sister Wives reality show that first aired in 2010.

On November 2, 2021, she announced she was leaving her husband Kody Brown after more than 25 years together.

The couple had “spiritually married” in 1994, with Christine becoming his third wife at the time.

It’s only been a few months since The U.S. Sun first revealed Christine was secretly dating the Utah construction executive after her split from Kody.

In early February, a source exclusively confirmed to The U.S. Sun that Christine, 51, was getting serious with David, who is based in Herriman, Utah, only 30 minutes away from her home in Murray.

David is from San Diego, California, and is the owner of his own construction business, David Woolley Drywall.

The 59-year-old is a widower and father of eight children.

Christine has six children, whom she shares with ex-husband Kody Brown: Aspyn, 27; Mykelti, 26; Paedon, 24; Gwendlyn, 21; Ysabel, 19; and Truely, 12.

Like Christine, he is also a grandparent.

On Valentine’s Day, the two went public with their romance, as Christine confirmed her relationship on social media, calling David the “love of her life” in an adorable and heartfelt post.

The reality star took to her feed on Valentine’s Day to share several snuggly photos with her new man.

In the first, the couple posed for a smiling selfie as the TV personality leaned on her new boyfriend’s shoulder.

In a second picture, the pair gazed at one another while seated on the couch, holding one of their grandbabies.

For a third snap, Christine and her new man smiled while hanging out in the living room, again caressing two tiny tots.

The TLC star captioned her post: “I finally found the love of my life, David. The first time he held me close, it felt like my soul took it’s first breath.

“He’s wonderful and kind, incredible with my children and an adorable grandpa. I never dreamed I could find a love like this.”

It didn’t take long for Kody to grow jealous of the new pairing.

“He’s aggravated at it all, and all her posts,” a source told The U.S. Sun. “It’s really getting to him, especially since fans keep tagging him and sending him the posts. He is avoiding social media at all costs.”

“Kody believes it’s just Christine wanting attention.

“He doesn’t believe after all these years with him, she’s moved on so quickly, and is already in love with another man,” the source added.

“He thinks it’s all B.S.”

A source previously told The U.S. Sun that the mom of six loves “getting revenge” on her former husband.

Last month, David’s tragic past was revealed in an official police report.

The Utah construction exec was left a single dad to eight children after his late wife, Margaret Lucille Suliin Woolley, died by suicide on June 20, 2012.

She was 43 years old.

According to the police report from Utah’s Lehi City Police, she was found in a hotel room unconscious and not breathing.

David’s late wife had checked into the hotel room a day prior, and when housekeepers knocked on her door after check out time on June 20, they “immediately saw the female…was not breathing.”

Police were called to the scene and, per the investigation, found bottles of pills and noted she had also consumed beer.

The investigation listed her death as suicide from an overdose.

Earlier this month, The U.S. Sun revealed that Christine was ready to walk down the aisle – and anxious to do so.

“Christine’s hopeful that she and David are going to get married.

“She’s 100 percent ready,” a source told The U.S. Sun.

The reality star and Kody were married for 25 years before they announced their breakup in November 2021.

The source continued: “She never fully got to live life with Kody since they were in a polygamous relationship, so she wants a forever with someone so badly.

“A wedding can happen sooner than later.

“She’s a very young-minded individual and wants this fairytale ending.”

On April 13, Christine revealed that she and David were engaged.

She announced the happy news while sharing several sweet photos with David.

She wrote: “We’re engaged! David popped the question VERY romantically, and I said YES! I’m so excited and just live in bliss every day!”

The TLC star showed off her stunning diamond engagement ring as she posed with her partner.

She told People: “David treats me like a queen and tells me I’m beautiful every day.

“I’ve never been in love like this before and the world seems like a brighter place with him in it.”

Days later, The U.S. Sun learned the betrothed couple purchased a $770,000 Utah home together.

According to real estate records obtained by The U.S. Sun, the couple signed the deed to their new home on March 15.

The four bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom home is located in Lehi and has over 4,200 square feet of space.

Christine and David have more than enough room with their large master suite with a bath tub and separate shower, spacious bedrooms, and closets.

The home has laminate wood flooring and new carpeting upstairs.

The grand gourmet kitchen features an island for food prep, hanging lights, quartz countertops, and white cabinets.

The family can relax in front of their fireplace and can enjoy the community’s amenities, including a clubhouse, outdoor pool, nature trails, and pickleball courts.

One of the best features of their new home is the backyard, which has unobstructed views of Mount Timpanogos, the East Mountains, and the Jordan River.

In fact, the patio deck is where Christine and David posed from when they took their engagement photos.

Just this week, Christine and David Woolley were spotted for the first time since news of their their engagement broke, running errands in town.

On April 16, Christine and David, along with the reality star’s 13-year-old daughter Truely, picked up some food and household supplies at a local Costco and Lowe’s.

In exclusive photos obtained by The U.S. Sun, the newly engaged couple was seen laughing and smiling as they exited Costco.

Christine was pushing the cart that held food products while David joked around with Kody Brown’s daughter.

Truely appeared to have something in her hair, so she tilted her head as her soon-to-be stepfather attempted to get it out.

The items in their shopping cart visible in the photos appear to be mixed nuts, parmesan cheese, drinking glasses, chocolate-covered almonds, and organic chips.
