When she's not on screen, Christina is creating new memories with her husband Marcus Mitchell.

The couple wed on Sept. 25, 2016, and the pictures will seriously make you happy cry.

Seriously, somebody grab the tissues...

...because they're freaking adorable!

And just because I literally want to make your heart explode with happiness, guess what? They're having a baby!

The parents-to-be are having a girl and they've already picked out the name: Willa.

We're so glad to see Christina doing well! And we hope this filled your nostalgia quota for the week, toodles.
