Cris Judd married Jennifer Lopez in 2001, less than a year after meeting her in Spain. He became the second husband of the famous singer.


However, Judd and Lopez divorced in 2003. He is currently married to Kelly Wolfe, and they have one child — daughter Vivienne Lee.

Most of his photos on Instagram include his wife Kelly and their child. You can really tell that he loves them so much.

Judd became interested in dance at age 21, and within a year, he switched careers and started dancing professionally with Disney, according to his IMDB profile.

In 1995, he was hired to dance with Michael Jackson for the MTV Video Music Awards. Then he became one of the dancers of the late pop icon for his tour. Ultimately, he became the lead dancer for the tour.

He was also given a chance to perform alongside other several famous artists, including Celine Dion, Enrique Iglesias, and Brian McKnight.

Since that time, Judd has danced in and choreographed many music videos, including Usher Raymond's "My Way," Angie Martinez's "If I Could Go," and "Jump, Jive, & Wail" for the Brian Setzer Orchestra.

He also became a director, and because of that profession, he met Lopez. He was hired to direct the music video of the singer's hit song "Love Don't Cost a Thing" at the time.


As reported by PEOPLE, Lopez, who is currently engaged to her baseball legend boyfriend, Alex Rodriguez, filed for divorce in 2002, citing irreconcilable differences. In a statement, their lawyers said:

"Jennifer Lopez and Cris Judd have announced they have resolved all issues arising out of their marriage. The resolution was extremely amicable . . . The two will remain friends."


Judd's TV debut was in the first season of "I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here!" He immediately won the hearts of many people because of that hit series.

He earned $200,000 for the Make-a-Wish Foundation when he was crowned "King of the Jungle" in a viewer vote.

Judd, who grew up in the Philippines and Hawaii, has broken away from his dancing and choreography roots and moved his acting career into high gear. 

His notable projects include "Unfabulous," "Eve," "Everybody Loves Raymond," "Half & Half," "Bad Girls Club," and "The Real Housewives of New Jersey."
