Chris Cuomo's wife, Cristina Cuomo, felt inspired ahead of her new favorite activity in winter – looking happy and healthy after the Cuomos battle with the novel Coronavirus.
Cristina Cuomo, CNN host Chris Cuomo's wife, felt inspired by Ralph Waldo Emerson as she got ready to make the most of early daylight and her favorite new activity.
Sharing a scenic selfie on social media, Cristina looked fit and healthy following the battle with COVID-19 she, Chris, and their 14-year-old son, Mario, faced early in 2020.

WHEN INSPIRATION HITS
The popular CNN host contracted the virus first in April 2020, and most severely in the family. Cristina developed symptoms 18 days later, followed by Mario. Thankfully, they've all since recovered.
Ready for the new year and the tides it might bring, Cristina encouraged people to blaze their own trails instead of following a path wherever it may lead. Sharing her new favorite activity with followers, she wrote:
"Sunday morning surfing in Montauk has become my favorite winter activity for so many reasons but mainly because I feel my strongest, best self."
Chris is also in great shape following his recovery from the virus. During his battle with the disease, the CNN host lost 13 pounds in a matter of days, but the 50-year-old bounced back.
In August last year, Cuomo appeared up in his daughter Bella's dancing TikTok video, and it showed that his regular workouts paid off with a buff and toned look.
The 50-year-old's wife, whom he met in 1998 at an art opening, had a much easier experience with the novel Coronavirus. Nine days after Cristina's symptoms began, she had almost flushed it from her system.
A ROAD LESS TRAVELED
However, not everyone agreed with the holistic route Cristina took to get there. Linda Lancaster, her homeopathic doctor, recommended she bath in Clorox water, use a vitamin C drip in addition to herbal medicines.
While Cristina is aware that Western medical doctors make no use of holistic medicines, largely due to its lack of scientific backing, she is open to exploring avenues that can help, as she said during an interview:
“Who knows if it worked or what it did, but I know that in nine days, I got most of that virus out of my system.”
CAUSE FOR CELEBRATION
The mom of three prefers a more natural approach to health and wellbeing, and in Cuomo's 15th birthday tribute to Mario in December, she looked half her age.
She shared several pictures to celebrate the special day, and those that showed them surfing showed off her lean and toned figure in the wetsuit she wore.
