Christina Ochoa enjoys ocean diving or tagging sharks and whales, yet her love for the big screens saw her relocate to Los Angeles, fall in love with the land, and with "Shot Caller" actor Cru Ennis.
Christina Ochoa has parlayed her success playing a nurse on the TV drama series "Modern Family" and Ashley Morales on "A Million Little Things." She also plays the female lead of the NBC Universal series "Blood Drive."
Her other roles include playing Renn on "Animal Kingdom" and Karen Morales on "Matador." But when she is not taking on-screen roles, she is doting on her alleged fiancé, Cru Ennis.

It remains unclear when Ennis and Ochoa started dating, but their chemistry remains undeniable. And while not much information about their private life is available, photos on their Instagram pages tell quite the story.
They have kept fans up to date with their romance, from posting photos waving 2021 goodbye to strolling on the boulders on the beach.
In one photo posted a fortnight ago, Ennis paid tribute to Ochoa, writing: "Happy Birthday, my incredible bride." And while the caption might have passed off like any other, it was Ochoa's reply that seemed to hint at how deep their endearment was. Her reply read:
"Hottest husband ever 🔥🔥:) Thank you for making it so special🦈💙"
More photos allude to the couple's close bond, and in another snap posted back in January, Ochoa wrote that the two had spent New Year isolated on a boat in the middle of the ocean.
And while they were both vaccinated and boosted against the coronavirus, Ennis disclosed that they still caught the virus. A third snap captures Enis and Ochoa getting cozy with each other as they stare lovingly into each other's eyes.
Ennis is, however, not the first high-profile actor that Ochoa has dated. In 2013, she was engaged to "The Rookie" actor Nathan Fillion, but their romance ended soon, as many of Fillion's engagements before that.
WHO IS CRU ENNIS?
Fans recognize Ennis from his portrayal of roles such as "Doors," "21 and A Wake-up," "Priceless," "Boys of Abu Ghraib," and "Justice." But besides acting, he also loves working behind the screens and is a producer.
"Promised Land" is an epic drama about a Latinx family vying for power and wealth in California's Sonoma Valley. Joe Sandoval, played by John Ortiz, is the patriarch of two blended families and runs the Sonoma vineyard.
He is getting ready to hand over the winery's management to one of his children. Veronica, played by Ochoa, is one of Sandoval's daughters and is a very family-oriented businesswoman.
Veronica is the CEO of the family winery. In the first season, she tries to do what's best, dealing with everything thrown at her from her sibling's and father's standpoints.
2022 will be a busy year for Ochoa, as she has two more movies lined up. Speaking to Hola!, she said she shot the films during the pandemic, and they will come out after the release of the sixth and final season of "Animal Kingdom."
