Short Info

Fact(July 31, 2016) Engaged to boyfriend of 2 1/2 years, Justin Hartley.

Terrina Chrishell Stause is an American actress, who rose to fame thanks to soap operas in which she appeared. Some of you may also know her as the wife of the famous actor Justin Hartley.

Age, Early life

Chrishell was born on 21 Jul 1981, in Draffenville, Kentucky, so is now 38 years old. We don’t know much about her parents, however, there is an interesting story about how she got her name. When her mother went into labor, she was at a gas station called Shell. The clerk’s name was Chris, and so her mother put the two together and give her the name Chrishell.

Chrishell went to Murray State University, and in 2003 graduated with a bachelor’s degree in theatre. In this world, she crossed paths with dancer, actor and songwriter Mathew Morrison, to whom she became engaged in 2006. However, the engagement didn’t last, and the couple broke up in 2007.

Marriage, Personal Life

At that time, her now husband, Justin Hartley was married to a co-star in from his series “Passions”, Lindsey Korman.

The two of them have a daughter Bella Justice Hartley, born in 2004. So Chrishell is a step-mom, and from what we can tell has a perfect relationship with Bella. Justin divorced his wife after eight years of marriage, and in 2017 he and Chrishell married in Malibu, California in a private ceremony. Even before that, the couple did not hide their enthusiasm, as witnessed by a picture of the engagement ring on Instagram, and him saying that he had finally found ‘the one’, adding that when that happens, you know it.

However, it was a rocky road to get there since she only let him kiss her on the cheek on the first day. But after she had told her friend about him, she realized how much she liked him, and so the love grew. They dated for four years before marrying; at the wedding, Justin’s daughter Bella was a bridesmaid.


Not long after she graduated, she had her first role as Amanda Dillon in “All My Children”, which aired in 2005; she now has a prosperous career of over 10 years.

She didn’t have any significant work until 2013, when Chrishell secured a role in the big hit telenovela “The Days of our Lives” for the next two years, then proceeded with her career in ABC’s “Mistresses” in 2015, and “The Young and Restless”. Before working on the latter, she was one of the writers of all the previous shows she did, which was a perfect opportunity to show her talent for writing.

Other series she has appeared in are “Youthful Days Misguided”, “Meanwhile”, then, “The Crimson Mask”, and many others. She was also a part of the series entitled “Selling Sunset”, which tells the story about her personal life as a real estate agent; all of these certainly solidified her talent as a soap opera actress. Chrishell’s net worth is now estimated at over $1 million, while her husband’s net worth is estimated to be around $5million.

Social Media, Rumors

There was only one rumor that said how she broke it off with her ex-boyfriend Mathew, because he was cheating her with other girls. However, this remained just a rumor.


Chrishell is acutely aware of the global problems in the world, which is why she does charity work and is trying to help the homeless. She is a volunteer at a center called Upward Bound House, where she dedicates her time to helping homeless people with families find a place to stay, offers legal help, and other support.


This all had roots in her sad childhood story when she was homeless while in high school, which was of course hard on her, as she stated in an interview. This way of life stuck with her for a long time, since even after she became famous and relatively rich, she kept some of the old habits, like splitting a make-up wipe in half and using it multiple times.

Trivia, Body Stats

We can all agree Chrishell is a beautiful woman, but she owes her unique beauty to dual ethnicity, since she is of Japanese and Spanish descent. She is 5ft 6ins tall (1.68m), and weighs 120 lbs ~ 54kgs. She has dark brown hair, and eyes to match.
