Who Is Christiana Barkley?
Christiana Barkley was born in 1989, however, she doesn’t share the exact date of her birth, thus we are unable to tell her zodiac sign. She is 28 or 29 as of mid-2018, and her nationality is American. She is best known as the daughter of the National Basketball Association legend, Charles Barkley and his wife Maureen.
Early Life and Education
When it comes to Barkley’s ethnicity, she is of mixed race, as her father is black and her mother white. She has dark hair and brown eyes, and her skin is healthy and glowing. Despite the fact that she doesn’t share information regarding her body measurements, we can tell that she has a fit body, as depicted in the photos we’ve seen on the internet. Speaking about Barkley’s education, she was a student of the Columbia University in New York, and graduated in journalism.
Husband and Kids
When it comes to Christiana’s relationship status, she doesn’t share much information about her immediate personal life, including dating, marriage or spoke about having children, so the assumption is that she is still single.
As we have previously mentioned she tries to keep her life away from the media and is successful in doing so. She appears to be active on social media Instagram, but her account is locked.
Christiana’s Mother, Model Maureen Barkley
It is safe to say that Christiana got her beauty from her mom, the former model Maureen Blumhardt. Her mom is also an honorary member of the Fresh Start Women’s Foundation, which provides resources, support and education for women. In 2016, Christiana and her mom were photographed at the Fresh Start Fashion Gala, with more than 730 guests attending the event, and helped in raising $1.5 million for charitable causes.
Who Is Her Father, Charles Barkley?
As we have mentioned, Christiana’s dad Charles Barkley, was born in 1963 and is a former basketball player for teams such as the Philadelphia 76ers, Phoenix Suns and Houston Rockets, and who has also worked as a television analyst. He is widely known as one of the top 50 greatest NBA Players of all time, but despite all that, Christiana is good at keeping her private life behind the closed door. Christiana’s parents reportedly met at a restaurant and shortly afterwards began dating.
However, as some sources cite, their relationship, and later on their marriage was somewhat controversial as they had a mixed-race relationship, a little unusual at the time, with PlayerWives.com writing “Apparently the marriage was unpopular in some areas of Philly because it was a mixed-race marriage.” Barkley also worked on the docu-series entitled “American Race”, and stated that he was partially inspired to join the project as the result of negative stereotypes of minorities on TV. Speaking about that, he added “If you are some type of Muslim, you are going to be blowing stuff up. If you are Hispanic you are going to be some type of gangbanger. I’ve felt like this for years.”
In the recent past, Christiana was the subject of a controversy, when a set of racy photos appeared online, and people believed that it was her posing. The photos have gone viral, but it was later on revealed that the person on the controversial photos wasn’t Christiana, but a woman named Villanova, who has over 100,000 followers on Instagram.
