How did Mira Sorvino and Christopher Backus meet? A Timeline of Their Relationship

The couple Mira Sorvino and Christopher Backus met back in 2003 at a mutual friend’s party. 

The two immediately hit it off and started dating just a couple of days later.

In 2004, after dating for one year, Sorvino and Christopher arranged a private wedding ceremony in Santa Barbara.

They wanted to share this intimate moment with only each other and decided to have an official wedding in Italy later that year.

With both of them in the acting industry, Mira and Christopher have a lot in common and it’s no wonder that they still have a great time together in their marriage.

Mira and Christopher welcomed their first child Mattea Angel in 2004, after which they had three more children, Johnny Christopher King, Terry Backus, and Lucia.

Even though the couple’s marriage looks wonderful and peaceful without any drama going on, Mira and Christopher were on a rough patch multiple times through their marriage.

It seems that Backus was dealing with alcohol problems back in 2011, which resulted in him getting arrested.

According to the TMZ report on this incident, Backus’ angry outburst and yelling towards his wife in public has led their friends and family to believe that he might as well be violent on other occasions, too.

However, the two had no similar incidents since 2011, and we hope everything is okay!
