Christina Daddario is an American lawyer and the mother of Alexandra Daddario, an American actress. She is also the mother of actress Catherine Daddario and actor Matthew Daddario.
Christina Daddario’s children are no strangers to the spotlight and the general movie-viewing public, as they all have amazing careers in Hollywood. The success they have enjoyed has invariably made their mother a celebrity. Here is all there is to know about her.
Who is Christina Daddario?
Without the prestige and fame she gleaned from other members of her family, including her children, husband, and late father-in-law, Christina Daddario would have been just another American lawyer going about her sailing business without drawing the attention of the public or the media.
Not much is known about the celebrity mother, including her exact date of birth. We can only speculate on the matter based on the knowledge that the man she married is currently 72 years old. Given that they don’t look much older than each other, we can assume that she is also around that age. Whether she is older or younger is something we have yet to ascertain.
Having settled that, Christina Daddario was born Christina Maria Titus in the United States. Her birthplace confirms her status as an American citizen, and while she belongs to the white Caucasian ethnic group, she has a broad ancestry that includes English, German, and Hungarian.
Her leaning toward a more secluded lifestyle has ensured that not much is known about her birth family members, including her parents and any siblings she might have had. However, she is the daughter-in-law of Emilio Quincy Daddario, the late former American Democratic party politician who served in the 86th through 91st US Congresses from 1959 to 1971.
Christina Daddario’s career as a lawyer is a clear indicator that she got a good formal education which included acquiring a Juris Doctor (JD) that has enabled her to practice the profession for more than 2 decades now. The exact details of her formal educational background, however, have so far been withheld from the media and the general public.
Alexandra Daddario’s Mother is a Seasoned Attorney
As previously stated, Christina Daddario’s JD gave her the qualifications to practice law in several American states. Having made her home in New York City for several years, the celebrity mom set up shop in the city that never sleeps.
Details of her work as a lawyer have been painstakingly kept private. As such, only her co-workers and her family members truly understand the scope of the kind of legal services she provides as a lawyer. Those facts notwithstanding, Christina Daddario has more than two decades of experience as a lawyer.
Judging by her net worth of an estimated $2 million, Christina Daddario has achieved a lot of success, at the very least financially, as a lawyer. The undoubted support she gets from her husband, who also trained to be a lawyer, has proved invaluable in her quest to achieve the level of success she has today.
Christina Daddario is Married to Richard Daddario
Christina Daddario has been married to Richard Daddario for over three decades. Beyond the time they have spent together as a married couple, there is very little information about how, when, or where they met.
The dearth of information regarding their union also extends to when they started dating, how long they dated before deciding to get married, and the details of the wedding ceremony itself, including the date and venue.
Born Richard Cornelius Daddario in 1951, in Connecticut, Christina Daddario’s husband is a respected US attorney. He added the title of politician to his portfolio, having picked up after his late father Emilio Quincy Daddario and served as the US Department of Justice attache in Moscow.
After serving in Russia, he returned to the US, where he was appointed the head of the New York Police Department’s (NYPD) counterterrorism unit from 2010 to 2013 under former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. He resigned in December 2013 following the controversial reports that the program was engaged in racial profiling.
One thing Christina and her husband have going for them remains the fact that they have weathered the storms of personal and work issues to remain together as a married couple.
Also, reports claiming that Richard Daddario is late are false. Although the former NYPD counterterrorism unit head did lose his father to a heart attack on July 7, 2010, in Washington DC, shortly after assuming that position.
Alexandra is Christina and Richard Daddario’s First Child
Christina Daddario is famous as the mother of Hollywood actress Alexandra Anna Daddario who she gave birth to on March 16, 1986. The actress made her name on the silver screens portraying the character Annabeth Chase in the Percy Jackson film series from 2010–2013.
Since then, she has earned over 2 dozen movies credits, including as Paige in Hall Pass (2011), Heather Miller in Texas Chainsaw 3D (2013), Blake Gaines in San Andreas (2015), Summer Quinn in Baywatch (2017), and Alexis Butler in We Summon the Darkness (2019). She has also appeared in lots of TV series, including White Collar, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, True Detective, New Girl, and American Horror Story: Hotel.
Her performance in the first season of the HBO series The White Lotus earned her widespread critical acclaim and an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie in 2022.
Since her rise to fame, Alexandra has portrayed a rather close relationship with her mother. They are often seen attending red-carpet events together. The actress never shies away from posting photos of her mother on her Instagram handle.
Christina Daddario Has Three Children
While it seems like Alexandra is the New York-based lawyer’s most famous kid, she is by no means her only child. Christina Daddario has two other children, both of whom are also actively involved in Hollywood.
Her only son Matthew Quincy Daddario was born on October 1, 1987, well over a year after the birth of Alexandra. He is best known for portraying Alec Lightwood in the TV series Shadow Hunters. He has been married to his longtime girlfriend, Esther Kim, since 2017, and they have a daughter.
Christina Daddario had her youngest child and second daughter, Catharine Daddario, on December 16, 1992, just 3 months and 15 days after she had her only son. Catharine Daddario is best known for her role as Sybil in the 2020 movie Donna Stronger Than Pretty.
Christina Daddario had Alexandra and her younger siblings in New York City. She also did her very best to give them a good life there. She is quite close to all her children, including Alexandra. One would find it hard to argue against the fact that she and her husband did a good job of positively influencing them with the values that are currently aiding them in achieving their dreams.
