Personal life[]

He met Krystal Nielson on the 5th season of Bachelor in Paradise. They got engaged at the end of the show. They moved in together a few months later in San Diego, California.

"Ever since I came to this beach I honestly didn’t know what to expect and it wasn’t smooth sailing early on. I mean, to be honest, there was a moment where I wanted to give up, a few weeks ago, but it was you that came to me and I listened. Honestly Krystal, you’ve changed my life. You’ve changed me. You’ve helped me become a better version of myself, a better man, but I have to be honest with myself and I have to be honest with you. And I’m so sorry Krystal, but it would be unfair to both of us if I left here today holding your hand, because I wanna leave here holding your heart. And I wanna give you my heart today, tomorrow and forever. I love you so much and I honestly can not picture a life without you. You’re the woman I know I wanna be with. Krystal Nicole Nielson, will you marry me?" - Chris proposing to Krystal.

On June 16, 2019, they were married in an intimate ceremony officiated by Chris Harrison at the Vidanta Hotel in Puerto Vallarta. Former Paradise castmates and Bachelor stars were in attendance, including Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon, Becca Kufrin and Ben Higgins. Their wedding will be aired as part of season 6 of Bachelor in Paradise.

On February 14, 2020, they announced that they had mutually decided to separate:

"It hurts to announce that at this moment, we have mutually decided to separate. Never did we imagine this scenario, but we've come to a point where we both need to work on ourselves. We are best friends that love and care for each other so deeply. We've appreciated everyone's love and support so far throughout our journey and we just ask that you please respect our privacy as we navigate through this."

On August 12, 2020, Krystal announced that the couple had decided to move forward with filing for divorce.
