Before she took on the Chiu family name, her maiden name was Cheng.
Social Media Reach: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter
At the time Bling Empire was released on Netflix, Christine had 255k followers on her Instagram. The number was surely anticipated to get bigger with a new kind of fame, especially after Christine has been already called upon by the nicknames like “couture queen”.
At the time, she could not be found on Twitter, she had a low-key presence on Facebook.
Height, Weight, Distinct Features
With an immense love for haute couture, Christine Chiu loves dolling herself up. Standing tall in a 5′ 6″ height and a lately reported weight of under 52 kg, she dislikes seeing celebrities possibly wearing the same ultra-exclusive front rows from Armani to Chanel that she paid a lot of money for.
Surely a fitness fanatic, Christine loves to stay in shape. She has long black hair which she often lets down flaunting her loose natural curls.

Besides Christine, the show also stars model Kevin Krieder, fashion influencer Jaime Xie, DJ Kim Lee, Cherie Chan, Kane Lim, Anna Shay, Kelly Mi Li, Andrew Gray, Florent Bonadei, and Jessey Lee.
Christine, with honors in International Business from Pepperdine University, is a celebrated face in the public relations and beauty industries. As a managing partner for her husband’s luxury medispa in Beverly Hills, she is focused on expanding the business bringing in more celebrities and Hollywood bigwigs as clients. All the while she also actively participated in philanthropic works. She served on the boards of a good number of charitable organizations.
Not to mention the fact that she and her husband notably teamed up with Prince Charles to open the Prince’s Foundation Chiu Integrated Health Programme in Cumnock, Scotland, sometime in 2019.
This way, for someone who is known to drop $100k on a single gown, Christine Chiu saved in over $20 million. While it was also reported, together with her husband, she had $50 million (as of 2021).
Christine Chiu Husband, Kids, Surrogacy
Christine Chiu, who married Gabriel Chiu sometime in 2008, spills many family secrets on Bling Empire. For one she revealed, given the dynasties were still a thing in China, her husband would be the son of the emperor, and their son Gabriel Christian Chiu III, aka Baby G, would be a “little prince.”
Born June 29th, 2018, 7 pounds, 7.4 ounces, and 19.9 inches is the pride of the Chiu family. Lately (Jan. 15, 2021) as the family celebrated the Chinese New Year, Christine wrote on her Instagram, they “waited 12 years to be able to celebrate Chinese New Year as a family with Baby G ❤️🎉🙏🏻”.
In PEOPLE’s exclusive sneak peek at 2021 releasing Bling Empire, Christine and her husband meet with their doctor to discuss having another baby. And in light of the difficult first pregnancy, the doctor suggested another option i.e. surrogacy. Concerned for Christine’s well being, even Gabriel asked her to not carry the baby by herself. All choked up, he spoke:
“You could have lost your life. You being pregnant again is not an option. I was almost left with the choice of having to decide between you or having a child.”
Meanwhile, Christine, under the impression that the idea of having a baby through surrogacy would offend her in-laws, seemed much in dilemma to make any decision.
“Gabe’s parents would hate the idea of surrogacy. They are very traditional and surrogacy is not something that’s accepted. I literally just got out of the dog house with my in-laws and I just don’t want to go through that all over again.”
