Who is Christopher Guest?
Christopher Haden-Guest (74) was born on February 5, 1948 to parents Jean Pauline Hindes and Peter Haden-Guest. The actor, writer, director and musician was born into the British nobility, as the 5th Baron Haden Gas.

Some of the other movies he has worked on include Best in Show, A mighty wind, For your consideration, and more. He has also worked with some other Hollywood legends including Eugene Levy, Jennifer Coolidge, Catherine O’Haraand others.
How long have they been married?
Their relationship began when Jamie apparently saw Christopher Rolling stone magazine, according to The American Sun. It was then that she told her partner, Debra Hill that she is “going to marry that man”. Debra contacted Christopher’s agent and tried to connect the two, but unfortunately Chris never called. Later, Jamie ran into Chris at a restaurant in West Hollywood, and he called her the next day. Two months later, the couple were engaged, and eventually married in 1984.
In 2018, the beauty told Good Housekeeping the secret of her long marriage. “Don’t leave. There is a recovery phrase that says: ‘Stay on the bus… the scenery will change.’ You think you’re having a bad week, but stay on the bus because one of these days you’ll look out the window and it’ll be beautiful. I think this can apply to almost anything where you are feeling unhappy at that moment. I’m not a wild romantic. I am a realist. I respect him. And I’m just not leaving.”
Do Jamie and Chris have children?
After two years of marriage, Jamie and Christopher decided to expand their family. Born in December 1986, Annie Guest, 36, is the eldest daughter of the celebrity duo. Although Annie is also an actress, she only has one credit on her IMDb page, which is for the movie For your consideration.
Their second child, Ruby Gas26, was born a decade later in March 1996. And in July 2021, the 63-year-old told GAAP that Ruby came out as transgender. She said that both she and Christopher “watched in awe and pride as our son became our daughter Ruby. And she and her fiancé are getting married next year at a wedding that I will officiate.” Ruby doesn’t work in Hollywood, but instead is a computer game editor. Although he is not yet a grandmother, Jamie is positive that one day she will be. “Not yet, but I hope so,” she told the store at the time.
