Todd and Julie Chrisley: Timeline
Chrisley Knows Best stars Todd and Julie married on May 25, 1996, while Julie was nine months pregnant with their first child. This was Todd’s second marriage following six years with Teresa Terry from 1990 to 1996.
They welcomed their son Chase that same year. On a March episode of the couple’s podcast Chrisley Confessions, Todd recalled the first time he met Julie when they had a mutual friend.
“She walked into my friend’s house, and it was during the winter months, and I remember when she walked in and she smiled, I thought, ‘She has got the most beautiful smile I have ever seen,'” Todd said.
He added, “She’s the only woman who has ever literally touched my soul.” They now have three kids, Chase, Savannah, and Grayson Chrisley, and have been married for at least 27 years so far.
