MP George Christensen's wife April Asuncion is a lovely lady from the Philippines. They married in a civil ceremony in Te Kowai north of Mackay at a ceremony at his parents' house in 2019.
The wedding was preponed due to George's mother Margaret's illness and she died from cancer just days after the couple exchanged their vows.
The couple met first time while the MP was traveling to the Philippines in 2017 through their mutual friends while he was enjoying his holiday there.
After dating for some time 18 months to be exact, he proposed to her through a phone.

George then started to think about his retirement from federal politics soon after the birth of his first child and to spend more time with his family.
