“From the day before it all started…..to everything in between….” he captioned the carousel shared on Aug. 11. “Happy 5 year anniversary swan…wouldnt want to do this with anyone else. I love you [Candiace].”
How did Candiace and Chris meet?
Chris proposed to Candiace in the spring of 2017, about a year before Candiace made her RHOP debut.
“We met at work. We were both, at the time, working at a restaurant in Chinatown in DC,” the 'Wife said in Season 3 Episode 2. “He was a manager. I was just a host. And he decides to ask me, ‘So when can I come cook in your kitchen?’ He’ll deny this, but I know a flirt when I see a flirt.”
Candiace admitted she never expected to be with someone like Chris, as they had very different upbringings.
“Chris and I really grew up in two different worlds,” she continued. “I’m more like the Huxtables. I was raised in a more affluent, country club situation. And Chris was not. He was definitely not what I saw for myself.”
Candiace and Chris' IVF Journey
But despite their differences, Candiace and Chris appear to be going quite strong. The husband and wife are now looking to expand their family through IVF. The Potomac ’Wife provided an update on her pregnancy journey during a May interview BravoTV.com.
“It’s definitely a priority [and] we’re getting closer,” Candiace said. “Now it’s just a matter of figuring out when the right time of year would be… I’ve joked about this, but I’m also very serious about the fact that I would love to plan around not having an Aquarian or a Gemini... I don’t need an Aquarius or a Gemini in my house."
She continued: “But on a serious note, we’re just figuring out the best time. Because Chris and I are both in a lot of positive transition spaces right now.”
