Early Life and career
Davina Christian was born in Denver. Her father, David Joseph Christian, Sr. (1935 – 1993), was a florist. Her mother, Julie Christian (née Mengering, b. 1941 d. 2017), a news anchorwoman at KTRJ, KIAA, and KDEN, has been an occasional figure in Denver, usually at holidays and birthdays. His father is of German descent, and her mother had English, Scots-Irish, and German ancestry. Stephen is the fourth of five children with two older sisters, Laverne (b. 1963) and Kymberly (b. 1967 d. 2017), an older brother, Juan (b. 1965), and a younger brother Stephen (formerly Shirley (b. 1971).
She lived on the south side of Denver (Hampden South area), not far from Auroa, Colorado, and the Stapleton International Airport. Her father survived a heart attack at age 36, when Davina was a toddler. The fear of losing her father was constantly with Davina and her two older siblings (Kymberly and Stephen) growing up. David Christian, Sr. died of a second heart attack at age 57.
Marriages, relationships, and family
Davina began undergoing a physical and social gender transition that began on March 4, 1996 (the date when KDNC switched from CBS to Fox and Davina's 27th birthday). She underwent electrolysis and breast augmentation performed at the beginning of 1995 after beginning hormone therapy. Davina also underwent bottom surgery in the form of a vaginoplasty in 1999.
