“You are strong enough to face it all, even if it doesn’t feel like it right now,” the post said.

As reported, Christopher was arrested Monday in Connecticut on charges of fourth-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor.

According to a report, the alleged sexual assault occurred when the young girl was staying in his house along with his two kids – who are her friends – for a sleepover. As the girl slept on the couch, the married father allegedly went over to her and asked her if she wanted to touch and kiss his penis. He also allegedly took pictures of her chest and caressed her naked body and bum – twice.

After the alleged assault, the girl claimed Christopher warned her not to tell anyone else, because if she did, he would go to jail and his daughter wouldn’t have a father.

Christopher appeared on a pilot episode of Family Flip on HGTV aside his twin brother, Michael. The twins were also in the process of filming a new home renovation show on A&E called House Rescue. However, A&E halted production following Christopher’s arrest.
