Yesterday, reports surfaced that Chris Christie had gastric band surgery, and because everyone and their mom is curious about why the New Jersey governor decided to have the operation, he wants everyone to know that it's none of your dang business!
However, instead of just really blowing everyone off and not giving up any info, he did express that if he was asked about it, he wasn't gonna lie.
While many think that the reason Christie went through with the surgery was for a career move, the 50-year-old politician expressed that he had the procedure because "It is a long-term health issue."
"I got confronted with your own mortality as I started to age. This is about my kids, Mary Pat and me.”
Since obesity is the No. 2 cause of preventable death in the United States, we can see why the governor wanted to do something about his health, and after dropping 40 pounds, he's well on his way to a brand new person!!
