His father name is Paul Mears. His biological mother name is not stated precisely as she died from breast cancer during his childhood. His father then had a second marriage with Katy.

Chris has done his schooling from The Willink School. He had a keen interest in sports from a very young age. He also joined diving classes in a local club of Reading.

Moving on to his personal life, he is not married but in an open relationship. He has a girlfriend named Nicole Scherzinger. The couple is often spotted together spending their quality time. However, there rose various questions about Chris’s love interest in terms of gender as his diving partner Jack Laugher were suspected to be gay. The bro-mance of the two partners made everyone believe that they were having an affair despite they both had their girlfriends. Chris and Jack moving in together might also be one of reason for the people to think so. However, the diving partners never took the comments seriously and continued to maintain their bond and understanding as it was must while bringing out their best performance during the tournaments.
As a player, Chris has been through various accidents and injuries. But in 2009, he nearly had a death experience when he suffered from a glandular fever. The doctors stated that there was only 5% chance of Chris to live and in case he does live he would never be able to dive again. However, Chris proved the doctors wrong and through his hard work and determination he continued his passion and participated in various diving tournaments.
