Christina Applegate is the latest in a string of actresses set to be a mother! The ‘Married … With Children’ actress announced yesterday she is expecting a baby with fiancé Martyn Lenoble. Christina’s representative confirmed the news, however details of a due date were not given.
After defeating breast cancer two years ago, being a mommy should be a treat! Christina underwent a double mastectomy in July 2008 after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Because she had both of her breasts removed shortly following the diagnosis, she didn’t have to endure radiotherapy or chemotherapy. She has since had both of her breasts reconstructed.
38-year-old Christina, who had been dating 41-year-old Martyn for two years when they got engaged in February this year, says he was her rock in overcoming her ordeal with breast cancer.
“I’m very grateful to Martyn for coming along at a time that he did because he’s been my rock through all of this,” Christina told People in an interview in 2009.
Calling him her “angel”, she continued: “he gave me something to really want to live for and something to smile about.”
Christine got her breakthrough for her role as the sexy but not so intelligent Kelly Bundy in the hit 1980s and 90s TV sitcom “Married … With Children”. Christina, a gorgeous blonde, then proceeded to act in several high profile movies, including ‘The Sweetest Thing’, ‘Just Visiting’, ‘View From The Top’ and ‘Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy’. But she wasn’t only successful on the big screen. She also acted in several broadway hits before starring in the hit TV show ‘Samantha Who?’
