The sarcastic and flighty daughter on Married With Children is now almost married and almost with a child herself. Christina Applegate is pregnant with her first baby! What a happy ending. What a happy beginning!
The 38-year-old star had a double mastectomy several years ago after developing an early type of breast cancer in her left breast. She opted to have both breasts removed because her mother is a survivor, plus she carries the dreaded BRCA breast cancer gene that almost guarantees a woman will develop breast cancer at some point in her life.
She's so young to have gone through such struggles, but I'm sure it's going to make her a better, more appreciative mom.
Applegate met now fiance Martyn Lenoble, a 41-year-old Dutch bass player, before her diagnosis. He helped her to recover from the surgery. The couple became engaged on Valentine's Day of this year. No word yet on a wedding date.
