Actress Christina Applegate is the newest member of the celebrity moms club, having given birth to a 7lbs 8oz baby girl last Thursday. Applegate, 39, and her fiancé Martyn LeNoble, 41, have named their first child Sadie Grace LeNoble.
A spokesperson for the couple said: “Actress Christina Applegate and her fiancé, musician Martyn LeNoble, welcomed daughter Sadie Grace LeNoble on Thursday, January 27, 2011, in Los Angeles. Mother and daughter are doing great.”
In what seems to be a fairly uncommon move in this day and age, Christina and Martyn decided against finding out the sex of the baby during the pregnancy; instead waiting until the birth to know whether they were having a boy or a girl.
The sex of the baby was actually a surprise to the two lovebirds as they decided to keep it a mystery until birth, which made the nursery designing process a bit more difficult.
At the time Christina said, “The nursery is gender neutral because we don’t know if it’s a boy or girl. I’m trying. It’s becoming a bigger project than it was supposed to be, unfortunately.”
Congratulations to the happy couple.
