After divorce and cancer, Christina Applegate is engaged and expecting
Posted by Sarah Anne Hughes
Breathe easy, dear reader, this isn't about Lindsay Lohan. "Samantha Who?" star Christina Applegate and her musician fiance are expecting their first child, according to her rep. Now isn't that a nice change of pace?
The past few years haven’t been easy for Applegate. She divorced “That Thing You Do” actor Jonathan Schaech in 2007 and was diagnosed with breast cancer the next year. She underwent a double mastectomy.
But! In April of this year she got engaged to Lenoble -- the person she credits with helping her overcome cancer -- and, if you're still not sure what this post is about, is now expecting a baby. All's well that ends well, right?
While I don't want to condone the idea that baby equals happiness, it does warm my heart to see a celebrity, especially one who has had a rough go of things, find some happiness. Other examples? Halle Berry immediately comes to mind. After two divorces, one that included allegations that ex-husband Eric Benet cheated, she met model Gabriel Aubry and had perhaps the cutest baby alive with him. The two split in April, but now Berry will always have her extremely adorable child, Nahla. Troubled celebutante Nicole Richie comes to mind as well. After battling an eating disorder, drugs and the law, the "Simple Life" star began a relationship with Joel Madden, had two babies with funky names and now seems to have her life together. Can you think of others? Share in the comments section.
