Christina Ricci Pregnant With First ChildBy: Kimberly Ripley - May 26, 2014
Christina Ricci is expecting her first baby with husband James Heerdegen. A rep for the actress has confirmed the pregnancy. Her baby bump was spotted for the first time at LAX on Friday as she and her hubby arrived there. Ricci sported leggings, along with an oversized tunic she accented with a belt that highlighted her baby bump.
The couple announced their engagement in February of 2013 and got married the following October, with Ricci stunning on her wedding day in a Givenchy Haute Couture high neck dress with beaded detail. The intimate ceremony took place at Harold Pratt House & Peterson Hallon on the Upper East Side of New York City.
Christina Ricci and James Heerdegen met on the set of Pan Am back in 2011 where he worked as a camera dolly grip. She starred in the show that ran from 2011 to 2012. She was briefly engaged back in 2009 to actor Owen Benjamin.
Ricci’s initial claim to fame was as a child actor back in 1991 as Wednesday Addams in The Addams Family and again in 1993 in Addams Family Values. In 1995 she starred in Casper. It was in 1997 that Christina Ricci transitioned into more adult-type film roles, starring in The Ice Storm. She went on to star in several more films over the years including Sleepy Hollow, Monster, and Penelope. In 2006 she received an Emmy Award nomination for her role in Grey’s Anatomy, on which she played a paramedic.
Wednesday Addams fans might find it a little hard to believe that Christina Ricci is expecting a baby.
Neither Christina Ricci nor James Heerdegen has made an official comment yet regarding her pregnancy, therefore no one really has any clue as to when their baby might be due. From the looks of photos taken at LAX, the actress looks to be several months along.
Congratulations to both Christina and James on the impending birth of their first child. Having a baby is the most exciting time in a couple’s life. That life as they’ve known it thus far is about to see some drastic changes, however. Just ask anyone who has ever had a baby.
