Christina Ricci graced the red carpet at the SAG Awards this past weekend. She was nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries for Lifetime’s The Lizzie Borden Chronicles.

While walking the red carpet and chatting with E! host Brad Goreski, Ricci witnessed the host making a big mistake with regard to her son’s name.
It was almost a year and a half ago that Christina Ricci and hubby James Heerdegan welcomed a baby boy they named Freddie. They also have a dog named Karen.
Here’s how the red carpet faux pas played itself out.
“How’s your baby boy?” Goreski asked Christina Ricci.
“Amazing!” she replied.
Goreski then asked how Ricci’s dog Karen was adjusting to having a baby in the house.
“There’s the two of them. Freddie and Karen are best friends,” revealing her son’s name for the first time to the media.
“Freddie and Karen are Christina’s dogs,” Goreski said, speaking into the camera.
“No, no. Freddie is my baby. Karen is my dog,” Christina Ricci clarified.
“They’re so cute!” Goreski added, clearly not knowing what else he could possibly say.
It’s likely Brad Goreski was much more upset about the gaffe than Christina Ricci was.
Even though Christina Ricci lost out on her SAG Award to Queen Latifah, for her role in Bessie, she was beyond excited with the nomination alone.
Couldn't be more excited about and surprised by my SAG nomination!! And what a classy group of ladies I've found myself in the company of!
