Christina Ricci is pregnant with her 1st child with hubby James Heerdegen

Christina Ricci

Christina Ricci has carved out a lifelong career as an actress. I’ve always been impressed at how she transitioned from child to adult star without much drama. She’s one of the good ones. She’s had a few rocky periods in her love life, but who hasn’t? Christina married James Heerdegen last year — they met on the Pan Am set, which was one of the only good things to come from that show. Now she’s pregnant. Us has a photo of her bump, and Christina’s rep confirms the happy news:

She’s eating for two! Christina Ricci is pregnant and expecting her first child with husband James Heerdegen, her rep confirms to Us Weekly.

The Now and Then alum, 34, gave a first glance of her noticeable baby bump as she arrived with Heerdegen at LAX airport in L.A. on Friday, May 23. The mom-to-be wore leggings and an oversized long-sleeve shirt. She accessorized with a brown belt placed below her chest, which accentuated her growing belly.

Us broke news last October that the actress and dolly grip Heerdegen tied the knot on the Upper East Side in NYC. The couple exchanged vows in an intimate ceremony at the Harold Pratt House and Peterson Hall and were feted by close family and friends.

Ricci wore a Givenchy Haute Couture high neck dress with beaded detail on her special day. Guests were treated to a cocktail hour, dinner, dancing, and a candy table during dessert.

Ricci and Heerdegen first met on the ABC series Pan Am in 2011.

Christina looks like she’s five or six months along, which means she got pregnant pretty fast after her fall wedding. I like how she didn’t make a formal announcement until after photos revealed the undeniable. She’s not going to be one of those celebrities who sell every stage of pregnancy and birth to the highest bidder. Those covers are great fun, but it’s refreshing to see a different approach. She’ll probably Instagram baby’s first photo.

The “eating for two” comment from Us is so sappy and predictable, but I have to wonder if Christina is enjoying her McDonalds addiction twice as hard now. She once admitted to eating there three times in one day. That’s pretty extreme, but if she likes it, why not?

    I’ve never noticed before but Christina looks a lot like Posh!
    Anyway, I’m happy for her, she seems such a nice person and as a celebrity child she was never a famewhore. She was amazing as Wednesday Addams.

  2. Dani2 says:

    Congrats to her :)

  3. Frida_K says:

    I hope she’ll dress the baby as Pubert for its first Halloween!


    Congratulations to her, in any case. She was fabulous in the Addams Family. Who could ever forget her flawless delivery of the comeback to that icky girl’s “I’ll be the victim!” offer? “For the rest of your life”–perfect.

    Ah, the Addams Family.

      Wednesday: You have taken the land which is rightfully ours. Years from now my people will be forced to live in mobile homes on reservations. Your people will wear cardigans, and drink highballs. We will sell our bracelets by the road sides, you will play golf, and enjoy hot hors d’oeuvres. My people will have pain and degradation. Your people will have stick shifts. The gods of my tribe have spoken. They have said, “Do not trust the Pilgrims, especially Sarah Miller.
      And for all these reasons I have decided to scalp you and burn your village to the ground.

      I used to be able to quote this verbatim. :D

      • Frida_K says:

        OMG, you rule!

        I love that speech too. It is AWESOME.

        She needs to dress the child up like Pubert every Halloween until it’s old enough to be dressed like Gomez, clearly.


    • Abby_J says:

      Amanda: Hi, I’m Amanda Buckman. Why are you dressed like that?

      Wednesday: Like what?

      Amanda: Like you’re going to a funeral. Why are you dressed like somebody died?

      Wednesday: Wait.

      My favorite from that movie. :)

    I’m smiling with happiness for her.

  7. I Choose Me says:

    I’ve always liked her and wish her the best. Congratulations Christina!

  8. serena says:

    I really like Christina, so I’m happy for her. I just hope she’ll go back to doing great movies or tv after the baby is born. I want a good project for her, she’s so good! sigh

  9. TG says:

    I have always liked her too and enjoy her movies. I have never seen the Adams Family though so I think it is time I check it out. I loved her in the movie Pumpkin.

  10. LAK says:

    You can’t make assumptions about how far along she is simply because she’s tiny. Any pregnancy will instantly show plus depending on the size of her husband, she’ll look bigger than a bump on a taller, bigger woman at the same stage of pregnancy.

  11. Zigggy says:

    I find the “eating for two” comment a little weird, in regards to someone who has struggled with an eating disorder.

    • don't kill me i'm french says:

      The “sources” of US Weekly or People always have weird commentaries.

  12. bettyrose says:

    I liked Pan Am. It might have been the last network show I ever watched. I hope Christina ends up with some other good projects. She’s fun to watch. I liked her look as a chubby teen, but I know it would’ve been career suicided if she hadn’t slimmed down for adult roles.

  13. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    So many interesting projects she’s done – Blacksnake moan with Samuel L was good pairing.

  14. Daria says:

    Congratulations to her!

  15. Ang says:

    I like her too, but didn’t she admit to eating disorders in the past she is really tiny. It’s hard to believe 3 times a day at McDonalds. Yuck

    • mytbean says:

      I doubt this so much. Unless she’s eating one nugget and throwing the rest away or eating a cup of salad with no dressing…

      I’m her height/build and when I was a teenager with the racing metabolism to match my age I spent a long summer with my grandmother who spoiled me rotten – including daily thrice meals at Micky D’s. Result? Gallbladder issues, a twenty-five pound weight gain in two months, mood problems and a soda addiction that kept me up until daylight hours.

      No way is she eating the regular menu if she’s there. I think she’s just trying to speak to what she thinks are the little people.

      • Shantal says:

        She said that she ONCE ate McDonalds three times in one day, not that she does it regularly.

  16. Alyce says:

    I’m really happy for her! I’ve always really liked her!

  17. Lucky Charm says:

    Congratulations to her & her hubby! She’s so petite and tiny, there’s no where but out for the baby to go, so she looks further along than she probably really is.

  18. Mikeyangel says:

    Love her! So happy for her!

  19. Lucinda says:

    Congratulations to her! She has always seemed so low-key. I hadn’t seen much of her between Adams Family and Pan Am. I was surprised to see how much she had grown up and how stunning she had become. Hope all goes well for her.

  20. Hiddles forever says:

    Congratulations! Always liked her :)

  21. Alex_r says:

    Congrats! She’s awesome. Always liked her.

    Congrats! All the best :)
