Applegate expecting; no date for wedding
Christina Applegate and her fiance Martyn Lenoble are expecting, her rep told People magazine. The "Married . . . with Children"/"Samantha Who?" star says her fiance, a Dutch bass player, helped her recover after undergoing a double mastectomy. "I'm very grateful to Martyn for coming along at a time that he did because he's been my rock through all of this," Applegate told People last year. "He gave me something to really want to live for and something to smile about." Applegate, 38, and Lenoble, 41, dated for two years before becoming engaged on Valentine's Day. No date has been set for their wedding.
