Christina Ricci married husband James Heerdegen last October, and looks like they’re ready to start a family already, because she’s pregnant with the couple’s first child!

From Entertainment Tonight:

A rep for the 34-year-old actress, tells ET that the Golden Globe nominee is expecting her first child with husband James Heerdegen.

The two met on the set of the canceled ABC series Pan Am and went public with their relationship in February 2012.

Cute. You don’t hear much from Christina Ricci these days, and something tells me she likes it that way. I don’t know too much about her or her husband or any of that, but she seems sweet when I’ve seen her in interviews. Either way, congrats to the happy couple and all of that (which I do sincerely mean despite sounding otherwise).

Christina Ricci Got Married!


Christina Ricci got married, you guys! Why has she kinda disappeared? She had that show Pan Am that I loved, but most people unfortunately did not, as it only lasted one season before it was abruptly pulled. But something good came out of it — she met her husband, James Heerdegen, on the set, and got engaged.

Here’s some details of their wedding from People:

The actress, 33, wore a Givenchy haute couture wedding gown in white silk tulle with appliqué of Chantilly lace and satin piping, embroidered with micro pearls. Her white tulle veil had appliqué of matching Chantilly lace.

The ceremony took place at Manhattan’s Harold Pratt House & Peterson Hall, a nearly century-old mansion which is also the headquarters of the Council on Foreign Relations.

Daaaamn her gown sounds gorgeous. Can’t wait to see it. I think fashionwise she makes pretty good choices. Yeah, I liked the giant bow. It’s the MET Gala.

Christina Ricci’s Been Secretly Engaged For Months


Oh, Christina Ricci, an actress for whom my feelings teeter perilously between “who gives a shit?” and “eh, whatever”. Of course, she was great in The Addams Family and I still have Black Snake Moan at somewhere around the 267th place in my Netflix queue. Beyond that, I’ve always found her to be a bit alien-headed but generally innocuous. But we’re not here to discuss her relative “meh”-ness, we’re here to celebrate her engagement!

Turns out, Christina’s been secretly engaged (gasp!) to longtime boyfriend James Heerdegen for months, and she’s only just confirmed the news to US Weekly:

“[We got engaged] a couple months back.”

Wow, a woman of many words! Don’t hold back, Christina! I kid. Obviously it’s nobody’s business what celebrities do in their personal lives, but we’re a culture of busybodies and think we should be privy to every aspect of a star’s existence, so it’s only natural that we also want to know what she and her fiancé are up to for Valentine’s Day! Take it away, Christina:

“Honestly, I was trying to think of that before, I can’t remember’ a single Valentine’s Day!” she said, laughing. “I personally just don’t think I’ve ever made a big deal about Valentine’s Day. I mean. I like to get like flowers.”

Good thinking. Valentine’s Day sucks – and that’s coming from someone in a long-term relationship. Aren’t you supposed to treat your significant other like a king or queen every day, not just some commercialized bullshit holiday based on overpriced boxes of chocolate and smarmy Hallmark cards? Maybe Christina Ricci and I have more in common than we thought.
