Warning: If you run into mom-to-be Christina Applegate, don’t touch her belly. “It’s a little strange. None of us go up to non-pregnant people [and touch them] and ask how they’re feeling,” she says.
Christina Applegate had that gorgeous glow that only impending motherhood can bring when she stopped by Conan last night. The 38-year-old, who is expecting her first child with fiance Martyn LeNoble, 41, early next year, joked that she could give birth at any second. And she admitted that she’s not a fan of people touching her pregnant belly. “People think they can just do that to pregnant women. It’s still our stomach — it’s kind of weird,” she informed host Conan O’Brien. Can you relate, HollyMoms?
She also doesn’t like people talking to her tummy. “Ugh, when they get close and start talking to it — you know they’re not talking to that,” she laughed, before revealing that she and Martyn have a name picked out for their baby girl but she’s staying mum on the details. “We do have a name. We actually had a name before and we were telling people and they would just look at us funny. So because of the judgment we were getting, we’re keeping this one a secret,” she said. We can’t wait to find out what her child’s name is going to be! Any guesses?
And it seems that Christina’s daughter is destined to be in showbiz. The little one was kicking up a storm during the interview. Looks like Conan already has a new fan! And Christina even joked that she could give birth right there on the stage. “I’m so pregnant,” she bemoaned. “I’m very close.” After having survived a battle with breast cancer two years ago, she’s feeling very blessed to be having this baby. “I feel great and the bambino is good,” she says.
