The 38-year-old breast cancer survivor is expecting her first child and admitted on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that she is going “a little cuckoo.”
One of the things we love about Christina Applegate is her sense of humor and that was on full display when the mom-to-be walked out onto the set of the Jimmy Kimmel Show sporting an enormous baby bump, which she then revealed to just be a T-shirt she’d shoved up her dress.
Crazy, right? Well, Christina is blaming her pregnancy.
“I’m like everything that you read in the books, I’ve got it all,” she told Jimmy. “The cravings. The morning sickness I had for a really long time. The psychosis. If anyone’s been pregnant you know exactly what I’m talking about. You kinda go a little cuckoo.”
The 38-year-old — who memorably joked about her breast reconstruction following a double mastectomy in 2008 (telling Good Morning America, “I’m going to have cute boobs until I’m 90. I’ll have the best boobs in the nursing home”) — went on to describe how her pregnancy is affecting her personality. “You’re stepping back from yourself and you’re watching this insane monster in front of you, that’s you. And you want to stop her, but she is kind of fun to watch,” she laughed. “That’s sort of what’s been happening.”
And it happens to a lot of women, so we’re just glad that a famous one wasn’t afraid to stand up and say: Pregnancy is making me nutty as a fruitcake! Isn’t it great?!
