- Christina Appelgate will be the World’s first Hippie, Type-A Mom

Christina Appelgate, it seems, is enjoying a fresh lease on her career after surviving breast cancer. The last two films she lent her voice for were hits, especially Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel (2009), which made more than $400 million at the box-office. Off late, she has been in the news a lot, and for good reasons. Her cancer survival has become a source of inspiration to many women, and Christina too has been campaigning hard for awareness of breast cancer. And the icing on the cake is her first child with fiancé Martyn LeNoble which is expected to arrive in January, 2011. She was born in a family that had been part of Hollywood. Her father, Robert, was a record producer and her mother, Nancy Lee, was an actress. Nancy used to take her to auditions with her which led to Christina making her advertising debut in a baby bottles commercial when she was just 5 months old. She made her TV show debut in Days of Our Life when she was 3 and made her film debut in Jaws of Satan (1981). By the time she was 10, she had acted in all kinds of media. But she did finish her high schooling. In fact, she was a good student. But the acting bug had bitten her at a very young age, so she chose to pursue acting. Television proved to be her turf as she regularly did acting cameos on many hit shows. This led to her landing a great role in Married…With Children (1987–1997). The sitcom was a hit and was on the air for ten years before it got cancelled owing to poor ratings. She found another hit sitcom in Jesse (1998–2000), but the show was taken off air abruptly after two seasons. Third time did not prove to be the charm as her third show Samantha Who? (2007–2009) was taken off air as Christina was recuperating from her cancer surgery. Despite all of this, it was on television that she achieved her most success. She even won an Emmy Award for best guest appearance as Amy Green sister of Rachel Green on the sitcom Friends. She became the only female actress, and second person after Bruce Willis, to win an Emmy this way. Films-wise her career has seen a lot of ups and downs. Christina’s film career has been a mixture of lead and supporting roles. She has mostly done comedy films and found more success in them. It’s her recent films that have done really well. Her personal life though has not been as controversial as one would have thought seeing how most child stars end up. She married her long-time sweet heart Johnathon Schaech in October, 2001 but the marriage fell apart a few years later. They couple got divorced in 2007. He started dating musician Martyn LeNoble in 2008, and the two got engaged on Valentine’s Day 2010. They are also expecting their first child.
