Christina Applegate was born to parents in the entertainment industry, Robert Applegate and Nancy Priddy. Her father was a record producer and executive, while her mother took to the stage as a singer and actress.

Still, Applegate spent years making a name for herself in the entertainment industry. The Los Native began with a commercial at months old until landing on-screen roles.

Although her career became a whirlwind of success, other aspects of her life came with challenges. The actress went through difficult moments, including her breast cancer battle, multiple sclerosis battle, and the sudden death of her former partner.

Applegate had her husband's hand to hold and shoulder to lean on through difficult moments. Martyn LeNoble stood as the actress' source of comfort as she struggled through life's most difficult moments.

Who Is Christina Applegate's Husband, Martyn LeNoble?

LeNoble is skilled in the bass but can also create tunes on the cello, keyboard, and guitar. Before his move to Los Angeles in 1989, LeNoble became a bassist for a local punk rock band. Speaking about his move to Los Angeles, LeNoble said:

“[...] It was weird, man. I was 20. I landed here with $75 in my pocket. The first night, I met Pete Weiss, Dick Rude, and Angelo Moore."

LeNoble played for several bands in the '90s, including The Cult, Too Free Stooges, and Thelonious, but Porno for Pyros became the mainstay of his successful career.

Another challenge came in 2008 when the "Up All Night" star was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a double mastectomy. She credits her now-husband for being her rock and support system at that time.

Besides his band, LeNoble has toured and collaborated with several iconic artists such as Sara McLachlan, Tom Morello, Dave Gahan, Jane's Addiction, and Scott Weiland.

Before marrying the actress, LeNoble had a first wife, a musician whose name is undisclosed. Their union resulted in the birth of LeNoble's first child, a daughter named Marlon. LeNoble has shared photos of his daughter with fans through social media.

According to her Instagram page, Marlon graduated from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts in 2019 and is a photographer.

After having two kids, LeNoble is unsure about adding to their brood. Although he wanted a big family, the energy to raise another child was his primary concern.

When Did Christina Applegate and Martyn LeNoble Get Together?

Applegate and LeNoble were friends for over a decade before they pursued a romantic relationship. Since becoming a couple, Applegate and LeNoble have kept their relationship out of the press.

However, news of their engagement surfaced in the media in 2010, and three years later, they tied the knot in a private wedding ceremony at the couple's Los Angeles residence. Their celebration saw Applegate in a Maria Lucia Hohan bridal dress and a Neil Lane diamond ring.

Their marriage only lasted a few years. After an amicable separation in 2005, their divorce was settled in 2007.

Before becoming husband and wife, Applegate and LeNoble have gone through tough times. Right after their engagement news, LeNoble received death threats on social media from someone who claimed Applegate was his.

Another challenge came in 2008 when the "Up All Night" star was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a double mastectomy. She credits her now-husband for being her rock and support system at that time. She said:

"I have a small but mighty support system, and Martyn has really been an incredible part of my life. Without him, I don't know if I could've gone through any of it. He came around at a time when there was a lot of loss in my life [...]."

According to Applegate, her then-boyfriend made her feel beautiful regardless of how her body changed. He also brought her joy and a reason to fight for another tomorrow.

The actress has since become an advocate for breast cancer awareness and even started Right Action for Women, a foundation that aims to help women detect breast cancer at an early stage.

Since Applegate was fortunate to have learned about her cancer early on, she hopes other women also have the same opportunity to test for breast cancer and save their lives.

Does Christina Applegate Have Kids with Martyn Lenoble?

Applegate and LeNoble are proud parents to a daughter, Sadie Grace. News of the "Samantha Who?" actress' pregnancy came before their wedding in 2010.

On January 27, 2011, Applegate gave birth to Sadie in Los Angeles. A source close to the couple said that the newborn was beautiful and that her parents were over the moon.

At 13 months old, Sadie was already listening to music through LeNoble. Her mom also revealed that Sadie liked Applegate's imitation of a monkey. "She loves it when I imitate a monkey – she starts imitating a monkey, too," she said. "Every day, there's something different that she thinks is hysterical."

Applegate credits her daughter for healing her after undergoing several challenges. She realized that motherhood opened her to a beautiful life and that Sadie was the one who tied all her blessings. However, she still tries to balance her family and career, with no signs of leaving the industry soon.

As a public figure, paparazzi scout to snap photos of Applegate and LeNoble. While she has come to terms with her compromised privacy, Applegate and LeNoble won't stand to have their daughter's privacy taken away.

Previously, LeNoble ended up detained over an alleged fight with a photographer. The paparazzi allegedly tried to snap photos of their two-year-old daughter, but things got physical when he was left with a warning. LeNoble was eventually released without charges, but his actions became a warning to the press.

Who Has Christina Applegate Dated in the Past? Was She Married Before?

Before marrying LeNoble, Applegate dated A-list Hollywood celebrities, including Brad Pitt. Applegate and Pitt were young and in love when fans swooned over their stories. However, their relationship ended in 1989, when she ditched the "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" star at the MTV Video Music Awards for another man.

A year after her confession, "Gilmore Girls" actor Sebastian Bach revealed that he was the other man. He claimed that his fling with Applegate did not last. The actress never verified Bach's confession.

Applegate walked down the aisle for the first time in October 2001 and married Johnathon Schaech. However, their marriage only lasted a few years. After an amicable separation in 2005, their divorce was settled in 2007.

Admittedly, Schaech found great difficulty in getting over his ex-wife. "My marriage was connected to my career, everything about my work. It was, you know, Christina is an actress. We were in the limelight. I loved her so much. I still love her so much," he said.

On the other hand, Applegate continued with her life and entered a relationship with Lee Grivas, whom she met in the "Sweet Charity" Broadway production in 2006. Although details about their relationship are unclear, the two eventually parted ways.

In 2008, Grivas passed away from an apparent drug overdose. The news undoubtedly devastated Applegate, who had nothing but kind words to describe her ex-boyfriend.

It didn't take long for Christina Applegate to find love again in the arms of LeNoble. The duo is now happily navigating through life together.
