WHAT CHRISTINA APPLEGATE SAID ABOUT HER HEALTH

In 2021, Christina Applegate, a breast cancer survivor, revealed that she had been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and received support from her colleagues and fans. She also opened up about how she navigates life with the condition:

“With MS, most exercises can be scary due to numbness in feet and legs. So sitting and knowing I'm still using my body is awesome.”

Admittedly, it has been a challenging journey, but the actress continues to move forward and get better each day. Applegate has her family by her side for guidance and support despite her struggles. Let's take a closer look inside her private life.

WHO WAS CHRISTINA APPLEGATE'S FIRST HUSBAND?

In 2001, Applegate married fellow actor Johnathon Schaech in Palm Springs, whom she began dating in 1997. However, their marriage only lasted a few years, and in 2005, they separated. 

According to their statement, the decision to call it quits was mutual. However, it left both parties broken. After finalizing their divorce in 2007, Schaech began dating again – an abrupt decision that caused him another failed relationship. He said:

“I wasn't healed [after the divorce]. I hadn't taken time to heal myself from that broken heart, and I just wanted you to shine and not me to shine at the same time.”

He married Jana Kramer in 2010 after two years of dating but eventually called it quits only 12 days later. After three years, Schaech married Julie Solomon, with whom he now shares two children.

HOW DID CHRISTINA APPLEGATE'S SECOND HUSBAND SUPPORT HER?

Meanwhile, Applegate also moved on with her life and started dating musician Martyn LeNoble, a member of the band Porno for Pyros. LeNoble joined the stage with Thelonious Monster, the Too Free Stooges, Porno for Pyros, Stephen Perkins, and Perry Farrell when he moved to Los Angeles.

One of her favorite mom moments was holding her newborn for the first time.

The couple dated for a few years before becoming husband and wife in February 2013. According to their rep, LeNoble and Applegate were "surrounded by family in a private ceremony at their home in Los Angeles."

LeNoble was a shoulder to cry on and a hand to hold for the award-winning actress during her most challenging times, including her breast cancer and multiple sclerosis diagnosis. Applegate 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 where there was a lot of loss [...].”

Specifically, one of her favorite mom moments was holding her newborn for the first time. It felt like a new beginning that she could not wait to unravel.
