Christina Applegate is a first time mom. Applegate, 39 and her musician husband Martyn LeNoble welcomed a daughter, Sadie Grace LeNoble, into the world last Thursday [January 27] according to Us Weekly, weighing 7lbs 8oz. "Actress Christina Applegate and fiancé, musician, Porno for Pyros founding member Martyn LeNoble, welcomed daughter Sadie Grace LeNoble on Thursday, Jan. 27, 2011, in Los Angeles," reps for the star said in a statement to People. "Mother and daughter are doing great." Applegate and LeNoble have been dating for three years and got engaged on Valentine’s Day last year and announced the pregnancy in July. In August, Applegate revealed what type of parent she wants to be. "I'll probably be a little bit hippie and a little bit Type A. I'll take from what my mother did, which was way hippie and like, 'Do what you wanna do,' and bring some things that I know from watching my friends raise their kids.”
