Christina Applegate was born on November 25, 1971, in Hollywood, California, in the US. Her father Robert William Applegate was a record producer as well as a record company executive, while her mother Nancy Lee Priddy is a singer and actress. Shortly after her birth, her parents separated. Her father married again, and through this marriage, Applegate has two half-siblings named Alisa and Kyle.

Her acting career began at an early age. She made her TV debut in the soap opera ‘Days of Our Lives’ as a baby and made her film debut at the age of seven in the film ‘Jaws of Satan’.

She played a recurring role in ‘Heart of the City’ from 1986 to 1987.

Applegate married her longtime boyfriend, actor Jonathan Schaech, in October 2001. However, the union didn’t last, and they began divorce proceedings in November 2005. Around this time, Applegate met Lee Grivas, a fisherman, and aspiring photographer. The two connected through one of Applegate’s colleagues on the Broadway show Sweet Charity, though their relationship was reportedly a rocky one, as Applegate disapproved of his struggles with drugs.

Grivas died of an apparent drug overdose in 2008. Applegate was “profoundly saddened” by his death and added that Grivas was “missed beyond words.” Applegate became a mom in 2011, welcoming daughter Sadie Grace with musician Martyn LeNoble. The couple later tied the knot in 2013.
