The Ricci-Heerdegen household is now a family of three: Christina Ricci has reportedly given birth to her first child. 

The petite “Addams Family” alum, who also birthed the body-bending hashtag #riccing, and her husband, James Heerdegen, have welcomed a baby boy, according to an Us Weekly report out Friday. 

No further details, such as the birth date or name, were made available at the time.

The 34-year-old stepped out at Los Angeles International Airport back in May with a baby bump, which obviously prompted a spate of pregnancy rumors. Ricci confirmed (via her publicist) soon after that she was with child, the mag said.


The former child star and Heerdegen met on the set of 2011’s canceled ABC drama “Pan Am.” She starred in the period drama, and he worked on the set as a dolly grip. The couple wed in October at Manhattan’s Harold Pratt House & Peterson Hall, and Ricci wore a Givenchy gown, according to reports. 

Reps for Ricci did not immediately respond to The Times’ requests for comment.

The “Casper” alum is set to appear in two projects: She lent her vocals to the animated film “The Hero of Color City,” due in October, and will star alongside Susan Sarandon, Sharon Stone, Laura Dern, Eva Amurri Martino and Andie MacDowell in Paul Duddridge’s drama “Mothers Day,” due in May 2015.
