Christina Applegate found her happily ever after with Martyn LeNoble.

The Dead to Me star and the musician began dating two years before their engagement in 2010. Less than one year later, Applegate and LeNoble welcomed their daughter, Sadie Grace, in January 2011.

Us Weekly confirmed in February 2013 that the pair tied the knot in a private ceremony. Their wedding marked both of their second marriages. (Applegate was previously married to Johnathon Schaech for six years until their 2007 divorce. LeNoble, for his part, welcomed daughter Marlon with his previous wife in 1997.)

LeNoble has been by Applegate’s side for both her breast cancer diagnosis in 2008 and her battle with multiple sclerosis, which she revealed in 2021.

Applegate exclusively told Us about her now-husband’s support in 2009. “I have a small but mighty support system and Martyn has really been an incredible part of my life,” Applegate gushed. “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 on many levels, so he’s been a really incredible help.”
