Christina Applegate gives birth to baby girl

Christina Applegate has just given birth to her first child

Congratulations to Christina Applegate, who has just given birth to her first child, a daughter, Sadie Grace.  In 2008, the actress was diagnosed with breast cancer and  made the decision to go for a bilateral mastectomy when  a test for the BRCA gene came back positive.

Initially after her breast biopsy results, she had been  told she’d need six weeks of radiation instead of chemotherapy, as her cancer had not spread to the lymph nodes. Christina was given two options…go forward with the radiation treatments and continue testing for the rest of her life or have both breasts removed. She later underwent reconstructive surgery.
