“I was just thinking” [her full name] would be Cleo,” she said, before she jokingly added, “I was like, ‘well, we’ll figure this out later,’ but he figured it out while I was recovering.” 

The Addams Family actress also shared how her 7-year-old son Freddie Heerdegen—who she shares with ex James Heerdegen—has reacted to becoming an older brother.  

He loves to be a big brother, and that’s what makes him great. She said that he kisses her every day. “He does not like the lack of sleep and chaos that’s going on in the house, but, you know, he’s being very good.” 

Maybe he’ll follow his mother’s example. “He wants to be an actor, but I’ve told him that he should spend all this time honing his craft,” Christina, who kicked off her career at age 7, shared, “so then when he’s 18 or 23 or whatever, he’s already spent all of his time getting really good.”
