All about love! Christina Ricci, Hunter Doohan and more Wednesday stars have found their happily ever afters off screen.
The series, which premiered in November 2022, introduced Wednesday (Jenna Ortega) as a student who attempts to figure out the identity of the murderous town monster while also adjusting to life at Nevermore Academy.
Christina Ricci, who rose to stardom playing the iconic character in the ’90s films The Addams Family and Addams Family Values, surprised fans when she scored the role of Marilyn Thornhill. Ahead of her appearance, the actress made headlines for her dating history.
While working on ABC’s Pan Am in 2011, Ricci first met James Heerdegen, and Us Weekly confirmed their romance one year later. After she was spotted wearing a ring on her left hand in 2013, Us broke the news of Ricci and Heerdegen’s engagement.
The couple, who got married later that year, expanded their family with son Freddie in 2014. Ricci later opened up about how her life changed since she got married and became a mother.
“Marriage shows you your flaws in how you deal with things and having a child forces you to grow up at the speed of light,” she told Net-A-Porter’s The Edit in March 2017. “I’m a completely different person than I was before I had my child. Because I was so celebrated for being a child, I think I held onto that immaturity for a very long time. It was the thing that made me special. Then at a certain point, like 35, it’s not so special to be immature.”
Heerdegen was later ordered by a judge to stay 100 yards away from Ricci and stripped of visitation rights with Freddie and their dog after he was accused of domestic violence by his estranged wife. In court documents obtained by Us in January 2021, the Golden Globe nominee claimed that the abuse started in 2013 and escalated in 2020 amid the coronavirus pandemic.
In April 2021, the film producer was granted visitation rights, while the Sleepy Hollow star has sole legal custody of their only child together.
Ricci later moved on with Mark Hampton and became a mother for a second time when she gave birth to their daughter, Cleopatra, in 2021. The pair tied the knot in October 2021, two months before their child’s arrival.
Doohan, for his part, also found The One in husband Fielder Jewett. “Trying to sum up your wedding day in an Instagram caption is hard,” he wrote via Instagram in June 2022. “It was absolutely the best day of our lives! Thank you to everyone who made it so special! ❤️.”
