Love took on a whole new meaning after Christina Applegate welcomed daughter Sadie Grace on January 27.
"I've said 'I love you' to people over the years but I was lying. I was totally lying," Applegate, who is engaged to musician Martyn LeNoble, told CNN at Wednesday's L.A. premiere of her movie "Hall Pass." "I didn't know what really loving someone was until [Sadie] came into my world."
Applegate and co-star Owen Wilson, who recently became a dad to a baby boy, shared photos of their babies at the premiere. The actress couldn't help but gush about first-time parenthood: "It's fantastic and remarkable and all those words to describe how brilliant it all is!"
Even her rumored 18-hour delivery? "It's sort of an urban legend," Applegate says of the reports, before clarifying that Sadie's labor didn't take nearly so long. "It was a process. Let's just call it a process."
