Christina Ricci revealed a piece of very happy news to her fans and followers on Instagram on Tuesday, August 10. The 41-year-old is expecting her second child after divorcing her estranged husband James Heerdegen in 2020 against whom she also got a restraining order this year amid allegations of domestic violence. She is also a mother to a six-year-old boy, Freddie Heerdegen, who she shares with her former husband.

Taking to Instagram on Tuesday, August 10, Ricci shared a sonogram picture with a caption that read, “Life keeps getting better.” In her post, she also tagged celebrated hairstylist Mark Hampton, implying that he is the father of the child. Hampton also shared several photos of the sonogram on his Instagram account with the same caption that the ‘Sleepy Hollow’ star used. He also called himself the father of Ricci’s baby by replying to a well-wisher as, “daddy shark do do do do do do.”

Hampton is a popular makeup and hairstylist, who has experience working with several A-Listers and big-name brands, including Banana Republic and Hugo Boss. He has also worked with Elon Musk's girlfriend Grimes. He was the one who styled her hair and did makeup for a V Magazine fashion shoot.

Besides, Hampton has done hairstyling for Oscar-nominated actress Carey Mulligan in February 2020 while she was shooting for the cover of Heroine Magazine. He had also styled the Olsen twins in the past. The noteworthy work collection of Hampton includes editorials for Vogue, Dazed and Confused, Elle, and Q Magazine. He has also been a part of fashion shows for Miu Miu, Marc Jacobs, Prada, Louis Vuitton, and Calvin Klein.



About his and Ricci’s relationship, it’s not clear when the two started dating each other. But in July, she wished Hampton a happy birthday on her Instagram page. Posting a photo of him, she wrote, “Happy Birthday @markhamptonhair. favorite person, gorgeous human, bringer of all things happy, magical and good ♥️♥️♥️I love you ♥️♥️♥️♥️ this next year is going to be the best one yet ♥️.”



Meanwhile, the latest news came months after Ricci and her ex reached a custody arrangement after their nasty divorce. ‘The Addams Family’ star was given custody of their son after she shifted to Vancouver, Canada, to film a new project, while Heerdegen was granted visitation rights.

Ricci and Heerdegen had tied the knot in 2013 and welcomed Freddie the next year. At the time, she told Net-a-Porter's digital magazine The Edit, “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. I'm a completely different person than I was before I had my child.”
