Christina Ricci is a bride-to-be! The actress confirmed that she’s engaged to boyfriend James Heerdegen at an event in L.A. Friday.
Ricci met her future husband on the set of her canceled ABC series Pan Am and they supposedly started dating at the beginning of 2012. Back in October, it looked like she was wearing an engagement ring on the red carpet, but she wouldn’t comment on what the rock meant until now.
“Yeah. [We got engaged] a couple months back,” Ricci confirmed (via Us Weekly).
But having a new rock doesn’t mean the star is going to get all mushy for Valentine’s Day in a couple of weeks. “Honestly, I was trying to think of that before, I can’t remember’ a single Valentine’s Day!” she said Friday. “I personally just don’t think I’ve ever made a big deal about Valentine’s Day. I mean. I like to get like flowers.”
This will be the first marriage for Ricci, who was engaged to actor Owen Benjamin before they split in 2009. Heerdegen, according to IMDb, has worked in the camera and electrical department on a variety of films and TV shows, including Men in Black 3 and Sex and the City 2.
