Christina’s Doing Well with Help from Boyfriend

It was just this past summer that Christina Applegate was diagnosed with breast cancer and just over 6 months later, she’s back and better than ever! Christina has recently given an interview with People where she talks about the cancer, about having reconstructive breast surgery and of course, the new love of her life that has helped her get through it all. From People,

“She has an “angel” of a boyfriend, Dutch bass player Martyn Lenoble, “who loves me from head to toe.” She has a cozy Malibu beach house that she calls “the best thing I’ve ever done for myself.” And, after a very public battle with breast cancer that has given her a gratifying “feeling of purpose,” Christina Applegate has a new lease on life.

“I used to be really shy but I started to come into my own in my late 20s and early 30s,” Applegate, 37, tells PEOPLE in the cover interview for the annual Most Beautiful issue – her first interview since her reconstructive breast surgery last November. “Now I’m not afraid to speak up in a room full of people and be a part of the conversation.”

The Samantha Who? star says she’s finding balance and embracing her body after undergoing a double mastectomy in July.

“You have to get through the physical transformations then buck up, go to work and try to be the normal, happy Christina for everyone around you,” she says.

One source of strength has been Lenoble. “He’s been a friend for about 13 years,” Applegate says. “Our relationship gets stronger and stronger. I’m really lucky.”

And, more importantly, he makes the actress feel “beautiful” about her new body.

“I’m very grateful to Martyn for coming along at a time that he did because he’s been my rock through all of this,” Applegatesays. “He gave me something to really want to live for and something to smile about.”

I have always been a big fan of Christina’s ever since I grew up with her on Married…with Children although she was really the only one on the show that I could tolerate. When she started Samantha Who? I was so excited that she was once again going to become a regular part of my programming and I am now so happy to hear that she is doing so well! She really is an inspiration to women everywhere!
