Mattress matter. Christina Ricci has revealed that she and her 8-year-old son, Freddie, still share a bed.
In a chat with People magazine, the "Yellowjackets" actress said she tried to sleep-train Freddie when he was younger, but she bristled at the idea of letting the young one cry it out while he was in his room. Plus, it became safer for Freddie to share his mom's bed.
"He screamed himself hoarse and started banging his head against the crib railing," she said of the child she shares with ex James Heerdegen.
Interestingly, Christina's 9-month-old daughter, Cleopatra, sleeps soundly in a crib.
"With Cleo, when we decided to try it and see how she would react to it, she just sort of whined for about seven minutes and then laid down, clutched her little unicorn and went to sleep," Christina said. "It was like she was ready and she wanted to do it, and it was right for her."
The 42-year-old Emmy nominee added, "The fact that I can put her down in her crib and she just goes to sleep when my 8-year-old still sleeps with me is amazing."
Christina joins a host of other Hollywood parents who are raising their kids in a somewhat unconventional manner —Ice-T's wife Coco Austin was breastfeeding their daughter until she was 5 years old; "Clueless" star Alicia Silverstone recently acknowledged that her 11-year-old son sleeps in the same bed as her; Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard said their children sleep in their bedroom, but not in their bed.
