The 38-year-old actress and her fiancé are expecting their first baby. The couple dated for two years before becoming engaged on Valentine's Day.

In 2008, Applegate had a preventative double mastectomy to keep breast cancer from returning. She credits her fiancé for helping her recover from the ordeal.

The baby's due date has not yet been announced.
