It’s [having a child] made everything in my life actually important and matter. I now have to take things seriously, and I never did before. I want to succeed for him. My choices matter more.

Christina Ricci And Her Ex-Husband James Heerdegen
Ricci and her ex-husband, Heerdegen, met for the first time in 2011. They were both working on the set of Pan Am. They began dating shortly afterward and tied the knot on October 26, 2013.
The couple welcomed their son, Freddie, a year into their marriage. Ricci filed for divorce from Heerdegen in July 2020 and cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their split.
According to People, the actress had obtained a domestic violence restraining order against Heerdegen in January 2021 after she accused him of physical abuse. The outlet reported Ricci claimed she was subjected to “severe physical and emotional abuse” by her estranged husband with many acts of abuse taking place in front of their son.
Heerdegen’s attorney denied all the allegations of abuse in a statement, and their divorce remained contentious for quite some time. The two finally settled on custody arrangements for their son back in April 2021.
Freddie would travel with Ricci to Canada, where she was set to film a new project. Heerdegen could continue visiting their son through his “regular monitored visitation time.” He was also given 15-minute FaceTime calls with Freddie three times per week.
