Christina Ricci has made a huge name for herself throughout the years. While she is most popularly known for her role in the Addams family, she’s done hit projects like “Yellowjackets” as well.
Ricci recently spoke with People to talk about her parenting style. She revealed that her 8-year-old son still sleeps in her bed when her 9-month-old baby sleeps in the crib.
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.
The actress is surprised by her daughter, Cleopatra Ricci Hampton, falling asleep naturally. She still tried her best to sleep-train her 8-year-old son, though she wasn’t comfortable with him going out of control without her presence.
He screamed himself hoarse and started banging his head against the crib railing.
Ricci said that she wanted to try to condition her daughter to sleep in the crib along with her husband, Mark Hampton. She revealed that her daughter initially whined for a few minutes, but ultimately fell asleep.
But 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. It was like she was ready, and she wanted to do it, and it was right for her.
Ricci also added that her son also has certain elder brother duties, and often supervises his sister’s playtime. That allows her to look after the house. The actress has a vibrant family, and she spends a lot of time making sure that she’s a good mom.
