Actress Christina Ricci recently opened up about her children's sleep habits in a recent interview with People saying that she still sleeps with her 8-year-old son. The "Yellowjackets" star has two children, Freddie, 8, who she shares with her ex-husband James Heerdegen and Cleo, 9 months, who she shares with her current husband Mark Hampton.

When speaking about her experience sleep training her son, she told People, "He screamed himself hoarse and started banging his head against the crib railing." She noted that when she welcomed her baby girl Cleo to the world, she was curious to see how she would take to sleeping in her own crib. "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," she shared. "It was like she was ready and she wanted to do it, and it was right for her."

"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," she continued.

Ricci recently attended the 2022 Emmy Awards where she was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in the Drama category for her role as Misty in the TV series "Yellowjackets," but lost to Julia Garner for her role in "Ozark." She noted that although she didn't bring home a trophy, she was still a winner in Freddie's eyes "because he saw me on live television."

"The Addams Family" star spoke about how helpful Freddie has been since the birth of his baby sister, Cleo, and how luckily there has been no sibling jealousy. "He can help me make a bottle. He can help me in the bathtub with her. It is really great. There hasn't been a lot of sibling jealousy or anything. That has been a huge relief."
