Less than a month after having daughter Sadie Grace, Christina Applegate is showing her off to the world!
The actress and her fiance Martyn LeNoble posed for People with their new baby, whom Applegate calls her "miracle."
"I felt my heart literally open up for the first time and like wrap itself around her. It was profound," Applegate, 39, tells the magazine. "And I'm more in love with her every minute of the day."
She admits it's going to take her some time to get used to being a mom.
"Sometimes I stand there going, 'I'm not doing any of this right!'" she says. "And then I get this big man belch out of her and I go, 'Ah, we accomplished this together.' "
Applegate was diagnosed with cancer in 2008 and says she was ready to focus her life on something else.
"I've had to talk about that word [cancer] more than I've ever had to talk about a word in my life," she says. "After a while you're like, 'There's got to be something else to me.' "
And she says Sadie is the best medicine of all.
"She's healed me in so many ways," she says. "She's just made my life so much better. She's opened my whole soul."
