Christina Applegate is Health magazine's April cover girl, and the 40-year-old star/new mom opens up about wanting another baby and the fears she still has about the breast cancer she battled four years ago.

"I would love to have one more," Applegate says about wanting another child in addition to her one-year-old daughter with fiancé Martyn LeNoble, Sadie Grace. "I know I'm 40, and people are gonna say, 'Hmm…' I'll probably have to harvest in the next year to make sure we have a backup plan," she laughs.

She also gets candid about distrusting the medical community after her bout with breast cancer, which resulted in her having to get a double mastectomy.

"That kind of thing pisses me off about the medical community, that they're still spewing lies about who's getting this disease," she says. "I'm probably more – unfortunately, at this point – paranoid than I'd ever been before about when I go get my checkups and everything. I'm just scared. And I don't want to be."

On a lighter note, the Up All Night star reveals her surprising guilty pleasure -- reality talent competitions.

"I get into the Idol. American Idol. I have been known to vote," she says. "And also for So You Think You Can Dance. For that I vote, I'm pretty hard-core."
