David praises Christina McLarty for being such a hard-working mom
David Arquette finds a lot of inspiration in his wife Christina McLarty as she’s taking care of the family all while pregnant. In fact, the Scream actor calls Christina his “hero” for looking after their two-year-old son Charlie so well while expecting a second baby.
He shared with People magazine: “She’s doing good. It’s not easy, it’s so hard. I think the second pregnancy is a little harder than the first. She’s got morning sickness on this one.
Being pregnant and watching a little rascal that’s firmly in his terrible twos is pretty difficult. She a trooper, she’s doing great. She’s my hero.”
And the actor – who also has a teenage daughter with ex-wife Courteney Cox – is proud to see his son preparing for the role of a big brother.
He said: “Charlie is really cute about it. We have little books that prepare him. We’ll see how it goes when it all goes down. He’s a tricky little bugger.”
The couple had recently taken to Instagram to share the news of her pegnancy, adding: “So incredibly blessed and honored that my wife @christinaarquette is pregnant with a baby boy! Thank you Christina and humbled gratitude to G-D for this tremendous gift! Charlie and Coco are so excited and I am over the moon!!!”
Meanwhile, he had previously admitted that being close to his ex-wife sometimes feels awkward.
“It’s awkward, too – like, we get married, and there’s beautiful pictures of our wedding, and there’s also a picture of me and my ex, and it’s like, ‘Ooh! I’ve been married before!’
We have Coquette Productions so we produce things together and work together. It’s just awesome to work together. I love her. We were married for 13 years or something and we have the baby. You just can’t throw all that away.”
