Christina Ricci has shared that her eight-year-old son still sleeps in her bed.

The Sleepy Hollow actor, 42, explained her children's sleeping routine in a new interview, in which she also revealed the sleeping habits of her nine-month-old daughter Cleopatra.

The mum-of-two said her youngest child is already settled into a sleeping routine in her own bed.

“The fact that I can put her down in her crib and she just goes to sleep when my eight-year-old still sleeps with me is amazing,” she told People.

Christina said the first time she tried to settle her son Freddie into a night-time routine on his own, he screamed while ‘banging his head against the crib railing’.

Cleo, on the other hand, was completely different: “When we decided to try it and see how she would react to it, she just sort of whined for seven minutes and then laid down, clutched her little unicorn, and went to sleep. It was like she was ready to do it, andit was right for her.”

The Yellowjackets star shares Freddie with her ex-husband James Heerdegen. The pair were married for nearly seven years until she filed for divorce in July 2020.

She is now married to Mark Hampton, with whom she shares daughter Cleopatra.

Christina is starring in the highly anticipated Addams Family TV series Wednesday, in a role which has not yet been announced.

She previously appeared as Wednesday Addams in the beloved ‘90s films The Addams Family and its sequel Addams Family Values.

In the Netflix series, Wednesday – which drops on 23rd November – the titular role will be played by former Disney Channel star Jenna Ortega.

The cast also includes Catherine Zeta-Jones, Luis Guzmán, Isaac Ordonez and Gwendoline Christie.

In related news, Clueless actress Alicia Silverstone revealed she still shares a bed with her 11-year-old son.

In July this year, the 45-year-old mum discussed her parenting techniques on a recent podcast, where topic of conversation soon turned to bedtime routines.

Speaking on The Ellen Fisher Podcast, Alicia explained that she was 'following nature' when it came to her parenting style and she didn't care what mum-shamers had to say about it.

"I’m a natural mama, and I’m a loving mama. I believe in love, I believe in nature and our society is scared of nature and love.

"If you were in any kind of wild setting where there are animals ... if you put your baby over there, your baby is going to get eaten. It's not ideal for the baby to be over there."
