Christina Applegate knows moms who are very hands off, and moms who are very hands on. She figures she can be both.

"I'll probably be a little bit hippie and a little bit Type A," the actress, 38, told PEOPLE at Tuesday's premiere of Going the Distance in Los Angeles. "I'll take from what my mother did, which was way hippie and like 'Do what you wanna do,' and bring some things that I know from watching my friends raise their kids. An amalgamation of sorts."

Pregnant with her first child with fiancé Martyn Lenoble, Applegate says she's been craving certain types of food – well, OK, all types of food. "Just keep going with it in my mouth," she says.





Applegate says in general she's been feeling good, although one aspect of pregnancy is causing a bit of stress: designing the nursery.

"It's gender neutral because we don't know [if it's a boy or girl]," she says. "I'm trying. It's becoming a bigger project than it was supposed to be, unfortunately."
