What kind of mom will expectant Christina Applegate be? A mix!

“I’ll probably be a little bit hippie and a little bit Type A,” the actress, 38, told PEOPLE at Tuesday’s Los Angeles premiere of Going the Distance, which she attended with fiancé Martyn Lenoble.

“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.”

I think she is having a girl, on E! she said something along the lines of ‘getting down to her….or his level and telling them how serious I am’

She said she didn’t know what she was having in another article about the nursery.
