03/04/2016 at 10:30 AM ET

Christina Ricci has wowed a generation with her films — Casper, The Addams Family, Now and Then and Monster, to name a few — but these days the actress is focused on entertaining one audience member: her son Freddie.

Ricci, 36, and husband James Heerdegen welcomed their little boy in August 2014.

“Having a child changed everything,” Ricci, 36, told PEOPLE at The Sound Lab presented by Audi at New York City’s Whitney Museum of American Art on Wednesday. “It’s made everything in my life actually important and matter. I now have to take things seriously, and I never did before.”

She adds: “I want to succeed for him. My choices matter more.”

“How’s your baby boy?” Goreski, 38, asked The Addams Family actress. (PEOPLE confirmed in August 2014 that Ricci and her husband James Heerdegen had welcomed a son.)

“Amazing!” Ricci, 35, replied.

When Goreski asked how Ricci’s dog Karen was adjusting, Ricci said: “There’s the two of them. Freddie and Karen are best friends,” revealing her son’s name for the first time.
