Actress Emily Rutherfurd, 31, joins Julia Louis-Dreyfus (old Christine) on the CBS comedy The New Adventures of Old Christine as the new Christine: Her role? The younger, new girlfriend to old Christine’s ex.

WHAT’S NEW WITH THE NEW CHRISTINE?

I’m pregnant and the baby is due June 12. The timing couldn’t have been better. We started production in September, so I didn’t have to mask it with my wardrobe. They put my character in flowy shirts and tight jeans.

WHAT PREGNANCY ADVICE DID JULIA GIVE YOU?

She was very supportive. She said, “Just do it. Family is the most important thing.”

WHAT ARE YOU EATING?

Carbs—lots of bagels and fries.

WHAT BABY NAMES DID JULIA LIKE?

We talked a lot about names but I can’t tell you because I don’t want everybody to know what names we’re thinking about before the baby arrives.
