Christina Applegate is in no rush to return to acting and insists being a stay-at-home mum is the “best job” she’s ever had.

The 41-year-old star will soon reprise her role as reporter Veronica Corningstone in cult comedy sequel Anchorman: The Legend Continues.

But she admits her career has taken a backseat to motherhood since she gave birth to her daughter Sadie in 2011 and she’s happy to trade her glamorous life for being a stay-at-home mum.

Christina appeared to warn fans on Wednesday night not to expect another big movie role from her anytime soon as her family has taken priority.

“For the last few months I have been a stay at home mom. It is the most gratifying job I have ever had,” she tweeted her 1.3 million followers.

Christina seems to be settling well into married life.

The actress wed Sadie’s father, musician Martyn LeNoble, on February 23 at their Los Angeles home.

The couple have been together four years.

Christina has credited Martyn with helping to get her through some of the toughest times in her life.

"I have a small but mighty support system and Martyn has really been an incredible part of my life," she said following her 2008 breast cancer diagnosis and subsequent recovery.

"Without him, I don't know if I could've gone through any of it. He came around at a time when there was a lot of loss in my life on many levels, so he's been a really incredible help."
