Christina Applegate’s ex-husband has congratulated the actress on her recent nuptials, while insisting he still loves her “very much”.

The 41-year-old star wed musician Martyn LeNoble on February 23 at their Los Angeles home.

It is the second marriage for the Christina, who was wed to actor-and- director Johnathon Schaech from 2001 to 2007.

Johnathon insists the pair are still friends.

And in wishing her well, the 43-year-old confessed he harbours much love for his ex-wife.

“I love her very much and I’m very happy for her and her family,” he told Us Weekly.

Johnathon also remarried. He exchanged vows with actress Jana Kramer in July 2010 but the couple separated a month later. Their divorce was finalised the following summer.

Christina, meanwhile, has enjoyed a solid relationship with Martyn.

The couple have been together for four years and share a two-year-old daughter, Sadie Grace.

They tied the knot on Saturday evening in front of close friends and family.

"[They were] surrounded by family in a private ceremony at their home in Los Angeles," Christina's representative told People magazine earlier this week.

The couple have remained tight-lipped about the details of the nuptials, but Martyn hinted about how happy he is on his Twitter page.

"What a glorious day!" he wrote on Saturday.

Christina has been candid about her love for Martyn in the past.

The actress, who survived a 2008 breast cancer diagnosis, credits her husband with getting her through the difficult time.

"I have a small but mighty support system and Martyn has really been an incredible part of my life," she said.

"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."
