13 Celebs Who Where Pregnant While Filming And Where Able To Hide It

Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon had her pick of lovely, billowy, empire-waist gowns in dark tones to disguise her developing pregnancy while filming Vanity Fair (courtesy of son Deacon). She also had the advantage of rich, low-light sets that allowed her to cover her belly when the camera was on her. Is there a more lovely method to divert attention away from a pregnancy?

Isla Fisher

Burke and Hare, directed by John Landis, features Isla Fisher dressed in enough Regency-period clothes — dresses, capes, and fur handwarmers — to conceal a baby elephant. She didn't really need them to hide her pregnancy. The actress was just three months pregnant at the time, a secret she kept from her co-stars until the film was finished.

Claire Danes

Carrie Mathison of Homeland isn't in the cast. From seeing Claire Danes' CIA role on the Showtime series, we know this. Claire, on the other hand, is no slacker when it comes to taking care of business. She worked on the physically demanding show throughout her pregnancy, and when it became clear, she had producers cut off her pregnant abdomen. We're at a loss for words.

Emily Blunt

Emily Blunt has had to conceal her pregnancy in two separate films. She did so for the first time in 2014's Into the Woods, and then again in 2016's The Girl on the Train. Meryl Streep, Emily's co-star in the film Into the Woods, later joked that the producers had come up with clever ways to hide Emily's baby belly in that film. "They kept putting James Corden in front of her belly button and lifting her apron higher and higher," Meryl explained. Emily hid behind a bunch of trees as well.

Blake Lively

The Shallows, Blake Lively's shark attack thriller, has her almost entirely in a wetsuit performing all kinds of perilous stunts, and she filmed it while pregnant! Blake subsequently said, "They didn't employ a stunt duplicate until the last two weeks of shooting." "There wasn't a single sequence that wasn't stunt-heavy every single day." Isn't that some great work she performed there?

Kerry Washington

Actress Kerry Washington says it's easy to tell which episodes of Scandal were shot while she was pregnant in season six. "For the first time, you could play a truly fun game... 'Find the Bump' has five episodes ""I told Good Morning America," she said. Her tummy was hidden "under flowers, behind Prada purses, behind large coats and capes" by the props and costume department, she said.

Gal Gadot

Gal Gadot, who was five months pregnant at the time, had to rely on CGI to hide her baby bump during Wonder Woman reshoots. Green cloth was placed on the front of her outfit to allow her belly to be taken away in postproduction, according to Entertainment Weekly. "On close-up I looked very much like Wonder Woman," Gal told the magazine. "I looked quite odd in wide views, like Wonder Woman pregnant with Kermit the Frog."

Penelope Cruz

When Penelope Cruz became pregnant while filming Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, her sister stepped in to help. Mónica Cruz is a Spanish actress who looks so much like her sister Penelope that the director just put Monica as Penelope's stunt double for the more difficult scenes that Penelope couldn't do due to her pregnancy. Genius.

Jill Scott

Jill Scott allegedly struggled to conceive, so having a child was both a blessing and a burden for her. Jill was filming The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency in Africa while pregnant, complete with blistering heat, bugs, and 14-hour workdays. Her character was not pregnant on the show, so her large, patterned clothing helped her hide her belly.

Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie found out she was expecting a child while filming the emotionally draining thriller The Changeling and kept it a secret until the end of the project. Angelina Jolie's portrayal of a heartbroken mother who loses her son apparently inspired her to want to become a mother again, despite the fact that she already has four children. Her wish was granted twice. She gave birth to twins Vivienne and Knox a few months after the film completed.

Halle Berry

Remember Halle Berry as Storm, the mutant superhero who wears a skintight suit? Not often an issue for the goddess-like actress — until she discovered she was three months pregnant as filming for X-Men: Days of Future Past began. It's a good thing she was able to fast-forward a lot of her scenes, because she stated she immediately started bursting out of the costume.

Angela Kingsley

During season four of The Office, there were numerous images of Angela Kinsey's character sitting in her cubicle as Angela's real-life pregnancy proceeded. The morality cop at Dunder Mifflin wasn't quite ready to have a family.

Naomi Watts

Naomi Watts found out she was pregnant barely two weeks into filming Eastern Promises, a Russian crime thriller. After hopping on a motorcycle and driving through actual traffic for a scene (oops! ), she got the news. When she gave birth to her son, Sasha, a few months later, her research to prepare for her work as a midwife came in helpful.
