The ‘Homeland’ Actress told HollywoodLife.com all about about her preparations for her appearance the 2013 Emmy Awards — and finding a gown that accommodated her 9-month bump! Plus, she explained how she’s getting ready to welcome her first child.
Morena Baccarin is expecting her first child with her husband Austin Chick any minute now. HollywoodLife.com spoke to Morena about her plan for the baby — and how she was determined to make it to the 2013 Emmy Awards “no matter what!”
Morena Baccarin Picks Her 2013 Emmys Gown
Morena told HollywoodLife.com at the Los Angeles Confidential magazine’s pre-Emmy party in her honor on Thursday, September 19th at Mr. C Beverly Hills that her pregnancy made dressing for her Emmys much more difficult.
“It is hard, it makes things very limited in the shapes that you can wear,” she said. “Someone, someday, will make a killing designing killer clothes for pregnant people. They are hard to find.” Morena’s sultry red dress definitely came together and looked hot on the carpet!
She definitely wasn’t going to let anything stop her from attending the show — even with her due date looming! “It’s my first nomination, so I [was going to] be there no matter what!” she said.
Morena Baccarin Baby Plans: How She’s Preparing
Morena explained that she’s ”a little behind” on planning her baby’s nursery, “because when they first come out they don’t need a lot, and I have been working a lot.”
When Morena devotes more time to the nursery, “It will be eclectic I am sure. I am going to put a skull and crossbones that I found in Charlotte that is made out of metal that I thought was bada**. That also may scare my child, so I don’t know.”
Morena has been working out and eating healthily — even with what she calls her “typical pregnant women” cravings — “pickles and watermelon!” She said:
I have been swimming and doing laps. Which is great because I am weightless. It feels nice to be in the water.
What do YOU think, HollyMoms? Are you excited that Morena’s baby is almost here?
