Pregnancy? What pregnancy?

Megan found out she was pregnant just two weeks into filming the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, but that did not stop her from working hard.

However, that hard work did not come without a price — all of the running, jumping, and other stunt work took a toll on her during her first trimester.

“I got pregnant with Bodhi two weeks into filming Ninja Turtles, which is an action movie and requires a lot of running and jumping and stunts,” Megan told Ellen DeGeneres during her interview.

“So I spent the entire — anyone that’s been pregnant knows your first trimester can be pretty rough and you’re nauseous all day long — half of the whole boxes are short shots, basically, was just producers would come see me in the morning in the makeup trailer and I would be clinging to a box of saltines.”

Megan gave birth to her second son, Bodhi, at the end of February, and less than two months later looked fit and fabulous while filming more scenes for TNMT.
