Leelee Sobieski has another little one on the way, and the actress announced it to the world by showing off her growing baby bump at a fashion show in New York City.
The 30-year-old Branded star never officially announced her pregnancy, but showed up to the Christian Dior Cruise 2015 fashion show at the Brooklyn Navy Yard this week cradling her baby bump. In case the belly wasn’t proof enough, Leelee wore a beaded bracelet that spelled out “Mommy.”
A representative for the actress later confirmed the pregnancy.
This will be the second child for Leelee Sobieski, who has a daughter named Louisiana Ray with her fashion designer husband Adam Kimmel.
Leelee’s pregnancy “announcement” earned her quite a bit of attention on Thursday, with her story being picked up by celebrity news outlets and her appearance called “the most fashionable baby bump reveal ever.”

Leelee said she loves being a mother and getting to see her daughter grow, saying the experience has given her an entirely new perspective on life.
“I’m really seeing her curiosity come out now — she just looks so smart,” the actress told People magazine in 2010. “If she laughs, I laugh. If I heard myself talking a year ago, I’d be like, ‘So boring!’ But that’s what happens. My baby is really fascinating to me.”
Leelee has been a relatively quiet Hollywood star, avoiding the spotlight and preferring to stay away from the fast-paced lifestyle many Hollywood stars follow. She even revealed in a television interview that she waited until marriage to lose her virginity.
“It wasn’t for any religious reasons or anything like that, but simply because, to me, my virginity was the most precious gift that I could ever give to a man, and I wanted to be sure I was giving it to the right man,” Sobieski said.
Leelee Sobieski did not announce a due date for baby No. 2, but judging by the bump it won’t be too far away.
