Isla Fisher, the actress behind Now You See Me, and Bachelorette, is pregnant and expecting her third child with husband Sacha Baron Cohen.
US Weekly confirmed the news of Fisher’s pregnancy, but those following the actress’ whereabouts knew something was up. The Australian actress was out and about and spotted with a “baby bump” on September 23 while running errands.
Although she’s most likely celebrating the impending birth of her child with Sacha Baron Cohen, this has caused a bit of a rift in her upcoming project. Isla was expected to go to set on the sequel for the surprise hit Now You See Me, but has decided to pull out of the sequel to focus on her pregnancy.
An insider told US Weekly of the difficult decision.
“Production starts in November and she knew she wouldn’t be able to do it. She’s about three months along.”
Fisher and Cohen have two children, Olive, 7, and Elula, 4, who are simply adorable.
Back in 2013 she discussed her marriage to Cohen saying that it wasn’t a normal relationship due to Cohen’s controversial films.
“You know there have been times in the past with the guerrilla style film making of Borat and Bruno where there were surreal conversations: “How many people are suing us? Are you wanted in any states? Are you alive?”‘
That said, is seems like Isla and Sacha have everything in order in their home. The actress told The Telegraph that she’s dedicated to her family.
“Family is 100 percent my top priority. So I’m much more comfortable doing supporting roles right now. And often they’re the most interesting. You get to be a character actress. I love the focus on family, food and laughter.”
As for what informs her acting choices, unsurprisingly the actress says that one specific thing trumps everything else. “It’s all about location because of the kids.”
Hopefully this pregnancy will be better than the last two. According to Fisher, her pregnancies take a big hit on her body.
“I gained 65 pounds with my first baby and 70 with my second. I had severe morning sickness both times, so I mostly ate supersize bowls of white pasta with loads of butter and cheese because that was the only thing that took away the nausea.”
To get rid of her baby weight she turned to yoga, and got back into shape that way.
A big congratulations to Isla Fisher and hubby Sacha Baron Cohen.
