Fans of Evangeline Lilly got a great surprise when the former Lost star turned up at the premiere of her new movie Ant-Man complete with a brand new baby bump.
Evangeline, 35, is pregnant with her second child, her first being four-year-old Kahekili, who was born in May 2011 to Lilly and her long-term boyfriend, Norman Kali. Wearing a one-shouldered monochrome dress, which emphasized the bump, Lilly looked stunning as she arrived at the premiere of Ant-Man on Monday evening.
As reported on Her, the premiere was held at the Dolby Theater and marks the first time Evangeline Lilly has headed down the red carpet since the Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies premiere which was held in December 2014.

In the movie Ant-Man, Evangelina plays martial arts expert Hope Van Dyne. She could have used some of those moves while starring in the popular Lost series a while back!

According to TV3, so far it is unknown when Lilly is due to give birth and it is also unknown whether she knows the gender of her new baby, but she did previously admit to enjoying being pregnant with her first child, Kahekili.
“What I wanted originally was six kids. I frickin’ love being pregnant. I’m one of the lucky women who just had a blissful pregnancy.”
While Evangeline Lilly enjoys being pregnant, she says she would love to adopt several children too but found the process is pretty tough.
“I wanted to adopt four.
”My partner and I have really been through the ringer in the adoption world and it’s hard, so we’ll see what happens. Life is magically beautiful, and it brings you what is perfect.”
Naturally, Lilly was joined by her co-stars on the red carpet, including Michael Douglas, Paul Rudd, and Corey Stoll.
