Former Lost star Evangeline Lilly left no doubt about whether or not she’s pregnant, showing up at the L.A. premiere of Ant-Man with an obvious baby bump, Huffington Post is reporting.
The 35-year-old Lilly appeared gorgeous in a black and white Halston Heritage gown that “accentuated” her baby bump, says writer Stephanie Marcus.
Later on, Evangeline spoke to E! Online reporter Rebecca McAtee to confirm that she’s pregnant – seven months pregnant, to be exact.
“This is my second time around, and I find I’ve been pretty lucky. It’s pretty straightforward, and I just love it. I feel good, I feel blissful.”
This is Evangeline Lilly’s second pregnancy; she and her partner Norman Kali have a 4-year-old son, Kahekili. In a 2014 interview, Lilly talked about how easy her first pregnancy was and about her desire to have a big family.
“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, but 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.”
“Becoming a mother has really helped me put my feet on the ground and given me a very powerful sense of self and a powerful sense of priority in life. All I have to do is see my son to do that mental check that says, ‘Is this really important? Do you really need to be doing this? Do you really care?’ It helps put everything in perspective when things get stressful or when there’s a demand or pressure on me. At the end of the day, it’s our family, it’s being a mother and a partner and seeing love all around.”
The very pregnant Lilly was in Hollywood this week to promote Disney’s Ant-Man, based on the Marvel comic of the same name.
“Armed with a super-suit with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.”
