Ali Larter Announces Pregnancy on Television

Ali Larter is pregnant with her second child! The Legends actress and her husband of four years are expecting baby number two in 2015, and the couple is excited to make their 3-and-a-half year-old son, Theodore, a big brother. The actress announced her pregnancy on television over the weekend while she was on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

“Three years ago I came on and I was pregnant and it went so well, and I said to my husband, “I’m going on Fallon. You know what that means – gotta get pregnant!” she told the host during her segment. Larter married Hayes MacArthur back in 2009 in Maine and their son was born a year later. Now, five years into their marriage, they’re expanding their family for the second time and they are excited about the new addition, and somewhat relieved that they no longer have to try and hide her growing baby bump.

“It’s so exciting. It’s such a scary time and I’ve been trying to hide it as much as you can, and when you’re in the public eye it’s really scary in the beginning. I was still shooting my spy drama…I had to be a covert spy in my real life, too, so I’m wearing blazers and push-up bras and everything you can do to distract,” she says of trying to hide her bump in the early days.

Most expectant mothers don’t make any announcements until their pregnancy reaches the second trimester – following the 12th week when the chance of miscarriage after 12 weeks drops significantly. However, it’s difficult to do that when your bump grows quickly and your morning sickness gets the best of you at the most inopportune times.

Larter and her husband have already told their son that he’s going to be a big brother, and they’re getting him excited about his new role by talking to him about all the exciting things he’s going to get to do with his new sibling.
