This is no urban legend:Â Ali Larter is pregnant!
TheÂ Legends star is expecting her second child with husbandÂ Hayes MacArthur,Â she announced during a Friday appearance onÂ The Tonight Show.
â€œ[Three years ago] I came on and I was pregnant and it went so well, and I said to my husband, â€˜Iâ€™m going on Fallon, you know what that means â€” gotta get pregnant!â€™ â€ she said.
HostÂ Jimmy FallonÂ leaned down to Larterâ€™s baby belly, saying, â€œHey buddy! I canâ€™t wait to meet you! Weâ€™re going to be friends.â€
â€œItâ€™s so exciting. Itâ€™s such a scary time and Iâ€™ve been trying to hide it as much as you can, and when youâ€™re in the public eye itâ€™s really scary in the beginning,â€ she explained.
â€œI was still shooting my spy drama â€¦ I had to be a covert spy in my real life, too, so Iâ€™m wearing blazers and push-up bras and everything you can do to distract.â€
Larter, 38, wedÂ the writer at his family estate in Kennebunkport, Maine, in 2009, and the couple welcomed their first child, sonÂ Theodore Hayes, now 3Â½, in 2010.
â€œWeâ€™ve told him about him, and I actually will say, â€˜Teddy, wait, itâ€™s talking to you,â€™ and heâ€™ll be, â€˜What Mom, whatâ€™s going on?â€™ And I go, â€˜It says that it loves Batman and was wondering if it canÂ watch it with you?â€™ He goes, â€˜Oh my God, Mom! Batman, I canâ€™t even watch it, can I watch it with the baby?â€™ â€œ
After giving birth to her baby boy, LarterÂ toldÂ Health magazine it took â€œworking out a lotâ€ â€” and five months â€” to lose the pregnancy pounds.
â€œItâ€™s hard to impress me with a body that hasnâ€™t had a baby. Have a baby and then letâ€™s talk,â€ the actress and cookbook author joked.
