I both find it mildly frustrating and admire it when celebrities are able to keep major life events under cover, especially when it’s a celebrity I like. That’s definitely the case with Julia Stiles, 36, who married Preston J. Cook, a camera assistant she met on the set of 2015′s Blackway, and with whom she’s expecting her first child. The two got married over Labor Day weekend in Seattle, meaning that it took them over three weeks to make the announcement. (Many of you will be like “why did you explain that,” but I’m not great with dates and had to look it up.) Julia is due with her first baby next month and as you can see she poked fun of herself in the announcement, posting a close up photo of her bump with the caption “Who doesn’t love a shotgun wedding?

Who doesn’t love a shotgun wedding? 😉✨

I really like the detailing on that gown and now I want to see the whole thing. Did it have a scoop neck? That’s what I’m picturing. I see that the sleeves go to the elbows, that’s pretty and I like that better than a cap sleeve with this scalloped lace pattern. Her wedding dress looks lovely.

Now I’m checking out Julia’s Instagram and look at this cute side photo she posted earlier this summer (after she made the announcement she was pregnant). I do a similar face on the rare occasions when I post selfies, I’m kind of self conscious about it but I can’t resist.

Alright, I couldn’t resist.

As for her career, Julia starred in a five episode British TV thriller/soap called Riviera this summer, which aired on Sky Atlantic and was well reviewed. It also starred Ivan Rheon (Ramsay on GoT) and now I want to see how I can watch it. She’s an underrated actress.

Getting back to this announcement, congratulations to Julia and Preston! How long do you think it will take them to share the news of their baby’s birth and name? I’m thinking a month and they’ll release the name but will do one of those photos of just the baby’s hands and feet, not the face.

Look at how cute they are together! These photos are from the BAFTAs in mid February so if she’s eight months along now she was probably about a month pregnant here.

That time I went camping, nearly eight months pregnant, just to see @nathanielrateliff and the @nightsweatsnc

I had one of those full body pillows when I was pregnant too. It was so hard to get comfortable to sleep. I bet her baby was moving around a lot when the music was loud.
