Elisabeth had been spotted earlier this week filming on the set of the Max Minghella-directed thriller, Shell, displaying what looked like a baby bump adding to growing speculation she was about to become a mother.
The Handmaid’s Tale actress confirmed the happy news and debuted her growing baby bump officially on the sofa with host Jimmy on Tuesday evening who joked: ‘Are you pregnant or just an incredibly committed method actor?’
‘A little bit of both,’ the Mad Men star replied.
The Grey’s Anatomy actress said she feels ‘really lucky’ as her pregnancy journey has been ‘going really well.’
The two-time Golden Globe winning actress, who was previously married to comedian and SNL star Fred Armisen for a year before divorcing in 2011, has kept her personal life private.
The 41-year-old asked Jimmy, who shares four children with his wife Molly McNearney, for pregnancy advice.

The comedian, 56, shared the same advice his wife received from Bill Murray: ‘Bring Christmas lights to hang (in the delivery room), beads, a night light, (and) he said bring music, which everybody tells you.’
Jimmy added battery-powered candles to the list because ‘the lighting is terrible in the room, it’s like Walmart style lighting for this blessed event that is going to happen and you don’t want that.’
In 2022, Elisabeth told Daily Mail that she had wanted children and hoped to emulate the parenting style of her mother Linda.
‘I definitely want to have kids because I’ve been very inspired by the kind of mother my mom is. She did a beautiful thing with me,’ she said.

‘And then I’ll give the child to my mum and she can raise it because she’d do it very well.’
Elisabeth has been very private with her love life and her only known public relationships were with SNL’s Fred and cinematographer Adam Arkapaw.
She was once even linked to Tom Cruise, with rumours swirling the pair were engaged; however, they turned out to be false.
Speaking about the false rumours, she told Andy Cohen in 2020: ‘I actually was confused and mainly got texts from people being like, “I didn’t know, why didn’t you tell me?” and just confusion from my friends, but mainly just poking fun of me because they knew it wasn’t true.
‘And then I saw it on the cover of one of the gossip magazines, and I was like, “I’ve never had that haircut…clearly not me.”‘
