Anne Hathaway is all set to welcome her second child with her husband, Adam Shulman. After announcing her pregnancy in late July, the actress enjoyed a fun-filled baby shower with close friends and family on October 12.
The 36-year-old Oscar-winning actress had a comparatively low-key baby-shower, which was, in fact, a surprise for her too. An insider said, when Anne entered her Upper West Side home, she was greeted by her loved ones, who yelled, “Surprise.” She was completely taken aback and “put her hand over her mouth then her face.” She was overjoyed with this sweet gesture and “She hugged one of her friends and said 'You guys are so good!’”
The insider further added, "Guests gathered on her outdoor terrace where a table was set up with a tray of baked goods, and food was served in elegant silver." The Devil Wears Prada actress was also seen rubbing her baby bump and happily chattering with her guests, including Jessica Chastain.
With barely any makeup, in her off-shoulder navy blue dress, and a gold butterfly necklace, Anne looked stunning.
This is not the first time – she looked equally fabulous in her peach floral dress, in an Instagram photo that she captioned as "This is the fanciest dress I have ever twirled in…”
Earlier this year, while announcing her pregnancy, she offered support to all those going through infertility issues. She captioned her Instagram photo, “It’s not for a movie...#2All kidding aside, for everyone going through infertility and conception hell, please know it was not a straight line to either of my pregnancies. Sending you extra love. 💕”
After the birth of her first baby, Jonathan Rosebanks Shulman, The Hustle actress had spoken about her post-pregnancy syndrome in a TCA Summer Press Tour. She explained how she could focus on certain aspects but not on concepts like directions, etc. The "mommy brain” syndrome is common in many women, where new moms tend to forget things and act scatter-brained. Some relate it to fatigue and hormonal changes, whereas others feel it’s the intoxicating effect of overpowering love for the new baby.
In Anne’s case, her brain refused to allow her to pay attention to directions. She added, “I can focus on certain things that are fine, but there are certain things my brain just.…it refuses to allow me to imagine directions, so if you describe something, shapes or you spell something, I can't go there. And certain words, I have a hard time recalling, so I become that spinny wheel of death on your computer in conversation with me. And I feel I'm very taxing for people to be around."
The gender of her second child is yet to be revealed. And as we eagerly await to see the diva as a second-time mother, we wish her happy motherhood.
