Actress Krysten Ritter, aka Netflix’s Jessica Jones, revealed at the Oscars earlier this year that she was pregnant after showing up with a considerable baby bump. Now, Ritter, who just attended a special screening of Jessica Jones season three, seems to ready to give birth any day now.
The 37-year-old was radiant at the screening she attended in Hollywood on Tuesday night. Dressed in a red swing dress, Ritter proudly showed off her advanced pregnancy, which didn’t interfere with her ability to go glam for the evening. Wearing patent red heels and matching lipstick, the actress, who also starred as Jane Margolis on the AMC drama series Breaking Bad, and as Chloe on the ABC comedy series Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23, was all smiles at the event.
Although her critically-acclaimed series will end after season three, Ritter is expected to continue portraying Jessica Jones on The Defenders alongside Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock / Daredevil, Mike Colter as Luke Cage and Finn Jones as Danny Rand / Iron Fist. Although Netflix seems to have abandoned the series, Hulu's senior vice president of originals Craig Erwich told The Wrap that the streaming service may revive the series, along with Iron Fist, Luke Cage, The Punisher, Jessica Jones, and Daredevil.
Meanwhile, Ritter will need some rest after welcoming her first child with Adam Granduciel, the lead singer of The War On Drugs with whom he has recorded four studio albums, and a former member of Kurt Vile's backing band The Violators. This will be Krysten’s first baby, although the couple has been together for the past five years.
Regarding her role as Jessica Jones and her fans, Ritter has said, “It has been a dream to play Jessica alongside my amazing cast and the best crew in the business for these past 5 years. I am so grateful for every second of it. We have the best fans. You guys mean the world to me and I appreciate you beyond words.”
Before becoming an actress, Ritter was a successful model. She was scouted by a modeling agent at her local shopping mall, the Wyoming Valley Mall in Wilkes-Barre Township, Pennsylvania, at the age of 15. At the time, Ritter described herself as "tall, gawky, awkward, and really, really skinny."
Eventually, she signed with Elite Model Management in New York City and then with Wilhelmina Models. At 18, she started an international-modeling career in print ads and on television, doing magazine, catalog, and runway work in Milan, New York, Paris, and Tokyo.
