Julia Stiles announced her pregnancy back in June, but this is the first time the actress has taken to social media to show off her growing baby bump. Because as she put it, she just “couldn’t resist.”
And fans are certainly glad she’s sharing her journey to becoming a mother!
She and fiancé, Preston J. Cook, were engaged in 2015, and she announced their engagement via Instagram, as well. So, fans have been able to continue to follow the couple’s love story just by following the actress on social media.
She shared the news of her 2015 engagement on Instagram with the image below and the caption: “Best Christmas Ever!”
Stiles talked to TODAY about how she knew she was meant to marry Cook.
“He’s just a really good man,” she said. “It’s a gut feeling, I guess. But the more we spend time together, the more that’s confirmed. He’s just really caring and attentive, and a solid dude.”
The pair met on the set of the film “Go With Me,” which was released in 2015, where Cook worked as a camera assistant.
With such a loving relationship in her life, it’s no wonder she’s excited to share the news that a baby is on the way. She and Cook must be quite the proud parents-to-be!
Stiles posted the photo of her adorable baby belly with the caption, “Alright, I couldn’t resist.” (Her expression is almost as cute as the bump!)
Fans responded with messages congratulating the actress, writing things such as, “So beautiful! Praying for a safe delivery and a healthy baby.” How sweet!
Despite her star status, Stiles really is pretty low key on social media, although she appears to be in France promoting her British TV series, “Riviera” at the moment. So, we’ll just be here living vicariously through her while scrolling through photos of Parisian sunsets.
Back in February, Stiles shared a photo of herself with Cook just a few feet behind none other than Prince William and Duchess Kate at the 70th EE British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA) at Royal Albert Hall. Not a bad couple to photobomb!
Stiles shared the following caption with her image: “‘Hey England, we are sorry for the revolution. We were young'” … Mel Brooks @bafta”
We hope to see more gorgeous photos of the expectant Stiles. We couldn’t be happier for this glowing mom-to-be!
She certainly has come a long way since her “Save The Last Dance” days. Here she is with costar Sean Patrick Thomas as the 2001 MTV Movie Awards.
She and Thomas won Best Kiss, and they even shared one onstage for their fans after receiving the award!
Congrats to the expectant couple!
