Jenny Slate is pregnant with her first child and the actress revealed the news in the best way on Thursday night.
The Venom star shared the happy news on Late Night With Seth Meyers after she was asked how she was handling quarantine with her fiancé Ben Shattuck.
Jenny claimed herself and Ben kicked off lockdown with a ‘romantic night of being together’ before she added: ‘And then, I did what everyone else did. I kind of, like, hunkered down and baked a lot of bread.
‘But I just want to say, I think—I think I might have baked too much bread or eaten too much bread. You tell me, Seth.’
The actress then stood up to showcase a clear baby bump as host Seth laughed in response, ‘Oh yeah, that’s a lot of carbs.’
Jenny continued: ‘It’s different. It’s different. I feel different. How have the exact last nine months been? They’ve been real pregnant for me!’
The Gifted star revealed she was grateful to be feeling such joy during 2020 as she added: ‘First of all, it’s nice to have something that is incredibly positive during a time that’s, like, hard and sad. It’s nice to have, like, a little secret treasure.’
Last year, the Parks And Recreation star announced her engagement to Ben after he popped the question in France.
The actress shared a string of pictures with art curator Ben in France to Instagram, and wrote: ‘He took me to France and made a picnic and made me feel happy and free and then he asked me to marry him and i screamed YES.
‘I love you @benshattuck_art, you are the kindest and brightest and I am so grateful and here we go and keep going.’
Ben also confirmed the news on his own Instagram, writing: ‘In an abandoned castle in southern France, I asked this woman to marry me. ?❤️?Here she is in front of a door the color of her soul. In LA / MA / Holland / Belgium / France thank you @jennyslate and UP UP UP to more adventures.’
This is Jenny’s second engagement – the Big Mouth star previously tied the knot with filmmaker Dean Fleischer-Camp in 2012, but they split in May 2016.
Jenny famously started dating Avengers star Chris Evans that year, after they starred in Gifted together.
The pair dated on and off until they split for good in 2018.
