Kristen Bell Announced Her Pregnancy Today And She’s Already On Bump Watch

By  | 

Poor Kristen Bell is the victim of circumstance.  Days of Hurricane Sandy coverage (after the devastation we’ve seen I refuse to downgrade it to a superstorm) combined with election day looming means most celebrities are busy with appearances to support one cause or the other.  That leaves pregnant Kristen Bell wide open in the sights of the paparazzi.  And thus officially begins her bump watch.

After just confirming the pregnancy today, is already displaying photos of her teeny tiny baby belly. Clad in a flowy top and what appears to be her regular everyday jeans, Bell is no doubt being peppered with questions of “when are you due?” and “how are you feeling?” while just trying to enjoy some solo shopping.

“They’re so excited — they’re both ecstatic. They can’t wait to become parents,” a friend close to the couple reveals, adding, “Kristen had a little bit of morning sickness early on but she just started shooting the second season of ‘House of Lies’ and is feeling great now.”

Even though it is a long road to delivering in “late spring” 2013, Bell may need the extra time to shed herself of her “guilty pleasure” as she admitted to the Huffington Post.

Sleep. I could go to bed for 16 hours straight if no one would wake me up. I love setting my alarm really early, hearing it, and then letting it go off every half hour until the next day. The euphoria I feel when I know I get to go back to bed is my favorite feeling in the world.

With a newborn in her not-too-distant future, she needs to set her sights on banking all the sleep she can get with the speed the tabloids have set on her expanding midriff.
