You might not have remembered, since she’s been keeping pretty quiet about it, but Julia Stiles is pregnant. While taking a bump photo, she just couldn’t help it and had to share it with her fans. And we’re so glad she did.

Stiles is pregnant with her first child with fiancé Preston J. Cook. The news was confirmed this past June, and while we’re not sure how far along she is (her publicist just stated she was due at the end of the year) she’s definitely showing.

Stiles and Cook have been engaged since 2015. The actress and cameraman first met on the set of the movie Go With Me, which was later retitled as Blackway.

In the photo, Stiles is posing in her bedroom, totally glowing.

Back in August of last year, Stiles mentioned that she’s been pretty slow with wedding planning. And we’re sure this new arrival has stalled the process a bit more. But hey — sometimes the best weddings don’t happen all that quickly.

While Stiles had a noticeable bump that photographers caught right after an interview she did with Magic FM’s Nick Snaith in London, this is the first picture she’s decided to publicly share. And it’s definitely a good one.

We’re just hoping that Stiles makes sure her new baby is well aware of her many notable roles. We can just imagine the baby’s first screenings of hits like 10 Things I Hate About You and her episodes of Dexter (that is, when the baby is much older.)

We hope Julia Stiles has an incredible pregnancy. We can’t wait to hear about the new arrival when he or she gets here!
