Actress Jenna Fischer is currently pregnant with her and husband Lee Kirk’s second child and she also just turned 40 yesterday. In honor of both events, The Office alum took to Twitter on Friday and shared an epic baby bump photo of herself wearing a bikini top and posing majestically in front of a beach. “Thanks for all the sweet birthday messages,” she tweeted along with the photo. “I think I found a good place to celebrate!”
Prior to sharing the “From Here To Maternity” motivational poster above, Jenna joked about missing out on the Oscars last weekend. “I was going to go to the Oscars but I’m going to Target to buy bath towels instead,” she tweeted. “Pretty much the same thing. I have an updo.”
When a follower asked her “Who are you wearing?” Jenna replied with, “I’m wearing Gap Maternity in Grey.”
Unlike the Oscars, Jenna actually did make an appearance on the red carpet at the 5th Annual QVC Red Carpet Style event held at the Four Season Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Friday, February 28. Her baby bump made a triumphant debut in a sparkly blue dress:
At the QVC event Jenna spoke with People about her current pregnancy. “Everyone’s telling me one plus one does not equal two. One plus one feels like four,” she said. “My sister just had her second child so I’ve been calling her for a lot of advice [on] how to juggle the needs of two children.”
It was just announced Fischer was pregnant again late last month, but clearly she had been keeping it a secret for some time. “I’m almost in my third trimester, so we’re in the homestretch already,” Jenna told People. “I know the news just came out, but it’s old news to us!”
Jenna and Lee reportedly know the sex of their baby, but are keeping it a secret. The little bundle of joy will be joining big brother Weston Lee, who was born September 24, 2011.
Congratulations to Jenna and Lee — both for the new pregnancy and for creating what is sure to be the badassest baby bump photo of the year!
