Amanda Peet and David Benioff Are Expecting Baby No. 3 — It’s a Boy! (UPDATE)
Updated Story (October 10, 2014): Amanda Peet and husband David Benioff are finally having a boy! The 42-year-old — who already has two daughters Molly June and Frances Pen — revealed her baby’s gender today at the UN Foundation and Walgreen’s Get a Shot campaign in Los Angeles.
“I’m very excited,” the expectant actress reveals to People, adding that her girls are also looking forward to meeting their soon-to-be little brother. “[They] are very excited now,” Amanda adds. “We’ll see what happens when he actually arrives!”
Congratulations to the growing family!
Original Story (August 25, 2014): And the Emmy goes to… Amanda Peet and hubby David Benioff! The couple, who married in 2006, is expecting their third child, which Amanda announced this afternoon not with a press release or a tweet, but the good old fashioned way — by showing up on the Emmys 2014 red carpet with a baby bump!
Amanda and her Game of Thrones co-creator husband, David, already have two daughters together: Molly June, 4, and Frances Pen, 7. The Saving Silverman actress is attending the Emmys in support of her hubby, whose show is nominated for awards in five major categories, including Outstanding Drama Series.
The hot mama has been lying low since her debut as a playwright with the stage play The Commons of Pensacola, which starred Blythe Danner and Sarah Jessica Parker as a mother-daughter duo in turmoil. She’s been a bit M-I-A since the stage run ended back in February, and now we know why!
With the low-key way in which we found out about the great news, we have to wonder: if the couple didn’t have to be out and about in Hollywood tonight, how much longer would they have kept their bundle of joy under wraps? Judging by Amanda’s tummy, not much longer — she’s already showing, so we’re guessing she’s at least four months along. Ooooh! Maybe they’re having a New Years baby!
Whenever the little tyke is due, we’re so happy for the darling couple and big sisters-to-be.
Send your congrats to the adorable family in the comments!
