Here’s one perk of being pregnant at the same time as your TV character: You don’t have to wear that awkward fake pregnancy belly. One of the downsides? Well… having to be at work when you’re pregnant and feeling exhausted!

Photographers spotted Emily Deschanel (Brennan) back on the Bones set in Pasadena, CA on August 22, filming scenes for the upcoming Season 7. Now, we all know that Temperance Brennan is currently knocked up and carrying her own adorable little baby Booth in the oven — and Emily revealed her real-life pregnancy back in March.

But Em’s been keeping things pretty low-key throughout her pregnancy. She’s only been spotted out in public twice so far, and Zooey Deschanel recently told E! Online that her sis is “exhausted.”

Bones will have a shorter 13 episodes this season, but that’s still got to be tough for Emily. At least she gets to work with some cool guest stars while she’s at it — that’s soap star Morgan Fairchild standing next to her!

Oh, who are we kidding: We’re just ready for Emily (and Brennan) to give birth already. We can’t wait to see what little Booth Jr. looks like!
