Margot’s’s going to be a mum!
The pitter patter of tiny feet is afoot!
Her career’s skyrocketing and she’s earning major Oscar buzz for her role as disgraced US figure skater Tonya Harding in the flick I, Tonya, but Margot Robbie is getting ready to take on her most important role yet – motherhood!
Yep, pop open some champers and non-alcoholic cider as NW has learnt that the Aussie actress, 27, is roughly three months pregnant with her first child to hubby Tom Ackerley. Congrats guys! “Margot has wanted to be a mum ever since she and Tom tied the knot,” our insider says of actress, who married her assistant director beau in December 2016 – although recent reports claim they actually wed in secret three years ago!
“She’s always said that when she does get pregnant she’ll keep the news to herself and her closest family members. She’s private and doesn’t feel the need to announce something like this publicly.”
But now, as the month’s fly by, it seems the big secret is out! Indeed, Margot all-but unveiled her bump when she frocked up for the Hollywood Film Awards in LA on November 5.
Onlookers insist that there was “definitely a hint of a baby bump” underneath the star’s floral Louis Vuitton gown as she posed on the red carpet with Tom, 27.
What’s more, during the night, a member of Margot’s entourage was apparently caught blabbing about dressing the bump, and how they had to scurry to find a suitable outfit that would adequately cover it up!
“Someone was overheard saying that Margot requested something billowy to wear that hid her mid-section,” the insider tells NW. “You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out what that means.”
Also adding to the baby buzz is the fact Margot’s laying off the plonk. According to the insider, she hasn’t been attending many social gatherings where there’s drinking involved. Usually the beer-loving babe is the first to arrive and last to leave a party, so her Sober Sally act was a “dead giveaway” to her pals.
But with awards season having only just begun, Margot may be forced to make an announcement sooner rather than later. Many pundits are already predicting that she’ll nab a Best Actress nomination at the Golden Globes and Academy Awards, meaning she’ll be expected to attend both awards shows.
“She has high hopes of taking home an Oscar for I, Tonya,” says the insider. “Everyone’s joking that if she does – and she has a boy – then she’ll be taking home two little men!” And that’s just for starters. Last year Margot revealed she and Tom are planning a big family. “I want tons of children,” she told Sundaystyle. “I grew up in a family of four [kids], so that soun sounds like a good number.” n
