Mar­got’s’s go­ing to be a mum!

The pit­ter pat­ter of tiny feet is afoot!

NW - - Hot Shots -

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
