“It’s so great. I feel wonderful”
We blame Lost. When Evangeline Lilly starred on the cult hit, she became very good at keeping a secret. And the actress showed that she’s lost none of those skills when she surprised everyone on Monday by revealing that she’s pregnant. The actress showed off her baby bump for the first time on the red carpet for the premiere of her new movie, Ant-Man, in Los Angeles.
“It’s so great. I feel wonderful,” Lilly told PEOPLE. “I have to say, high heels and doing a red carpet is starting to ache.”
Wearing a one-shoulder gown, the 35-year-old held her hand over her tummy and gave away a secret that she’s been keeping for a while — she’s expecting her second child with partner Norman Kali, a production assistant she met on the set of Lost.
The couple are already parents to a 4-year-old son named Kahekili and although it’s her second pregnancy, the experience is completely new.
“My first one, I was 30, now I’m 35. I’m much more tired this time,” she admits. “The last time I was off work, I had no children, I had a partner who was busy working 18 hours a day, so I had all day to meditate and love on my baby and just be pregnant.”
