Maggie Gyllenhaal and husband, Peter Sarsgaard, are having a girl, reports People. “I find it difficult to pretend you’re not pregnant, which I had to do,” says the 34-year-old star, referencing the months that she concealed the pregnancy before announcing it in November. “I went to film festivals. I’m throwing up in the bathroom and having to keep pretzels in my purse, and having to fit into dresses.”

The couple were married in 2009, and are also parents to five-year-old Ramona.
