Surprise — Krysten Ritter is pregnant!
The Jessica Jones star is expecting her first child, she shared on the Oscars 2019 red carpet Sunday evening by showing off her baby bump under a long-sleeved fitted lace gown featuring red floral appliques.
“OSCARS!!!!” the actress captioned two selfies of the pair on her Instagram account from inside the event.
The news comes days after Netflix announced the double cancellation of both Jessica Jones and The Punisher, on the heels of its axing of Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Daredevil.
“We have decided that the upcoming third season will also be the final season for Marvel’s Jessica Jones,” Netflix said in a statement. “We are grateful to showrunner Melissa Rosenberg, star Krysten Ritter, and the entire cast and crew, for three incredible seasons of this groundbreaking series, which was recognized by the Peabody Awards among many others. We are grateful to Marvel for five years of our fruitful partnership and thank the passionate fans who have followed these series from the beginning.”
The decision on Netflix’s part is not surprising: Disney’s own streaming service, Disney+, is up for launch this year and will feature new Marvel shows. Marvel TV also recently announced a new partnership with Hulu that will include four standalone animated series culminating in a crossover.
Ritter is generally private when it comes to her relationship, but she does share photos of the two to social media and took to Instagram earlier this month to wish her beloved a happy birthday.
The 91st Academy Awards are broadcasting live from Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 24, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on ABC.
