Rumors that Fargo star Kirsten Dunst is pregnant have been swirling since December, but now we have official (and very stylish) confirmation that the actor is expecting her first child with costar and fiancé Jesse Plemons.
Dunst hasn’t issued a statement, but as the old saying goes, a Rodarte photo shoot is worth a thousand words (that’s how it goes, right?). The actor debuted her baby bump in a series of photos for the fashion house’s fall/winter look book titled Women Who Inspire Us. Dressed in a floral tulle embroidered gown and a pink floral hairpiece (obv), Dunst cradles her baby bump in the image. This isn’t Dunst’s first time collaborating with Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the sisters who founded Rodarte in 2005. Last year, she starred in the Mulleavy’s first film, the thriller Woodshock.

It may only be January, but 2018 is shaping up to be a very exciting year for Dunst. She and Plemons plan to tie the knot in April at a small ceremony in Texas. According to Glamour, Dunst’s wedding gown will be designed by the Mulleavy sisters. (We’re seeing a theme here.) And then there’s impending parenthood to add extra excitement. When asked about the pregnancy, Dunst’s rep declined to give a yes or no answer, telling the Los Angeles Times, “[T]he photos speak for themselves.” (So we can take that as a yes, yes?)
Dunst has previously expressed her eagerness at the prospect of motherhood. “I wasn’t one of those ‘I need a baby!’ people until my goddaughter was born,” she told Marie Claire U.K. last summer. “I love her so much. That love is just like… you can’t experience that unless you have a kid. I put her to bed last night and she woke up this morning and said to her mom, ‘Where’s Kiki?’; I just love that love. That’s what I want.”
