Yesterday PopSugar turned up photos of Isla Fisher, wife of Sasha Baron Cohen, sporting a baby bump the size of a ripe baby watermelon. No doubt about it: Isla Fisher is pregnant with Baby Cohen #2 (big sis Olive is 2 1/2). From the looks of it, Fisher is more than a couple of months along. So how’d she keep it a secret until now? Bear in mind that we here at Famecrawler have run plenty of pics of her in recent months, with no idea that she was knocked up. Are we clueless? Or is she significantly more conniving than your average pregnant celeb?
Another photo (plus our analysis and confirmation of the pregnancy) after the bump—I mean jump.
In the top photo, she’s truly a victim of an unfortunate wind. Until that moment, she’d mastered carrying off the high-waisted dress, billowy peasant shirt, and other ingenious wardrobe tricks practiced by secretly-pregnant women worldwide. She’d also been using daughter Olive as a distraction. Seriously. Have you seen Olive? Adorable—and almost always in Isla’s arms. Because when you’re carrying an adorable babe in your arms, nobody looks at your belly. Trust me. It works.
Need further proof? X17 also caught Fisher’s bump on film (at right, on April 16). Isla’s “hide it with a bag trick” often works—but not this late in the pregnancy game. And if there’s still any doubt, “a source close to Isla Fisher confirms to X17online exclusively the actress is pregnant with her second child with husband Sacha Baron Cohen!” says the site.
(All that said, if this is a Borat-esque stunt for her husband’s next film, color us fooled).
