She wrote: “Baby on the way! So so happy…xx.”
The star of The Hunted seemed to be covering the first hint of a baby bump, as she attended a screening of Ain’t Them Bodies Saints alongside Jean-David at New York’s Museum of Modern Art last week. Melissa, who appeared in In Treatment and Grey’s Anatomy, is probably best known for David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive and The Amityville Horror.
According to rumor, Melissa and Jean-David met at a BAFTA after-party in 2012, where they were later spotted kissing passionately. Just over a year later and they are to become first time parents! She told Australia’s Telegraph newspaper in November last year that she was a natural for babies.
“I would love my own kids. That stuff is obvious,” she said. “I am going to be a mother, absolutely obvious no matter how, when, what. I really am picking the right father for my child. It’s very simple.”
Perth-born Melissa has been famous to UK audiences ever since she starred in the popular soap Home and Away from 1993 to 1996. She was previously married to film director Claudio Dabed, but they split in 2011 after 13 years together. She then went on to date music mogul Russell Simmons, before meeting Jean-David last year.
