We all know and love the story of the three Sanderson sisters who rose from the dead because a virgin lit the black flame candle. And well, apparently so does actress Vinessa Shaw, who played Allison in the infamous film, Hocus Pocus.
Twenty-four years after the movie’s original release, Shaw payed tribute to the Halloween classic as she announced a very special milestone in her life … she’s pregnant!
Shaw, 41, took to Instagram on Saturday to let her fans and friends know that she and husband Kristopher Gifford will be expecting their first child together in a subtly clever photo of the two of them. The couple is seen standing together in front of a backdrop, that we’re used to seeing covered in sponsor logos, but instead reads, “Great News! I am pregnant.”
But the couple’s wit didn’t end there. Today, Vinessa decided to share a second photo that just seemed too fitting to pass up:
And the post, which has 935 likes and counting (it’s only been up for 21 hours), is giving us all the feels. While Mary Sanderson’s line “I smell children” might have given you the chills when watching Hocus Pocus as a kid, we can’t help but give a nostalgic smile as those same words now indicate that Vinessa is having a baby.
Anyone else think she was just immortalized as a teen in the best ballgown Halloween costume ever? No, just me?
Well, I guess it’s time to accept we’re all growing up if Allison is having a baby!
In fact, I may need one of Mary’s suggested “calming circles” to process this news.
