Alexandra Daddario is expecting her first child

As she threw up out of a car in the middle of Brooklyn’s Atlantic Avenue, Alexandra Daddario wondered if she should just get her pregnancy announcement over with. She’d kept the whole thing quiet for six months—wearing baggy clothing, posting tightly cropped photos on her Instagram, and avoiding pretty much everyone. But, as horns blared and people shouted at her to get out of the road, she realized the logical conclusion of not telling people you’re pregnant is…no one knows you are pregnant. Instead: “They just thought I was drunk,” Daddario says.

The incident didn’t make it to Deuxmoi or anything. (”Another reason I’m glad I’m not more famous,” she adds.) But the actor took it as a sign that it might be time to make the news public. There’s only so much an oversized shirt can do anyway, and one day, someone, somewhere, with an iPhone was going to figure it out. “I want to be able to not have to hide and have someone print a photo of me eating a bagel at the bodega,” she says.

So instead she’s telling me and my recorder in her Dumbo loft, where she lives with her husband, film producer Andrew Form. Daddario’s just finished taking photographs in Khaite and Phoebe Philo—her first real experiment with maternity style. Until recently, she’s been shooting the second season of AMC’s Mayfair Witches in New Orleans, wearing “whatever my character was wearing.”

Daddario wears a Dôen cardigan and Éterne shorts. Photographed by Heather Sten; Styled by Emma Morrison Her castmates on the show quickly figured out she was expecting as she had extreme morning sickness. “I was on set, and I was throwing up and having make-out scenes with my costars right after,” Daddario tells me. “By week five, I was like, There’s no way I’m going to be able to hide this.”

Admittedly, she wasn’t doing the best job of hiding it anyway. When someone asked if she wanted a turkey sandwich, Daddario told the crew she couldn’t have deli meats. Her costar Ben Feldman asked if she was pregnant. When she attempted to be nonchalant about it, he responded: “Well, why are you announcing no deli meat?”

A fair point. So Daddario fessed up. Plus: “I was like, If I tell my job that I’m pregnant, I’m going to get a lot of time off to go throw up in peace,” she says. Did it work? “No,” she responds, laughing. “[However] I have wonderful costars who have kids, and everyone was very understanding about making out with a nauseous, vomiting girl.”

Daddario wears a Phoebe Philo shirt, Hanro underwear, Brother Vellies socks, and a Tag Heuer watch. Photographed by Heather Sten; Styled by Emma Morrison But no one understood more than the anonymous users of Reddit. At first, she logged on to lurk on mom message boards, scrolling posts that discussed severe nausea. Now, she reads it for just about everything: “I’m like, Should I be doing Solidcore at 14 weeks? Better check with Reddit on this.” She also became an obsessive reader of studies: After finding several that said prenatal yoga leads to an easier birth, she’s now an active practitioner.

She laughs through many stories she tells me, with most taking the form of humorous anecdotes. Until they don’t: “I feel like now that I’m pregnant and it’s all successful and everything’s healthy, I shouldn’t complain,” Daddario says, her smile wavering. She wants me to know she’s overjoyed with being pregnant. Which is something she didn’t allow herself to feel for a very long time: “Well, I had been pregnant,” she says before trailing off. Then, “I had loss.”

“It’s long and complicated, so I don’t want to be too specific,” she says softly. “Those kinds of losses and trauma are very hard to explain unless you’ve been through them. I really relate to all the women who have been through those kinds of things in a way that I didn’t understand fully before. It’s very, very painful.” Morning sickness and yoga, I realize, were likely far from the only topics she was searching about anonymously.

Risky pregnancy, but she's pretty I guess.

She’s absolutely beautiful.

I wonder why she’s not more famous.

Her brother is quite stunning as well.

😍

R2 -. Her brother and sister are striking beauties too.

by Anonymousreply 3July 10, 2024 9:54 PM

I seem to be the only person not bowled over by her "beauty." I think she's just average looking, with the exception of her freaky eyes.

Her brother, on the other hand...😘

No, she’s a beauty. She should tone down the makeup.

I just looked up her brother after reading this post - DAMN

I’ve never heard of this bitch and do not want to start now. Fuck off.

She is an idiot. Her husband scored FIVE MILLION DOLLARS from the last chick he knocked up (Jordana Brewster). What does she think is going to happen if SHE gets dumped.?

Sorry, this bitch is hideous.

She’s 38 and had a miscarriage.

by Anonymousreply 11July 11, 2024 6:12 PM

R11 = A miscarriage? So? She is old enough to know about Old Sperm. She needs to call Jordana Brewster and find out how breakup$$ with the husband turn out. Cha-Ching!!

Incredibly beautiful. Those eyes are amazing and her tits are top notch. Love those tits.

I’ve always been freaked out by that anorexic person. She really needs to eat a sandwich.

by Anonymousreply 14July 12, 2024 1:21 AM

She got a bit thin at one point, but no longer.

She is beautiful IMO and her brother, Matthew, is one of my few celebrity crushes. I desperately want him to fuck the shit out of me.

Daddarios are all about the pretty eyes vs dark hair. They have that light-eyed Italian thing that Gavin Casalegno also benefits from. So very lovely.

If you watched the first season of [italic]True Detective[/italic], she played Marty's gorgeous and crazy court reporter girlfriend.

She plays unhinged well.

She was beyond woeful in The Mayfair Witches, the dunking on her in the Anne Rice subreddit was legendary. She cannot carry a show for shit.

by Anonymousreply 20July 13, 2024 4:25 AM

Her tits are going to sag post pregnancy. I suspect she'll have an autistic baby, what with the old sperm. But, good luck to her.

Who, now?

R20 What was bad about her performance?

by Anonymousreply 25July 13, 2024 5:45 PM

I think they’re going to continue the series beyond the one year.

She must not have done all that bad.

by Anonymousreply 26July 13, 2024 6:54 PM

I liked the first season.

She was terrific in White Lotus.

by Anonymousreply 28July 14, 2024 1:30 AM

She was R28. The look on her face, like she had died inside, when her character accepted what her fate would be was so good.

by Anonymousreply 29July 14, 2024 2:21 AM

White Lotus season 1 was so good.
