Gal Gadot is pregnant with her third child

Didn’t have another Gal Gadot pregnancy on your 2021 bingo card? Well, just imagine it.

Hours after taking the stage at the Golden Globes, the “Wonder Woman” star, 35, announced on Instagram that she’s expecting her third child. She posted a picture of herself cuddling in bed with daughters Alma, 9, and Maya, 3, while her husband Jaron Varsano cradled her baby bump.

“Here we go again,” Gadot captioned the post.

As Hollywood pregnancy announcements go, this was a tame one. In the pandemic era, it’s become de rigueur for celebs to debut a baby bump against a backdrop of palm fronds or a manicured Los Angeles lawn. (To wit: Lea Michele’s garden photoshoot and Karlie Kloss’s poolside pose.)

But after becoming the face of celebrity obliviousness at the outset of the pandemic, Gadot seemed to be cultivating a lower profile. Instead of not-so-subtly showing off her estate, she posed with fairly proletarian household items (a bed) and only a few luxury goods (a silk nightgown, a silver-fox real estate mogul husband).

Mazel tov, Gal! If you need help with names, you know where to find us.
