Elisabeth Moss, known for her roles in “Mad Men” and “The Handmaid’s Tale,” confirmed her pregnancy during a recent appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”. Host Jimmy Kimmel, 56, quizzed Moss about her pregnancy, given her character’s pregnancy in “The Handmaid’s Tale,” to which Moss humorously replied, “A little bit of both,” indicating her commitment to her role and her actual pregnancy. She then shared that she has been fortunate in handling her pregnancy so far, saying, “It’s been going really well.”
Seeking advice from Kimmel, who has four children, Elisabeth Moss received a unique suggestion from him based on a tip from comedy legend Bill Murray. Kimmel recalled Murray advising him and his wife, Molly McNearney, to bring Christmas lights and battery-powered candles to the delivery room for better lighting during childbirth. Moss responded positively to this advice, saying, “I think that’s a really good list, I like that.”
Elisabeth Moss Keeping Pregnancy Details Under Wraps
Despite her openness about her pregnancy, Elisabeth Moss did not disclose further details, including her due date. Speculation about her pregnancy arose in December when she was spotted rubbing her belly on the set of her latest project in Los Angeles. The actress, known for maintaining her privacy, expressed her desire to be a mother in previous interviews.
In 2018, Elisabeth Moss told Marie Claire UK, “It’s not for everybody, and I didn’t know if it was going to be for me, but lately, I think it is.” She reiterated this sentiment in 2022, stating to You magazine (via Daily Mail) that she “definitely” wants children of her own someday, citing her mother as an inspiration.
Moss has kept her personal life out of the spotlight, and her current relationship status is unknown. Elisabeth Moss was previously married to comedian and actor Fred Armisen from 2009 to 2010 and later dated Australian cinematographer Adam Arkapaw from 2012 to 2015.
