Rachel Bloom Compares Her 'Humble' Pregnancy Announcement To Beyonce's And Reveals The Gender!
Rachel Bloom is pregnant for the first time and she had a great opportunity to make the announcement – at the 2019 Creative Arts Emmys! After all, the actress won the prize for Best Original Music and Lyrics for her role in Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and had the spotlight all to herself for a while.
After getting the honor, the star headed backstage, where she revealed that she and husband Dan Gregor are expecting their first child, while chatting with ET.
But that was not all! The actress did not hesitate to do a quick gender reveal either, confirming that they are going to have a baby girl.
‘Yeah, you know, everyone is asking me what you are gonna do now and it is like, 'All right, it feels like the right time to say it.' I just wanted to share my happy news with the world! Like, [my Emmy] makes me so happy and [the pregnancy also] makes me happy.’
Bloom confessed, however, that the parents to be did not really plan to share the news like that.
‘It was like 50/50. I am at the 3-month mark, so I was like, 'Time to share stuff,' but also I might as well do it as a press announcement. ...It is very cool to be able to tell my daughter someday that she was on stage with me as I was doing that opening number,' the actress explained to the news outlet.
She went on to joke that her pregnancy announcement was definitely ‘humble’ compared to Beyonce's 2011 own reveal at the MTV Video Music Awards.
Bloom definitely had the opportunity to do something similar but she chose not to, as it seems.
During day 2 of the event, Bloom also said that ‘I was planning to [announce] it today, because my breasts have grown about 3 sizes. I think it is very obvious. I also wore a dress clearly trying to hide it.’
