Isla Fisher is pregnant!

According to Us Weekly, who was first to report the pregnancy, Isla and her husband Sacha Baron Cohen are expecting their third child together. The couple already has two children, daughter Olive, six, and daughter Elula, four.

The Great Gatsby star was seen running errands in London wearing a loose-fitted blue top to cover her growing baby bump along with baggy jeans and a white blazer.

According to a source close to the actress, she recently pulled out of the film Now You See Me 2 to concentrate fully on her pregnancy. "Production starts in November and she knew she wouldn't be able to do it," the source said. "She's about three months along."

Isla also took a step back from acting when her other children were born. "I took three years off," she said. "It's not like you're taking a break and looking on IMDbPro to see your StarMeter falling. You're doing the most important, incredible thing. When you come back in, the perspective has changed. I truly believe you can't have it all and you shouldn't want to."

Fisher admits that she has had a hard time finding the right balance between work and motherhood, but said that being a mom is the most important job to her. "I'm just dipping my toe back into work now. It's a juggling act and I'm not particularly good at it; the balls are in the air," she said during a 2013 interview. "But my priority is always my family. Motherhood boils everything down to the essentials."
