Isla Fisher was spotted in London sporting a sizable baby bump this week–meaning she and hubby Sacha Baron Cohen are expecting their third baby. The two have been married since 2010 and are the parents of two daughters thus far. Olive is six and Eula is four. Might the third time be that proverbial charm if the couple is hoping for a baby boy?
Us Weekly reports that Isla Fisher has pulled out of her upcoming film role in Now You See Me 2 because of her pregnancy.
“Production starts in November and she knew she wouldn’t be able to do it,” the source told the publication, adding, “She’s about three months along.”
Despite their careers, Sacha Baron Cohen and The Great Gatsby star are said to be quite private about their personal lives. Isla Fisher did share her feelings about her family during an interview from just over a year ago.

“Family is 100 percent my top priority. So I’m much more comfortable doing supporting roles right now. And often,” she told The Telegraph in July 2013. “They’re the most interesting,” the star reasoned. “You get to be a character actress.”
She talked about her two previous pregnancies during an interview with Fitness magazine in 2013, too.
“I gained 65 pounds with my first baby and 70 with my second,” she shared. “I had severe morning sickness both times, so I mostly ate supersize bowls of white pasta with loads of butter and cheese because that was the only thing that took away the nausea.”
Even though Isla Fisher lost a great deal of her pregnancy weight by doing yoga, she realizes her stomach will never be completely flat–and that doesn’t seem to bother her in the least.
“Even though it will never be flat again, it’s still my favorite because it reminds me of my greatest achievement: my babies,” she said.
What an amazing attitude Fisher has. Too bad moms everywhere couldn’t adopt her philosophy–and concentrate more on the gift their bodies gave them instead of how badly they want their bodies to resemble those on magazine covers.
Congratulations to Borat star Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher on the soon-to-be new member of their family.
