Maggie Gyllenhaal is a mom! Again! It’s still kind of hard for me to picture “Donnie Darko” and “Secretary” co-star as a mother. Not because I think she’d make a bad one, mind you, but because, in my head, she will always be Donnie Darko’s older sister. Honestly, I had no idea that Gyllenhaal and her husband Peter Sarsgaard were expecting another child. Apparently they were, as the 34 year-old actress recently gave birth to Gloria Ray, marking baby number two for the pair. Otherwise, it would just be weird.
Maybe I’m not the only person left on the entire planet who didn’t know Gyllenhaal was pregnant. The actress claims waited until the second trimester to announce to the world that she was expecting with another child. Now I feel a little better.
“I find it difficult to pretend you’re not pregnant, which I had to do,” Gyllenhaal told US Weekly. “I didn’t let anyone know until three and a half months this time. I went to film festivals. I’m throwing up in the bathroom and having to keep pretzels in my purse, and having to fit into dresses.”
Folks who spend a lot of time tweeting about people they don’t know had a lot of well-wishes to send towards Gyllenhaal and Sarsgaard, a few of which you can find below. In order to keep everything fair and balanced, a few snarky comments have been tossed into the mix, as well.
Aww! Maggie Gyllenhaal has given birth to her second baby girl
Congratulations to Maggie Gyllenhaal on the birth of daughter Gloria Ray. We wish you all the best xxx
Maggie Gyllenhaal curses her baby to a lifetime of obscurity with a relatively normal name.
