by Venus Sanders

In an exciting revelation, Elisabeth Moss, renowned for her roles in "The Handmaid's Tale" and "Mad Men," shared the joyous news of her pregnancy during a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The 41-year-old actress joyfully disclosed her impending motherhood to the late-night talk show host, Jimmy Kimmel.

Amidst laughter, Kimmel humorously inquired, "Are you pregnant or just an incredibly committed method actor?" Moss, with a playful spirit, responded, "Little bit of both," emphasizing that she's been fortunate, and the pregnancy is progressing well. The candid exchange showcased Moss's radiant glow as she embraced the excitement of impending motherhood.

Curious and seeking fatherly advice, Moss turned to Kimmel, a seasoned father of four, for insights into the intricacies of hospital preparations. "I wanted to ask you if you had any advice. Things to buy, bring to the delivery room, anything?" Moss inquired with genuine curiosity.

In response, Kimmel shared a gem of advice from none other than Bill Murray, revealing the actor's unconventional yet practical suggestions. Among the recommendations were bringing Christmas lights or beads for a soothing atmosphere, a nightlight, music for ambiance, and candles, albeit battery-powered, to counter the hospital's strict safety regulations on open flames.

Explaining the rationale behind Murray's advice, Kimmel highlighted the less-than-ideal lighting conditions in delivery rooms, humorously describing it as "Wal-Mart-style lighting" for such a momentous occasion. Moss, appreciative of the guidance, expressed her eagerness to implement these suggestions, especially the art of subtly attributing delays to the joys of impending motherhood.

As the conversation unfolded, Moss disclosed that the production of the sixth and final season of "The Handmaid's Tale" is set to commence this summer. With a quick wit, Kimmel playfully suggested that she could already start blaming any delays on her impending motherhood, to which Moss gleefully responded, "Can I? Oh, it's the best. I love that." The lighthearted banter encapsulated the genuine joy Moss is experiencing as she navigates this new chapter in her life.

The conversation also touched upon Moss's role in the upcoming thriller series, "The Veil," set to premiere on Hulu in April. Moss shared an intriguing anecdote related to the series, recounting an incident during the filming of a climactic fight sequence. Despite weeks of training, an unexpected misstep led to Moss breaking her back, specifically fracturing a vertebra. Undeterred, Moss remarkably continued filming the series the day after the incident, showcasing her commitment to her craft.

Elisabeth Moss's pregnancy announcement adds an extra layer of joy to her already illustrious career, and fans are eagerly anticipating updates on this new and exciting chapter in the acclaimed actress's life.
