La prima gravidanza segreta di Constance Wu è stata così segreta che nemmeno i fan accaniti lo sapevano fino a quando il bambino non è scoppiato. Dando alla luce la sua prima figlia con il fidanzato Ryan Kattner a metà del 2020, il rappresentante di Wu ha finalmente rivelato la nascita ai punti vendita nel dicembre di quell’anno.
Since then, the "Crazy Rich Asians" star has been more open about her experience as a working mom in Hollywood. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter in July 2022, Wu credited — of all people — her "Terminal List" costar Chris Pratt on his supportive understanding of her journey. "My first day on set was hard," the actor revealed at the time, describing her first time apart from her daughter as "so emotional." Pratt, a fellow girl-parent to two with wife Katherine Schwarzenegger, was "so supportive and kind and caring on set," Wu said, calling herself "really fortunate to have had him as my partner."
Motherhood is clearly working in Wu's favor. On "The Kelly Clarkson Show" in October 2022, the "Velma" star explained that her pregnancy even helped her and her estranged mother reconcile after several years, with the two "building a wonderful relationship." It shouldn't be a huge shock, then, that Wu and Kattner are doing it again.
Constance Wu happily shows off upcoming Baby No. 2
Constance Wu is making her second pregnancy social media-friendly this time. On a February 21 Instagram Story, Wu shared a belly-baring photo, with fingers pointing to her sizable baby bump as she smiled. "Bun in the oven. Filipinese baby #2 coming soon," Wu announced alongside the photo. With congratulations in order, the "Fresh Off the Boat" alum may also be trying to reclaim control of her pregnancy narrative. A few days ago, Page Six published paparazzi shots of Wu taking a stroll in Los Angeles, wearing a New York Giants cap, striped shirt, and an ostensible baby bump.
During Wu and beau Ryan Kattner's first pregnancy, the COVID-19 pandemic had just caused a nationwide shutdown in the U.S. Giving birth in the summer of 2020, Wu enjoyed a paparazzi-free maternity break, having stayed off social media for a period since late 2019 (i.e. no pressure to post birth announcements).
