Actor Kirsten Dunst has kept the baby she is expecting with her Fargo co-star, Jesse Plemons, pretty much under wraps. Until now!
We told you back in December that Kirsten and fiancé Jesse had a baby on the way. She’s kept a fairly low profile since then, perhaps seeking to enjoy the baby-growing bubble away from media scrutiny. And really, who can blame her? The whole bump watch situation can get pretty intense. We’re looking at you Kylie-Jenner-chasing-TMZ!
Of course, most expectant mums do want to document their transforming shape and baby-creating skills, at some point. Kirsten enlisted her buddies at fashion house Rodarte to help with that, and it makes perfect sense considering she’s a long-time Rodarte muse.
Muse and mum
Kirsten let us know last year that the label will design her wedding dress (the shindig is due to happen later in 2018) and her designer buds say they wouldn’t have it any other way.
Rodarte’s Kate Mulleavy, said “I can’t imagine not doing it!” Kate’s designer-sister Laura joked,“We hopefully will get inspiration and figure it out.”
These photos conclusively prove that there’s no shortage of inspiration when it comes to these two. Their latest collection is a combination of floaty, fairy-tale confection, with some more tailored vintage-inspired pieces thrown in for good measure.
Kirsten was not the only famous face in Rodarte’s amazing collection reveal. There were a whole bunch of talented women featured in their Women That Inspire Us 2018 shoot, including Ava Phillippe (daughter of Ryan and Reese Witherspoon), actor and writer Miranda July, musician Kim Gordon, Girl Meets World star Rowan Blanchard, R&B duo Chloe x Halle, singer Grimes, actor Danai Gurira, singer Joanna Newsom and film director Gia Coppola (the genius granddaughter of Frances Ford) – to name but a few. Phew!

Babies and chill
It’s clear that babies have been on the cards for Kirsten for quite some time. Last year, she told the Sunday Times she was prepping for a family and this pregnancy announcement came soon after.
“The focus in my life is … well, I’m re-doing a house. I have other things I’m enjoying,” she said. “I’m a homebody. I’m trying to make it all happen. The movie industry isn’t everything to me at all. I’m in a place now where I do want to direct, but I more want to have a family.”
Kirsten told Marie Claire “it’s time to have babies and chill. I wasn’t one of those ‘I need a baby!’ people until my goddaughter was born!”
It’s so great to see she’s obviously just where she wants to be in life right now – expecting a baby and getting ready to marry her bestie. We look forward to hearing more about her thoughts on being a mum and finding out more about the wedding, when she’s ready to share!
