Life imitates art? According to multiple sources, Gaby Hoffman is pregnant, except it's not with the fictional oddball Laird's baby, like how her character on Girls, Caroline, announced during the Girls season three finale. Instead, she's expecting her first child with her longtime boyfriend, cinematographer Chris Dapkins.
The 32-year-old Hoffman, showed up to the Los Angeles premiere of her new film, Obvious Child on June 4 with a noticeable baby bump, and she apparently seemed really happy, as she was boasting a huge smile. Which, understandable — she's going to get a little bundle of joy! No word yet if it's a boy or a girl, and Hoffman has yet to comment on whether she "feels a labia forming," à la Caroline on Girls.
People reported that she was overheard exchanging parenting advice with Busy Phillips, and an onlooker said:
Gaby was beaming from ear to ear and kept rubbing her belly [...] They were chatting and looking over baby pics.
Maybe Caroline can get a tip or two from the actress who plays her...although Caroline would probably dismiss whatever Hoffman had to say. Regardless, her pregnancy could make filming go pretty smoothly — no fictional baby bump needed.
You can see her baby bump pretty clearly, too:
Yup. She's pregnant, all right.
Congratulations to the Hoffman and to Dapkins!
