As the mystery surrounding her pregnancy wore on many were wondering if Selma Blair would break the silence on her experiences during the often difficult trip to motherhood. The star of Hellboy 1 & 2, has at last shattered her vow of silence with a desperate cry for pancakes!
The 38 year old who is expecting her first child has been craving pancakes and grapefruit and despite the obvious (or in her case not-so obvious) dietary aberrations she has stated that she’s having a great pregnancy.
This is the first time Blair has openly spoken about anything related to her pregnancy since it was revealed back in January that she and her fashion designer boyfriend, Jason Bleick are expecting their first born.
The actress, who started her big screen career in 1996 featuring in The Broccoli Theory as a lesbian, says she is enjoying pregnancy and finding it easy to cope with while allowing herself to indulge in her food whims removes any pressure that might otherwise make it more difficult.
In a recent interview with Access Hollywood the Cruel Intentions star said: “I’m having a great pregnancy. It’s due this summer. I’m not going to say what (the sex) is yet. Hopefully it’s one or the other. Who knows these days!
“I eat pancakes all day. I don’t eat gluten, so I eat gluten-free pancakes. It’s a little better, but not much! I have a lot of pancake cravings, a lot of grapefruit [cravings].”
Clearly her sense of humour is as ferocious as her appetite.
While she’s preparing for the arrival of her little one she is also enjoying the lack of acting work and clearly relishing her new found freedom as something of an earth mother.
“I’m unemployed and barefoot and pregnant!”
