Alexandra Daddario Expecting First Child with Husband Andrew Form

During a recent interview, actress Alexandra Daddario opened up about the extraordinary measures she took to conceal her pregnancy while filming ‘Mayfair Witches.’ The 38-year-old star announced that she is expecting her first child with husband Andrew Form.

Daddario shared that hiding her pregnancy was particularly challenging due to the physical toll it took on her. “I was on set, and I was throwing up and having make-out scenes with my co-stars right after,” she said in an interview with Vogue, published on July 10. “By week five, I was like, ‘There’s no way I’m going to be able to hide this.'”

While she briefly entertained the notion that disclosing her pregnancy might earn her some reprieve, the reality was different. “If I tell my job that I’m pregnant, I’m going to get a lot of time off to go throw up in peace,” she thought. However, she found solace in the understanding nature of her colleagues. “I have wonderful co-stars who have kids, and everyone was very understanding about making out with a nauseous, vomiting girl.”

While working on AMC’s ‘Mayfair Witches,’ Daddario dealt with morning sickness. She also revealed that she had experienced a pregnancy loss before. “Well, I had been pregnant [before],” she said, without delving into details. “It’s long and complicated, so I don’t want to be too specific. Those kinds of losses and trauma are very hard to explain unless you’ve been through them. I really relate to all the women who have been through those kinds of things in a way that I didn’t understand fully before. It’s very, very painful.”

Processing the fact that she was pregnant again was not easy for Daddario. “You have a lot of complicated feelings,” she explained, referencing the complex emotions stemming from her past trauma.

Daddario found a peculiar form of solace in her work. “Work was both a stressor and a savior,” she acknowledged. “I was so overwhelmed with work. Part of me was like, ‘This is the worst thing ever.’ Then part of me was like, ‘This is actually a great distraction.’ Because I’m not sitting there all day long in my house going, ‘If I pick up this pot to make pasta, is something bad going to happen? If I eat this pasta, is something bad going to happen?'”

Despite the difficulties, Daddario has been navigating this period with resilience. Her story sheds light on the challenges many women face while balancing their careers and personal health, especially when dealing with such deeply personal experiences.
