Minnie Driver, 38, wants to be surprised when she gives birth to her first child in August – calling herself “old-fashioned”.
“Women for thousands of years have not found out,” she says. “I couldn’t base something that was so auspicious and beautiful of that moment, and take away the surprise for home décor.”
Just like anyone else that wants to be surprised, friends and family can’t stop guessing.
“They say you lose your sweet tooth, which apparently means it’s a boy, but I’m convinced the baby is a girl,” says Driver. “I’ve kind of lost my sweet tooth, but my mum is like, ‘No, you’re fat like I was, and I only had girls.’ She meant thick in my waist!”
Early in her pregnancy, Minnie said she craved olives and it seems her “green” cravings have continued,
“I’ve been addicted to green foods,” she says. “Green apples are probably the highest priority on my list. They are my complete obsession. I have a refrigerator full of them.”
