Congrats to Gossip Girl actress Kaylee DeFer and her boyfriend – Fitz and The Tantrums musician Michael Fitzpatrick – who are expecting their first child together. DeFer – who is currently 21 weeks along – told US Weekly at an event on May 5 that the pregnancy was a surprise.
She revealed, “We weren’t planning on getting pregnant, so right now we’re just enjoying being pregnant.”
The 26-year-old continued, “We think it’s a boy. Well, the doctor is 95 percent sure it’s a boy. The baby was really shy that day, he was sleeping.”
For now – the couple are going to wait until the baby is born to name him.
“We had a girl name and when we found out it was probably a boy, for some reason we felt like we needed to meet him.”
She continued, “I’ve definitely been cooking and baking a lot, but not necessarily the healthiest things in the world. I’ve been on a diet since I was 16. Not really, but I have had to watch my physique for the last 10 years of my life. It’s my job, and now I’m just really guilt-free and enjoying being pregnant, sleeping a lot, eating a lot. If I don’t eat, I get sick. I’m constantly eating and snacking. I just had two all-beef hot dogs.”
When the baby does come she’s taking a break from acting. She stated, “I’ve actually been thinking about venturing into new creative outlets. Mostly writing, still in the acting genre,” she shared. I have a lot of time on my hands. I’ve been wanting to take a break and now I can do the things I didn’t have a chance to do before.”
Just last week she tweeted her thanks to all the well wishers saying, “Thank you so much for all the well wishes we’ve been getting. Michael, the baby, and I are feelin’ the love. Baby names are welcome XO”
