Maggie Gyllenhaal expecting another girl & she refuses to sell the baby photos

Maggie Gyllenhaal

I called Maggie Gyllenhaal’s pregnancy back in October of last year, and then in November, Maggie’s rep confirmed the happy news to Us Weekly. It became pretty clear that Maggie and her husband, Peter Sarsgaard, were expecting their second child, but Maggie didn’t confirm it herself until just this very moment. She and Peter are expecting another girl, who will join big sister Ramona, who is 5 years old.

And it’s another girl for Maggie Gyllenhaal. The actress is expecting a second daughter later this year. She’ll join big sister Ramona, 5.

“I’m so pregnant,” says Gyllenhaal, 34, while promoting her May release Hysteria. “This is a great, loose, black outfit — I had to take my shoes off.”

Gyllenhaal attended various premieres while secretly expecting her second child, not an easy feat for her.

“I find it difficult to pretend you’re not pregnant, which I had to do. I didn’t let anyone know until three and a half months this time. I went to film festivals. I’m throwing up in the bathroom and having to keep pretzels in my purse, and having to fit into dresses,” she says.

Gyllenhaal and hubby Peter Sarsgaard don’t plan on selling any baby photos, and Gyllenhaal won’t reveal her due date to preserve her privacy and not tip off the press.

Well, she didn’t really “hide” anything successfully, considering her red carpet photos in October had me and several other sites calling “bump!”. Her boobs looked bigger, and she had a little bump, and she was a little bit fuller in the face. Still, no woman should have to publicly declare her pregnancy before she’s ready. And while I respect the whole “we’re not going to sell the baby photos” thing, I have to ask: would there really be that much interest? I’m interested in Maggie Gyllenhaal, sure. Because I like her and I think she’s a cool lady. But I don’t see People Magazine or Us Weekly’s editors sitting around, wondering if Maggie’s baby photos are worth $100,000.

God, I love Peter Sarsgaard. He’s The Sex. He and Maggie seem tight too, which is nice.

    Um, does anyone care to see her baby photos….

    • Shelly says:

      LOL, that’s the first thing I thought of when I saw the headline. I like her and all, but she is pretty low-key to the point that I forget about her until I see her in a movie. Which is cool.

  2. Annaloo says:

    Reading this, I just realized that I don’t even know what her first kid looks like… but as a fan of gossip, this announcement seems pretentious and unneccessary…It’s not like Maggie Gyllenhaal’s child is going to fetch Suri Cruise or PaxShilohVivianKnoxZaharaMaddox money or attention, so who really cares if she’s publishing pictures or no?

    • podzol says:

      To be fair, Bc there are no quotes and that part is a write-up, we don’t know if she was just answering the journalist’s q about photo selling or announcing it right off the bat… It’s pretty innucuous in any case, i never had the sense that she had some self-important view of herself.

      • lucy2 says:

        I agree, I bet she was asked, didn’t make an announcement.
        While I doubt there’s much demand anyway, I do respect them choosing to keep their family as private as possible.

  3. Jackie says:

    i have a complete and total crush on this man. he is so sexy!

    loved him every since the movie, The Centre of the World.

    i would take him over brad, george…he beats them all!

    ok, i have to go take a cold shower now.

  4. ahoyhoy says:

    Sarsgaard really IS ‘The Sex’. In “Kinsey” when he & Liam Neeson start making out–WOWZA! That was HOT!

  5. Samigirl says:

    I love her. Never thought she was sexy until I saw Secretary. “And for the first time in my life I felt beautiful. Finally part of the earth. I touched the soil and he loved me back.” That line gives me chill bumps. :)

    • Eve says:

      I love Secretary too! But, sadly, that’s the last time James Spader looked hot (at least, the last time I can remember).

      • Samigirl says:

        Eve, you’ve been cracking me up all morning on the threads. And yes, James Spader was definitely sexy in that movie. Funny, I never thought he was hot in Pretty in Pink, but he gets to be like 40 and I’m all over him. James Spader in Boston Legal and The Office? Not so much :(

      • Eve says:

        That’s because he plays such a jerk in that movie we tend to overlook his appearance — because, technically, he looked super cute in it (Pretty in Pink).

        I think he’s great in Secretary (he usually plays offbeat characters, and he does that quite well).

      • Samigirl says:

        I used to fall for jerks. You’d think I’d have loved him ;-)

    • orion70 says:

      My favorite movie quote of hers is when she is explaining why she left law school in Stranger than Fiction. “I figured if I was going to make the world a better place, I’d do it with cookies”.

  6. Franny says:

    I want to sit her down and put some make up on her.

  7. DuBarry says:

    Well that’s a relief, because nobody wants to buy her baby photos.

  8. Katherine says:

    Please. Maggie Gyllenhaal didn’t speak to Us Magazine. Typical fabricated story. As far as the selling of photos – LOL! I love her and her husband but I cannot believe there is any demand for those photos. If Nicole Kidman and Halle Barry were unable to generate any lucrative offers for their babies how in the hell would Maggie and Peter?

    Shattered Glass is one of my favorite films and Peter is great in it. I also loved Secretary.

  9. Maya says:

    Congratulations to them! I like this couple a lot. They’re both talented and also manage to stay low-key, which I suppose is because they both usually do indie films (and a bit of theater), don’t they? Except for Maggie’s role in The Dark Knight, of course.

    • Samigirl says:

      Peter did The Skeleton Key, Dead Man Walking, Jarhead, The Green Lantern, Orpahn, and a few other big name films I’m missing. She’s definitely more indie than he is, although, like you said, The Dark Knight, a Nanny McPhee movie, and one of my favorites, Riding in Cars with Boys :)

  10. dorothy says:

    I like them. They seem like a normal family. They don’t go to every opening like some celebrities do. It’s refreshing.

  11. Bree says:

    Magazines wouldn’t even pay one dollar for her baby pics.

    When you have paparazzi camping on your private property and trying to drill a hole in your hospital room ceiling (Jolie-Pitt) than releasing pics is the best option.

  12. Courtney says:

    who cares not all celebs sell pics of their kids to magazines and they still get photographed anyway it’s not a big deal either way. it’s not that Nicole Kidman didn’t get offers for the first pics of Sunday Rose she just gave them to people for Free because she didn’t want to make a specticale out of her child and because of her age at the time she wouldn’t have gotten big money anyway. the press thinks women having children after age 40 is irresponsible

  13. mel says:

    I absolutely cannot stand her…and here is why….As Gyllenhaal, 27, said on TV: “Because I think America has done reprehensible things and is responsible in some way and so I think the delicacy with which it’s dealt allows that to sort of creep in.”

    I will never ever ever support one of her movies. Ever.

  14. Anna says:

    For all of those who are saying that no one is interested in her baby photos….check out this celebitchy story

    • Melanie says:

      God I say America was innocent ? No. But one can show respect to those who died in a horrific incident that was not their fault. Cute comment but not really relevant.

  15. Gene Parmesan says:

    i love peter but i just saw him in Boys dont cry and iv been freaked out for a while now….sheesh he plays psychopath real well..

  16. mew says:

    If she’s not selling the baby pics then that’s a huge plus for her – kids are not market stuff to be sold.

  17. Daphne says:

    Public interest doesn’t just naturally happen with certain families. It’s garnered. I’d LOVE to know the deets of family situations for one or two awesome celeb couples, but a lot of them don’t share it, and I respect that greatly. Pimping out your family in hollywood seems to be a trend that’s catching on. But you CAN avoid it and the press will leave you alone. If that’s what you want (and certain celebs don’t).

  18. orion70 says:

    I love him. Watched the Man in the Iron Mask on the weekend and forgot that he was in it. He was so adorable. Not the best movie though.

    Really like them as a couple.

  19. Ruby Red Lips says:

    I just looooove Peter Sarsgaard – he is so delightfully downright sxy and bad…he makes my skin shiver with excitement when I look at those photos!

    Now off for a cold beverage to cool down! ;)

    I saw her the other day on the subway. Very pregnant! She had that pregnant glow. I thought she looked amazing.
