Us Weekly: Kirsten Dunst is pregnant, planning her wedding in Austin in the spring

Kirsten Dunst rocks a cute black dress to Alfred Coffee + Kitchen

I saw these photos of Kirsten Dunst yesterday and thought “wow she looks pregnant.” Then I wondered when she was planning her wedding with Jesse Plemons. Then I sort of moved on to other things. But as it turns out, Kiki wasn’t just rocking her forever “bumpy” style – she actually is pregnant, for real. Congrats!

With two close pals expecting, Kirsten Dunst was “in baby mode,” the then-32-year-old confessed to UK’s Red magazine in 2014, adding, “I think 33 is a good age to have your first baby.” Her mid-thirties aren’t bad either. A source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly that the 35-year-old actress and fiancé Jesse Plemons are expecting their first child.

And that’s not the only project in the works for Dunst and the Breaking Bad alum, 29. The ex-costars (they started dating in 2016 while playing husband and wife on FX’s Fargo) are slated to wed in Austin next spring. Dunst has already tapped her close pals, Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy, to create her dress. “I can’t imagine not doing it,” Kate told Us at the September 18 Woodshock premiere in L.A. Though her sister noted they hadn’t started working on the piece: “We hopefully will get inspiration and figure it out.”

To hear the actress tell it, the nuptials will be an understated affair. In 2016, she told In Style UK her ideal vows would be “intimate.” Her perfect setting: “Courthouse, dinner party and DJ with friends and family. I’ll treat it like it would be my fortieth birthday.”

I’ve been covering Kirsten’s interviews for years, and it was always clear to me that she really longed to be a wife and mother. Those were her big goals for her 30s. I personally thought that she and Garrett Hedlund split because he was gun-shy about getting engaged or married, and she moved on to Jesse Plemons rather quickly because he was much more amenable to “settling down.” I’m glad to see that she’s getting what she always wanted! But I do kind of wonder if she and Jesse are going to wait until spring to get married. Judging from these photos, Kirsten is already bumping along. I kind of think she’s already past her first trimester. Would she schedule her wedding for when she’s heavily pregnant?

      I got married in Austin in springtime! Go Kiki! You deserve happiness.

    • AV says:

      Man, I thought for sure she was pregnant at Cannes back in May when she started crying on the red carpet. She’s a sweet person, I hope she has a great year!

  2. Hh says:

    I hope she doesn’t rush the wedding because she’s pregnant. Some people really try to rush being official so their children won’t be “illegitimate.” I hate that mentality.

  3. minx says:

    Aw, that’s nice. Cute couple.

  4. Tiffany27 says:

    Awww! Congrats to her. She really has always wanted to be a mother.

  5. JA says:

    Bound to happen sooner or later… she was dropping baby bombs when she was with that hot white boy, Garrett?? Anyways congrats good luck Kiki!!

  6. Margo S. says:

    So happy for her. They had great chemistry in Fargo. He is SO in love with her. It’s amazing.

    • InVain says:

      Yes…I loved them in Fargo. I don’t get the attraction to him personally, but he seems like a nice enough dude.

  7. Rose says:

    So for some reason I thought she already had a kid a few years ago? I’m clearly losing my mind

    • Becki says:

      Me too!! I was like, wasn’t she already pregnant?? Maybe it was her flowy style of clothes that made us think that.

  8. Kitten says:

    Love me some Kiki. Congrats, girl.

    I wonder if maybe this is why she and Garrett Hedlund broke up? Maybe she was ready to start a family and he was not?

    • SM says:

      That was my feeling too. She was talkig babies and being a homemaker when she was with Garrett. He clearly did not budge. And I admire people for being honest with each other, unlike some of people who decide to have a band aid baby (cough, Jen Garner, cough, Gwen Stefani). and now she got what she wanted and that’s great.
      Not that relevant, but how does one stays so white living in sunny California?

    • African Sun says:

      I get that impression he didn’t want marriage and she did.

      Fair play to her for moving on when she saw she wasn’t getting what she deserved. You have to respect that.

    • teacakes says:

      That’s the impression I got too, but it can’t have been a surprise since she was talking about wanting marriage and babies since before they even got together.

      And I love me some Kiki too. She’s been in too many things I love, both as a child and as an adult, and her style is impeccable and unique. ForEver fave ♡♡♡

  9. smcollins says:

    Congrats to the happy couple! I wish her a healthy pregnancy and delivery, and I hope she doesn’t struggle with PPD given her history with Depression. I have such a soft spot for her.

  10. belle says:

    Congrats! Kirsten is one of those actresses I grew up watching in the 90s, so I’ll always have a soft spot for her.

  11. Yup, Me says:

    Congrats to her. I thought there might he an announcement after the DF had a picture of her cupping her tummy this weekend.

  12. NicoleinSavannah,GA says:

    !!!!!YAY!!!!!

  13. Shutterbug99 says:

    Yay! Kiki is my fave and she has wanted this for so long! Congrats Kiki and Landry!

    To other asking if Hedlund’s reluctance to settle down led to their split, I’ve always thought so. I really liked those two together, but I have to say Jesse Plemons seems like a good guy and a good match for Kiki.

  14. Vinot says:

    No shade no tea i thought those were tights she was wearing. But she looks beautiful; congrats!!

  15. MeowuiRose says:

    Yay for her. Also goodness her legs are pale. I was blinded lol. Not shaming her at all. Growing up I always wanted light skin. I love my coloring now but I think it’s because my mom is just about as pale as her. Anywhos as a big fan I’m glad she is doing well :)

  16. teacakes says:

    awwww congratulations Kiki!

    And you’re right, Kaiser, she’s been talking about wanting marriage and babies since she was with that guy from Rilo Kiley (her bf before Garrett), so as a fan I’m really happy for her even if I selfishly hope she doesn’t actually retire from acting like she’s hinted at doing sonetimes. She’s one of the best actresses of her generation, and it would be awful to lose her talent.

    (I was also watching Little Women the other day – seriously it’s SO GOOD, guys, and the cast is incredible esp in the first half where you still have Kiki as young Amy – and realised that Winona, Claire and Kiki have all had career comebacks/resurgence thanks to tv, it was so fitting).

  17. I Choose Me says:

    Aw, congrats. She’s been wanting to be a wife and mother for awhile. I wish her and fiance every future happiness.

    Congratulations to Kirsten!
