Kirsten Dunst announced her second pregnancy with a bumpy W Mag cover

Kirsten Dunst is knocked up again! And she announced her second pregnancy in a very “Kirsten Dunst” way, by posing for W Magazine with her nice-sized bump. Kirsten is still with Jesse Plemons, and they got married at some point, I think sometime after they welcomed their first child, a boy named Ennis Howard Plemons. They met on the first season of Fargo and got together shortly after filming was completed. Kirsten has never made it a secret that she wanted to “settle down” with a husband and children, and I love that she made it happen with Meth Damon. As you can see, the W Magazine cover is for their “Directors Issue,” and there are multiple covers. This one was with Sofia Coppola “directing” three of her muses, Elle Fanning, Kiki and Rashida Jones. Here’s the part about Kirsten’s pregnancy:

Kirsten Dunst is pregnant with her second child. She made the announcement in W magazine’s Directors Issue, out today.

The actress appears in a photo story conceived by her longtime collaborator Sofia Coppola, who looked to the opulence of 1980s society hostesses as inspiration for the shoot. In one image, Dunst is swathed in a lavender Valentino dress; in another, she’s clutching the fabric on a hot pink sleeveless Armani Privé frock. But the look that opens the story makes the biggest impact: Dunst is shown reclining on an ornate bed wearing a custom dress by Rodarte, a considerable baby bump peeking out from the lace design by Kate and Laura Mulleavy. (The designers are good friends of Dunst’s—in fact, she announced her first pregnancy by appearing in a photoshoot for the brand’s 2018 look book while carrying her now two-year-old son Ennis.) The bespoke piece Dunst wore for the shoot is based on a similar silhouette she wore back then—something her mother reminded her about, knowing it would fit her body’s current shape.

Dunst, who is married to her former Fargo costar Jesse Plemons, appears in the story alongside Elle Fanning and Rashida Jones, all of whom wearing the high fashion looks we’ve missed while spending the year in sweatpants. On set, Coppola and the photographer Zoë Ghertner encouraged Dunst to pose draped across the carpet—a logistically hairy activity for someone who’s expecting.

“Every shot was on the floor,” Dunst joked to W, in the story that accompanies the spread. “I was like, ‘I can’t get up.’ I felt like Urkel.”

[From W Magazine]

“I felt like Urkel” should be the quote included in all pregnancy announcement stories from now on. When Hilaria Baldwin invariably gets knocked up again, she too will feel like “El Urkel.” Anyway, I’m very happy for Kirsten and I think she’s happy as a clam these days. Adoring husband, cute kid and another baby on the way.

    I’m confused: Who’s Meth Damon?

    • psl says:

      Did you watch Breaking Bad? People started calling him that bc he looks a little like Matt Damon, and the show is about meth.

    • Astrid says:

      I had to look it up too! From wiki….When Plemons appeared on Breaking Bad, fans nicknamed him “Meth Damon”, due to the show’s centering on the meth business, and Plemons’ resemblance to actor Matt Damon.[30][7][8][31] One of his first film roles, at age 12, was playing the younger version of Damon’s character in the film All the Pretty Horses (2000). He also appeared as Philip Seymour Hoffman’s son in the film The Master (2012), another actor who Plemons has been compared to.

    I love her and Jesse Plemmons together! They were AMAZING in Fargo, Season 2!

    • lucy2 says:

      I do too! I liked both separately, and they were great on the show, and it was fun finding out they were together IRL too. They seem very happy together. She looks beautiful in this photoshoot.

    • Alice says:

      Agreed! Love them both on their own and they seem so well suited for each other.

  4. Pandora says:

    Hahaha same here… Meth Damon? I was about to go look up her past relationships but it’s more fun to watch the comments unfold

  5. P says:

    Cute, I like her a lot. She dogged a bullet with that ex of hers.

  6. girl_ninja says:

    I do like Kirsten and am so happy for her. She and Jesse seem to be so content with their little family. I love that she went the young man route in her partner/husband.

    That’s my plan, find a younger man so that when I’m old he will take care of me 🙂

  7. Lauren says:

    She’s always been my favorite. Congratulations to her!!!!

  8. Lilly (with the double-L) says:

    El Urkel. LMAO. These bon mots and the pointed leader photos and commentary keep me coming back.

  9. Bryn says:

    Do we really need to call him meth damon though. Jesse plemons is a great actor and seems like a good dude.

  10. Courtney B says:

    She looks gorgeous as do Elle and Rashida. Very glam and her styling is fabulous. She can work the 1930s/1940s hair.
    I love her with Jesse. He’s a great actor—one of ‘those guys’ that you realize has been in a bazillion things even when you only knew his face and not name. He really seems to adore her and she seems really happy and content but not in a ‘putting it on for social media’ way.

    meth damon 🤣

  12. Mer says:

    I just love both Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemmons. But to me, he’ll always be Lance…I mean Landry.

    Kristen’s a good actor and so is her husband. A good film of hers to check out when you’re in the mood for something darker is The Two Faces of January (if you haven’t seen it already). Three amazing actors/leads in that one film.
