Diablo Cody is pregnant with her first child – and married

HBO Luxury Lounge In Honor Of 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards - Day 3
Diablo Cody is the tattooed screenwriter who won the Oscar for best screenplay two years ago, for Juno. She also wrote that Megan Fox clunker of a horror movie, Jennifer’s Body, and is responsible for the critically acclaimed Showtime series, The United States of Tara. She’s been alternately feted and ridiculed, and while some people admire her plucky style others point out that she’s a hipster who’s trying too hard to be clever. I know I found some of the dialogue in Juno ridiculous and over-the-top, but people loved that movie and Cody is laughing all the way to the bank. More power to her I guess.

Anyway Cody, 31, is pregnant and married, which both come as a surprise to me. I never heard that she got married but she swears she didn’t try to keep it a secret.

Long-time married! Pregnant! In two Tweets over five hours celebrated screenwriter Diablo Cody has rocked the Twitter-sphere with two major announcements Tuesday.

Sort of makes Ellen Page’s big announcement day in ‘Juno’ — which Cody penned — seem pretty tame.

So from the top. On Tuesday afternoon Cody announced: “Thanks for the congrats on my fetus! No secrets here; just thought it would be fun to see how big I could get before someone noticed.”

Pregnancy announcement out of the way, Cody continued five hours later. “I’m not ‘secretly married,’ ” Cody wrote. “I married Dan last summer. Took wedding photos in Times Square, which is pretty much the opposite of secretive.”

E! Online reports that the lucky guy is ‘Chelsea Lately’ staffer Dan Maurio, who told the website: “She’s a great lady to make a fetus with.”

Cody seems to be trying to keep her private life a little closer to her chest than in the past. While doing promotion for Jennifer’s Body last year she said that she was happy Megan Fox was around to take the pressure off her. She also said that she was uncomfortable with the way the media focused on her personal life when Juno was earning accolades in 2007. “I would never put myself out there again like I did with Juno and if I could do it over again, I wouldn’t. It’s not worth it.” She did write a memoir that chronicled her career as a stripper in Minnesota. She gave the press a lot to work with, and they ran with it. Congratulations to Cody and Maurio on their upcoming arrival – and on their marriage that no one heard about!

    “She’s a great lady to make a fetus with.”

    This is actually a pretty cute quote from a husband. It makes me think they’re a good match.

    I’m happy for them and their fetus

    Congrats. Sounds like they are trying to witty by saying fetus. Weirdos.

  5. KatyAlia says:

    I found Juno painful to watch.
    Let’s not talk about its creator, please.

  6. Jane Q. Doe says:

    She’s mentioned the husband in her occasional column for Entertainment Weekly.

    Diablo Cody can be very off-putting. She does seem to try too hard to be “quirky.” It is always a turn off when someone tries too hard to be something they’re not.

    Having said that, I thoroughly enjoyed “Juno” and would watch it again. What a great cast! I also like “Tara,” – again, a great cast, and interesting story lines.

    Congrats to her and her hubby.

    Congratulations to the happy couple!

    I’ve loved Cody back when she was “just” a stripper/blogger. Sometimes her witticisms do get a little overbearing (re: Juno), but overall I enjoy her thoughtful and intelligent insights.

    Juno was a great movie.Cody seems very eclectic, but nothing ridiculous. I just hope they don’t name the baby something obscure that will haunt the child for their whole life.

    Congrats to her and the hubby!

    I thoroughly enjoyed the movie Juno.It stars Jason Bateman and it has some of the best one-liners ever. Still makes me chuckle whenever I watch it.

    “In my opinion, the best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly what you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty… handsome, what have you, the right person will still think the sun shines out your ass. That’s the kind of person that’s worth sticking with.”

    Pearls of wisdom, I tell ya.
