Did anyone have any idea that Laura Linney was even pregnant? After a quick Google search, I can tell that the answer to that is “no”. Kudos to Laura for keeping that off the radar – that’ll have been no small feat! I think Laura Linney is super underrated, so I always love when stories about her pop up.
