Emma Stone, who confirmed she was pregnant with husband Dave McCary earlier this year, was spotted out and about in Los Angeles earlier this week. Emma Stone is a busy mom-to-be.
The Oscar winner was spotted in Los Angeles running errands this week while sporting a baby bump beneath her denim shirt. This is the first child for the Easy A star, who married Saturday Night Live segment director Dave McCary in a private ceremony last year.
Although neither has spoken about their romance with the press, the couple is rumoured to have met in December 2016, when Emma hosted SNL and Dave directed her in a digital short. They announced their engagement in December 2019 with a casual Instagram post on Dave’s page of Emma showing off her unique pearl ring.
Emma Stone and Dave tend to keep their personal life out of the public eye, but in a 2018 interview with ELLE, the La La Land actress opened up to good friend Jennifer Lawrence about when she would be ready for kids.
“My perspective about kids has changed as I’ve gotten older. I never babysat or anything. As a teenager, I was like, I’m never getting married, I’m never having kids,” she shared at the time. “And then I got older and I was like, I want to get married, I want to have kids.” She also told Lawrence that she’s “at peace” with taking time off work to focus on things in her home life.
“I think it’s been a good time to get a little perspective because things were so heavy work wise for the past few years,” the star, who will next appear as the iconic 101 Dalmatians villain in Cruella, added. “And honestly, so many of my dreams are now personal and less professional.” The Oscar winner will take on a younger version of the iconic 101 Dalmatians villain role in the standalone movie Cruella, set for release in 2020. “She is professional in every way, very talented and focused on her work, and Dave respects that,” the industry source said. “He supports her and is unselfish in his desire for her success. Those are great qualities in a man for someone like Emma. She is impressed by his talent and respects him immensely.”
Shortly after Stone and McCary tied the knot last year, she also dropped some hints about being ready to start a family. Speaking to Entertainment Tonight about her animated movie The Croods: A New Age, which was released in November, the actress was asked how she felt about starting her own “pack.” “I feel pretty good about starting my pack,” she said, before joking that her family might act a little differently than the Croods. “I don’t think that my pack would be quite as physically capable as the Croods are,” Stone teased. “They’re pretty rough and tumble and I don’t know if my pack would be as rough and tumble.”
