Filipino-Australian actress Anne Curtis-Smith, 34, has announced that she's pregnant with her first child via an artistic Instagram video starring herself and her husband, Erwan Heussaff, 32.
"I think you should know something... another reason to love November," she captioned the video, sharing it with her 13.2 million Instagram fans.
In the video, the couple are seen walking through streets, dancing through fields, smelling flowers and smiling, with Curtis-Smith wearing a bulky coat.
Then, the star takes off her coat to reveal a baby bump, which she clutches with both hands:
The video has been viewed 353,000 times in less than an hour, with the lyrics in the accompanying song saying, "Nothing's going to hurt you baby".
Her Instagram post is already full of congratulatory messages from the couple's famous friends, with Heart Evangelista writing, "congrats Anne and Erwan!!!!!!!!" and Mariel Padilla writing, "remember how I gave you that 'gift'. hahaha... I love you and I am so happy for you." Angel Locsin wrote "whaaaat!?!?", and included many emojis in her message. Chienna Filomeno wrote a comment saying "makes me soooo happy," while Yassi Pressman wrote "ateeee," and "congratulations".
These surprised and happy notes suggest that the couple have kept the pregnancy private from more than just the media and their fans.
Interestingly, the announcement of her pregnancy comes after Curtis-Smith hit back at media for asking women when they are going to have children during a press conference just over a month ago, on September 30.
“The press should stop asking that to any woman, because you don’t know what they’re going through," she said, and we now know she was pregnant at the time.
“For me, it will happen in God’s time, and I think at any time I’m ready for it. But I’m speaking for every woman. You don’t know what they’re going through. I hope you guys don’t take this the wrong way, but I think in respect to every woman, you should stop asking when they’re going to get married, why don’t they have a baby, or when they are going to have a baby.
"I have a lot of friends who may be trying, and medyo nakakasakit [it kind of hurts] when people keep asking them, ‘When are you going to have a baby?’ Maybe they just don’t want to have a baby," she added.
Curtis-Smith and her chef/food influencer husband Heussaff in 2017, and the pair have been together for around nine years. Curtis-Smith is Australian-Filipino, while Heussaff is French-Filipino.
Curtis-Smith was in Dubai recently to promote her latest film Just A Stranger, and posted this video of herself at The Palace Downtown on September 6, showing just how much her baby bump has developed in the past two months:
