Leelee Sobieski and husband Adam Kimmel are expecting their second child together. The 30-year-old actress announced the baby news Wednesday evening at Christian Dior’s Cruise 2015 show in Brooklyn. She wore a bracelet with beads that spelled out, “Mommy.”
The Emmy-nominated actress and her husband are already parents to 4-year-old daughter Louisanna Ray. In terms of her first child and pregnancy, Sobieski hoped for a loving, little girl. Her wish was granted when her daughter was born. “She just looks so smart,” she said. “If she laughs, I laugh. If I heard myself talking a year ago, I’d be like ‘So boring!’ But that’s what happens. My baby is fascinating to me.”
During her first pregnancy, Sobieski craved ginger and “little kid food.” She continued to meet with her personal trainer up until her due date. ” I keep it nice and slow,” she said. “Like nice, long walks along the Hudson River.”
Sobieski revealed she is expecting her second child by stepping out with a large baby bump Wednesday evening. She wore a floor-length royal blue silk dress. She pointed out the fact she is expecting by placing a hand on her growing stomach. The actress also wore blue heels, a silver watch and beaded bracelets. Sobieski wore her hair in a bun, and accessorized with black eyeliner and pink lipstick.
The Deep Impact star married fashion designer Adam Kimmel in August 2010. Kimmel is the son of American real estate developer Martin Kimme,l and the grandson of American boat racer and designer Donald Aronow. The couple began dating in January 2009 and got engaged later that same year. Sobieski was spotted wearing a giant ring on her finger during the Public Enemies premiere in L.A in June of that year. After announcing her first pregnancy in September 2009, the lovebirds postponed their wedding planning . “We have pushed that back,” the actress said, “We are going to do to maybe do it in the spring.”
Before marrying Kimmel, the Eyes Wide Shut actress was a virgin. She remained so until she was 26 years old. In an interview with Access Hollywood, Sobieski explained her decision to abstain from sex until marriage was important to her. “It wasn’t for any religious reasons or anything like that,” she said. “My virginity was the most precious gift that I could ever give to a man, and I wanted to be sure I was giving it to the right man.”
Sobieski’s breakout role was in the motion picture, Deep Impact. She later went on to play roles in films such as Never Been Kissed, Joy Ride and The Glass House. Her most recent performance can be seen in the 2012 movie, Branded. The actress’ latest film, The Last Film Festival, has yet to be released. However, a special screen of the movie was held in September 2013 in New York City.
The sex of the second child Sobieski and husband Kimmel are expecting together has yet to be determined. Sobieski’s rep confirmed the second pregnancy with People shortly after her baby bump debut. She attended the Dior event with Margot Robbie and Helena Christensen.
