She’s 35?! She looks about 25! I wonder what her secret is. I bet her baby will be every bit as beautiful as she is.

Wow! Didn’t see that one coming! That baby is gonna have amazing eyes! Mom and dad have gorgeous eyes.

I wish them all the best!

Brooklyn on

Congratulations to Amy & Darren! I loved Amy in Enchanted 🙂

Wow that’s so cool! I absolutely adore her, and for some reason she’s one of those people you don’t expect to hear a pregnancy announcement from! Nonetheless, I am so excited for her and her fiance, and can’t wait to see their undoubtedly beautiful baby 🙂

She’s one of my favourite actresses! I have no doubt that she will be ridiculously cute with her baby belly! Congrats to the happy couple. 🙂 Looking forward to watching for photos.

robinepowell on

Congratulations to Amy. The few movies I’ve seen her in, I’ve liked her. One of the few actors who did feature films, but I’ve never anything gossip/tabloid about.

She comes across as a nice person, which she means she’ll be a great mother. 😉

MarijaP on

I love her and her role in Enchanted

Jacquelyn on

Just a little sad she didn’t bother to get married first. She is one of my favorite actors and I was hoping she would buck the trend of Hollywood but oh well…Best Wishes to her. She will be a wonderful mom.

Harley on

Now THAT I didn’t see coming! Holy cow! Congrats to her and her hunny-love!

Yazmin on

I love amy! all the best. she’s gonna b a great mommy.

L on

Awww I love Amy, CONGRATS!!!!

Kimberlee Chrisman on

OOPS! Another star who got the carriage before the marriage.

fuzibuni on

Jacquelyn and Kim,
Amy’s been with her fiance for 7 years, they’ve been engaged for almost 2 years, and she’s stated before that Darren really wants to have kids and get married.

It’s not like she is rushing into things and having a baby before she and darren are ready.

Lauren on

I agree with Jaquelyn and Kim, especially since Amy’s said she hasn’t had time to do anything about a wedding (which begs the question of whether you want a wedding or a marriage imo, since the latter can be done in a matter of minutes. You can always have a wedding later with more time and planning) and that Darren’s way more ready for marriage and kids than she is.
Regardless, I love love LOVE Amy-she’s easily one of my favorite actresses, and she seems like such a sweet person. So I can’t wait to see her on here. Congrats to her and Darren!

Stephany on

I’m so excited for her! She has easily become one of my favorite actresses and I think she’s just such a gorgeous woman!

Nika on

Yaaay! Congratulations! I love her as an actress, and I’m sure she will look gorgeous and very stylish pregnant! She will be a great mom I think!

And to the people commenting about carriage before marriage or something like that: seriously? What world are you living in? It’s just too sad for words that some people still think like that, and then come here and they just HAVE to give their oppinion on someones happy news. And if they don’t have a problem with the way they do things, then why the h*ll should you? Find something better to do!

Chestar on

Yay So happy for them both !
Amy is a brilliant actress – plus she was so cute pregnant in Junebug, so we know its going to suit her.

Anais on

That is so great! Congrats to Amy and her fiance!

Mandy on

Amy and Darren seem so thrilled to be having a baby, so what if its before marriage? Amy is very busy with her film roles and trying to plan and have a wedding around that is difficult.

Its a lot easier to make a baby then all of that. And besides, maybe they had this all planned… baby before. Its not up to us to judge anyways. If they are happy, that’s all that matters in the end isn’t it?

How about we just wish them well and hope for a safe and easy pregnancy and birth for her and be done with it.

I really hope the baby inherits mom’s gorgeous hair. I am hoping for a little girl, the spitting image of her mom. We’ll see.

Amy is a spectacular actress. I can’t wait to buy Julie and Julia.

Em on

Alot of people still think that way. Only in the celebrity world has it become acceptable.

I wonder what her family thinks. She grew up mormon.

juliet holly on

This is big and great news! Congrats Amy and Darren!

Jessi on

Congratulations to Amy!

And as long as she is stable (financially and emotionally which I bet she is) I think it is fantastic that she is pregnant! There are some of us that have never had the chance to have a male in our lives because of situations that were beyond our control, so I’m happy for her!

brannon on

Sorry Em…not only in the celebrity world. Check last years data on the subject. Very exciting! and yes – she looks amazing for 35! Wow!

traxie on

This is great news! This is one of the few recent announcements where I’ve felt genuinely delighted (instead of thinking oh dear, or wondering what kind of godawful name the child will be cursed with …) I bet she joins the many ranks of older mothers who have boys, and that she goes with a lovely and classic name like William!

Shannon on

Oh, wow! I was not expecting this one at all! I love her, she is such a wonderful actress. I am so happy for her and her fiance. Many congrats!

Kristin on

So happy for her and her fiance! I’ve followed her career since her very first film role. She is one of my favorite actresses and she seems like such a sweetheart. She’s going to be a great mom!

Thumper on

Wow, how cool! She’s such a sweetheart and she’s a beautiful woman, inside and out. Fiance is a cutie too. 😉

Ivybeth on

I am so happy for Darren and Amy i loved Amy in all of her movies so Congratulations to you Darren and Amy !

I love them both
