Almost there!

Bryce Dallas Howard put her belly on display in a Dolce & Gabbana gown at the 15th Annual Hollywood Film Awards Gala, held Monday in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The Help actress, 30, and husband Seth Gabel are currently expecting their second child — and 4½-year-old son Theo‘s bets are on a girl! The couple, however, aren’t sharing.

“The thing that every parent hopes for is that the baby’s healthy, I’m healthy. No matter how you feel, that’s the most important thing,” she told PEOPLE.

I think she looks lovely. I’ve always thought that, really, but it still always shocks me how much she looks like her father.

I watched Happy Day reruns on Nick at Nite religiously as a child and Richie Cunningham is so firmly ingrained in my mind that I have a hard time separating the character from the real guy.

I kind of expect for Henry Winkler to start photo-bombing photos of Bryce at every turn.

Bryce must be due any minute now surely, she looks fit to burst! Not sure about the dress she’s wearing…she’s lucky she’s a gorgeous woman because her dress looks like a curtain!

Sarah S. on

Gorgeous dress for her coloring! In the home stretch!

SAR on

Wow, she’s really big! That’s not an insult; she looks beautiful and radiant.

I think it’s a boy.

Marky on

I really like Bryce; she seems to be a very nice person, and I hope she has a great delivery and can just have fun with her baby for a few months. I like her acting, and, like most people, watched her dad in everything he did. He was a part of most people’s childhood–wonder if Theo looks anything like his GF?

Olivia on

Love that color on her! She looks so beautiful.

Erika on

I hope her son is right and it’s a girl!! Baby girls are so much fun!

She looks great! Can’t wait to hear the gender and name!

Holiday on

Wow she is huge! And I am not being mean I am stating a fact. Her stomach is really tall and wide. I wonder when she is due?

What of it? on

She had just looked so beautiful from start to finish of her pregnancy.

I hate the wording of the beginning of this article: “Bryce Dallas Howard put her belly on display.”

Why do celebs always have to be “flaunting” their baby bellies? If you are pregnant, you will have a bump. And since celebs are people, like normal people do they will be out in public, therefore there bump will be too. Does that mean they are “flaunting” or “displaying” it? No.

Julianna on

Is it just me, or it looks like she has been pregnant forever? Nevertheless, she looks beautiful; her skin is glowing and the red looked so nice against her complexion.

MiB on

Meghan, usually I would agree with you (often they are not flaunting their belly, they’re just going to the grocery store, walking on the street, on their way to lunch or yoga or an appointment), but in this case she is actually posing in a way that enhances her belly, so yeh, she is actually putting her belly on display!
