BumpWatch: Busy Philipps Debuts Belly (and SAG Nominees!)

Busy Philipps Debuts Belly (and SAG Nominees!)

Busy‘s looking beautiful!

The Cougar Town star, 33, was on hand along with Taye Diggs Wednesday morning to announce the 19th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations at the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles, Calif.

On Monday, Philipps took to Twitter to reveal she is expecting her second child with husband Marc Silverstein.

Despite her Tweet — a picture of a positive pregnancy test — the actress admits she wasn’t quite ready to share the news just yet.

“It was leaked to someone that I was pregnant and they were going to put it online anyway,” Philipps tells Celebuzz.

“I was kind of upset about it and [Marc] was like, ‘You know what? Eff them. Just Tweet it, and then you put it out there and it is what it is.'”

However, when it comes to social media, there’s a line the expectant mama — already mom to daughter Birdie Leigh, 4 — isn’t willing to cross.

“I try to be respectful of my kid because she’s going to be a grown up someday, and she doesn’t need someone google-searching her name and finding pictures of her poop,” Philipps says.

her real name is Elizabeth Phillips, Busy is just her stage name.

Maybe it’s the print kinda hiding it but she looks the same to me. Congratulations busy, it seems like she’s a fun mommy.

Busy Phiipps is all kinds of awesome! I’ve loved her since her Dawson’s Creek days. Hope she has a smooth, healthy pregnancy.

I love Busy’s attitude towards Birdie’s privacy! She doesn’t lock her away but she also doesn’t show her off at every opportunity. It’s a real shame that she couldn’t announce her pregnancy on her own terms!

Thank goodness! I was just wondering what kind of parents would give a child such an ugly & idiotic name.

Kresta on

She was huge when she had her first baby but she managed to lose all the weight she gained.

Congratulations on the pregnancy. That dress, not so much. I am not a fan of that print all.

I’m just glad the head line said belly and not bump!

How awful that she was basically forced to announce her pregnancy before she was ready to! That being said, she looks great!
