Majandra Delfino: Men Hit on Me Constantly – When I’m Pregnant

When Majandra Delfino was pregnant with her daughter, ABC cast the former Roswell star in a most unusual role.

“I did this pilot, The Family Trap, with Mandy Moore and I played a drunk. I was eight months pregnant,” Delfino tells PEOPLE with a laugh.

“They did such a good job of hiding it and it was really interesting — I had to be this waistoid and all the while had this baby inside of me kicking. It was just so funny,” she recalls.

Now seven months pregnant with her second child, the actress, 32, is starring on the upcoming CBS sitcom Friends with Better Lives — a role that mirrors her real life as an expectant mom.

“When I found out and called [the producers] with the news, they were so excited. They were like, ‘Okay, we’ll just make your character pregnant,'” Delfino says. “It’s going to be all crazy couples stuff that happens when you’re expecting, so it should be really funny.”

But Delfino jokes that not everyone will be laughing off-screen. “I feel so bad for everyone at work because I’m [the] pregnant girl,” she shares. “I’m the person who’s like, ‘No guys, I really feel like my character should be sitting in this scene.’ ”

Delfino — mom to 15-month-old daughter Cecilia Delphine — says she and husband David Walton, 34, have yet to find out the sex of their second child — and don’t plan to until the delivery.

“We’re going to wait and let this one be a surprise,” she reveals. “Old school — where they’re like, ‘It’s a girl!’ and the doctor gets to have his moment in the spotlight.”

During her first pregnancy, Delfino says she had to know the sex of her baby. So what’s changed? “Cecilia set the tone of it being such a pleasant experience, that I’m like, ‘I don’t even care what it is, either way it’s a party!’ It’s just more exciting to have no idea.”

Still, she suspects it could be another girl. “My husband’s got so many sisters that we feel it’s in his genetics to just make girls,” says Delfino, who admits she’d be happy with either scenario.

From her first pregnancy to her second, there’s one thing that’s stayed the same throughout: Guys hit on her more when she’s sporting a bump.

“It’s the most amazing thing,” Delfino says. “A guy came up to me, had a full conversation — could totally see that I was pregnant — and then he asked me for my number to come back sometime and grab coffee. This guy was 6’2, totally gorgeous actor-y looks. I really thought I was on Candid Camera. I was like, ‘This has got to be a joke.'”

But it’s familiar territory for Delfino, who says the same thing happened when she was expecting Cecilia.

“For whatever reason, for my first pregnancy, I looked so much better than I have ever looked. It did wonders to my skin and hair. It was amazing,” she says. “These guys were either blatantly hitting on me or going out of their way to say, ‘I’d just like to tell you — you look gorgeous.’ And hot guys! I thought, ‘This is so crazy. I’ve never had this amount of attention.'”

Jokes Delfino, “And during the daytime — with no alcohol. There was nothing that would make someone say he was not thinking straight.”

She is so cocky!

LOL, she’s clearly joking.

Love her and interested in the new show! Wondered how they were going to handle it.

Don’t know who she is – don’t care after this article. Yes, she is just so desirable – whatever! Pregnant or not I can’t imagine that happening.

“I had to be this waistoid and all the while had this baby inside of me kicking. It was just so funny”…No I don’t find that funny at all. At 7 months pregnant I see women drinking and smoking and am disgusted. It’s never, ever funny when you know sometimes it’s true!

@surf city I think you missed her point. It wasn’t that drinking and smoking are funny to do while pregnant or that it’s funny to see a pregnant woman doing those things but more that it was a strange occurrence since that is very much taboo and it’s something she would never do. It’s like if she said ‘since I’m so straight-laced, it was so funny to play a bumbling alcoholic and drug addict…so very far from the norm’. So chill out

She’s obviously being super sarcastic. Some of you need a sense of humor.

Why would she be joking about that? Alot of guys find pregnant woman attractive. I don’t think it’s a perversion thing. It’s probably pheramones, hormones (women with peaking estrogen levels attract men more) and a bit pyschological – the whole motherly nurturing thing. And some single guys probably really want to be married with kids, and they’re maybe attracted to that.

Weirdos, right? Happened to me when I was preggers, too. They are like, “I know what you did to get pregnant”. Sickos.

To Surf City…she wasn’t supposed to be pregnant in the movie which is why she said “They did such a good job of hiding it and it was really interesting.” If her character was supposed to be pregnant in the movie and still carrying on with such disgusting behavior, then I would agree with you, it wouldn’t be funny.

I see a whole lot of people hating Majandra here but I absolutely adore her!! She is so funny, adorable and talented! Congrats on baby #2!! 🙂

Majandra is a hoot! I enjoy her on twitter. She said her husband told her the reason men hit on her when she’s pregnant is because her lips and breasts are bigger. lol
