Liv Tyler Stuns at First Award Show Since Announcing Pregnancy

01/17/2016 at 09:45 PM ET

Liv Tyler knows how to dress up a baby bump.

The Leftovers actress, 38, looked gorgeous in a Cushnie Et Ochs gown with a thigh-high slit at the Critics’ Choice Awards in Santa Barbara, California, on Sunday — her first award show since announcing she is expecting her third child; her second with fiancé David Gardner.

Gardner took to Instagram to send a sweet message of support to Tyler and HBO’s The Leftovers, which is nominated for best drama series.

“Sooooo beautiful,” he wrote. “Good luck tonight at the Critics choice awards…..Baby onboard.”

Tyler, who finished her look with a Jimmy Choo clutch, Nicholas Kirkwood sandals and Neil Lane jewels, reposted the picture to her own Instagram, joking about her “total nerd face.”

Tyler and Gardner are already parents to 11-month-old son Sailor Gene, while the actress is also mom to Milo, her 11-year-old son with ex Royston Langdon, and the sports manager/agent is also dad to son Gray, 8.

Although Tyler was spotted several times wearing a sparkly band on her ring finger, she and Gardner managed to keep their engagement under wraps for almost a year.

The first thing I noticed in the limo picture was no seat belt on. Come on and buckle up! Protect yourself and your baby!

this sounds trite sound trite, but she nailed it! Uber sexy and chic. Melinda , im guessing she took the pic when the car was stationary.

@Frolicking : after reading Melinda’s comment, I went back to the pic thinking just like you, that the car was parked when she took the pic. But as you can’t get a clear shot of the background, the car is in fact moving …😦

Aww she looks great on that dress.

Can People come up with a different adjective than “stun”. It’s all we hear.

While I’m adamant about seat belts, my guess, and it’s just a guess, is that when dressed for the red carpet that few wear seat belts due to creasing/wrinkling. Hope they all buckle up on the way home!

@nozona : I think when you have 2 children and another one on the way, not buckling up your seatbelt, in order to not crease your red-carpet-worthy dress, is the last thing you should have on your mind … Someone clearly has her priorities straight !

It seems the car is moving, she probably didn’t have the belt on, I could be wrong though.

jjj on

I didn’t know she has two kids and I haven’t seen any pictures of her kids before.
