Yvonne Strahovski plays an infertile woman in the web television series The Handmaid’s Tale, but in reality, the 35-year-old is pregnant and expecting her first child together with her husband her husband, Tim Loden.

The couple announced Yvonne's pregnancy earlier in May, with a beautiful photo of the reality star showing off her growing baby bump in a red maxi dress.

During a recent appearance on The Panel show on Wednesday, May 30, Yvonne revealed that she has been experiencing a "gross" pregnancy side effect.

The Australian star, who is due in September, said,

This is really gross but I had excessive saliva so I had to carry a spittoon around with me at all times, which is horrendous.

She also opened up about why she hid her baby bump while shooting episodes of the Hulu dystopian series.

She said,

My first trimester was episode nine through to the end of The Handmaid’s Tale. That’s why it got tricky. In the end I was just over hiding it so I said, ‘you know what, I’m pregnant.’

Yvonne and Tim married - after more than six years of dating - in a secret wedding ceremony in Northern California in the summer of 2017.

At the 2017 Emmy Awards in Los Angelas, the Chuck alum opened up that she was already married to Tim in September.

On the red carpet of the event at the time, she told E! News,

We ended up jumping in the lake in our suit and gown, just to cool down,. It was ridiculously hot. But we had a great time.

She added, "We all made it through and did some dancing. It was fantastic".

Yvonne previously dated journalist Matt Doren and screenwriter Josh Schwartz.
