Alexandra Daddario Announces She Is Expecting Her First Child

Alexandra Daddario has announced that she is expecting her first child with her husband of two years, Andrew Form. The 38-year-old American actress shared the joyous news with Vogue magazine, revealing that she has been experiencing severe morning sickness while filming the show “Mayfair Witches.” This prompted her to share the news publicly. “By week five, I was like, there’s no way I’m going to be able to hide this,” she told the publication.

Daddario’s announcement comes after a difficult journey to motherhood. She candidly shared that she had previously experienced a pregnancy loss, describing it as “very, very painful.” “It’s long and complicated, so I don’t want to be too specific,” she added. “Those kinds of losses and trauma are very hard to explain unless you’ve been through them.”

Despite the challenges, Daddario expressed her excitement about the pregnancy. In a photoshoot for Vogue, the “Baywatch” and “Percy Jackson” star glowed as she showcased her baby bump, which she had previously hidden under baggy clothes. Daddario and Form, a 55-year-old movie producer, married in 2022. Form was previously married to “Fast and Furious” star Jordana Brewster, with whom he shares two children.

Daddario shared her pregnancy news on Instagram, posting photos from the Vogue shoot. In one image, she is seen sitting cross-legged on a kitchen island, sipping tea with her shirt unbuttoned to reveal her baby bump. The caption read, “Congratulations are in order for @alexandradaddario! The star is expecting her first child with her husband, film producer Andrew Form — and is finally ready to talk about it.”

The actress also joked in her Instagram caption, “Excited for my child to go to pre-school with Margot Robbie and Hailey Bieber’s kids,” referencing the fact that both Robbie and Bieber are also expecting. Fellow actress Sarah Hyland commented, “ALEXXXXX!!!” expressing her excitement for Daddario.

Daddario and Form’s relationship began during the COVID-19 pandemic. They met by chance while walking in New York City and quickly hit it off. Daddario made their relationship public in May 2021 with a black-and-white photo of the couple on Instagram. They got engaged later that year and tied the knot in New Orleans in June 2022.

Form is a well-known film producer, having worked on movies like “A Quiet Place,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” and “The Purge.” He co-founded the production company Platinum Dunes with Michael Bay and Brad Fuller. Before his relationship with Daddario, Form was married to Jordana Brewster for 13 years. They share two sons, Rowan and Julian.

Daddario has embraced her pregnancy, no longer hiding her baby bump under baggy clothes. “I’m finally embracing it,” she said. “I can show it off.” She also shared that her co-stars on “Mayfair Witches” were very understanding about her morning sickness. “I have wonderful co-stars who have kids, and everyone was very understanding about making out with a nauseous, vomiting girl,” she said.

The actress’s journey to motherhood has been filled with ups and downs, but she is now overjoyed to be expecting her first child. “I feel like now that I’m pregnant and it’s all successful and everything’s healthy, I shouldn’t complain,” she said, her smile wavering. “Well, I had been pregnant,” she continued before trailing off. “I had loss.”

Daddario’s announcement has been met with an outpouring of support from fans and fellow celebrities. Her candidness about her previous pregnancy loss has resonated with many, shedding light on the often unspoken challenges of motherhood.

As Daddario prepares to welcome her first child, she continues to work on her acting projects. She was recently seen filming the second season of “Mayfair Witches,” a gothic drama based on a novel series by Anne Rice. The show features Daddario as Rowan, a surgeon who discovers she is descended from a coven of witches and has inherited their powers.

Daddario and Form’s love story has been a whirlwind, from their chance meeting during the pandemic to their engagement and wedding. Now, they are preparing to embark on the next chapter of their lives as parents. The couple’s journey has been filled with love, loss, and joy, and they are excited to welcome their new addition to the family.
