Thandie Newton announces her pregnancy and shows off a tiny bump

Actress, Thandie Newton has announced that she is expecting a baby with husband Ol Parker! This will be the couple’s third child – a little brother or sister for their two gorgeous girls Ripley (12) and Nico (8). The pregnancy announcement was made as they walked the red carpet at the Toronto Film Festival this weekend, to promote Thandie’s new film – Half of a Yellow Sun.

A spokesperson told US Weekly: “She couldn’t be more happy. You can barely tell she has a bump and she’s been dressing different because of it”.

During the first trimester, most women will hardly show at all, which is usually a good thing as it is common practice to keep your wonderful news fairly quiet to begin with. But once your first trimester is up and you are wanting to share your pregnancy with the world, it can be frustrating if your bump is still barely there. Thandie was in fact spotted in two very different outfits over the weekend, one which concealed her tiny bump and one which showed it off:

Concealing your Tiny Bump

She first appeared at a variety studio in Holt Renfrew (a large Canadian department store) in black trousers and a gorgeous multi-coloured striped blouse which gave absolutely nothing away. This is a fantastic look to disguise a small bump while your pregnancy is still a wonderful secret between you and your partner –  black trousers teamed with heals slim and lengthen your legs, while a skinny vertical stripe on a structured blouse completely conceals the beginnings of a bump. A nice flowing empire line dress would work equally as well, with plenty of gathered fabric skimming your curves.

Flaunting your Tiny Bump

Later she stepped out on the red carpet in a striking Stella McCartney shift dress in black and white, with a beautiful feminine, curve contouring design which showed off just the tiniest hint of a bump. The curvy monochrome design of this form fitting shift dress framed and showcased her barely-there bump perfectly. So if you simply can’t wait to share your news and want the world to see the subtle changes in the early stages of your pregnancy, then a figure hugging dress in simple block colours is the way to go, and a design that frames your belly is ideal.
