Pregnancy Didn’t Stop These Remarkable Actresses From Staying In Character

Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Pregnancies Were “Shown” In Two Ways

During her nine-year run as Elaine on Seinfeld, actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus got pregnant twice. Thankfully, the character’s unique fashion sense helped hide the first baby bump! Using baggier clothing and props, such as a handbag, they were able to conceal Louis-Dreyfus’ growing tummy. The second go-around was a whole different story, though.


First, Jerry Seinfeld pitched the idea that Elaine gets fat. That didn’t go over well, ending with the actress in tears. And so, in typical Seinfeld fashion, the character walked around with a huge belly, and no one said a word about it!
