The Sydney-born actress and singer Toni Collette is looking forward to motherhood! The singer and conservation ambassador Collette confirmed Monday, she is expecting first baby with her musician hubby Dave Galafassi. The 34-year star is rumored to be 19 weeks pregnant, with a due date in the second week of December.
The duo is thrilled with the news and when asked whether she was pregnant, Collette replied,
Yes I am. We’re very happy. We are completely over the moon.
Collette, who was nominated for an Academy Award in the best supporting actress category for her role in 1999’s supernatural thriller ‘The Sixth Sense,’ coincidentally, has being playing pregnant women in many of her films of late, now she is ready to take these motherhood roles in practicality.
Collette, who is currently in Sydney with her side project, a rock’n’roll band that includes Galafass on drums, said,
It is strange the last three films I’ve done I have been pregnant. I’m just like, what is the universe trying to tell me? But I think everything happens when it’s meant to.
Toni and Dave performed together with their band Toni Collette and The Finish at Live Earth, the global concert series that aimed to raise awareness about global warming yesterday in Sydney.
