Former “Sopranos” star Jamie-Lynn Sigler is pregnant with her first baby and tells People, after recently being photographed sporting a white bikini in Myrtle Beach, SC, that now is not only a good time to wear a bikini, it’s the best time.
“I would probably not be caught in a bikini otherwise, but when you’re pregnant, it is what it is. However your body’s carrying is how your body’s carrying,” says Sigler, as she hosts a baby shower in New York City Wednesday (June 12), benefitting children’s charity Baby Buggy (pictured above).
Sigler also says that she and fiance Cutter Dykstra, a minor league baseball player, are getting more and more excited about the impending arrival of their bundle of joy.
“I think as he feels him move and kick it becomes more real. We have a couple of names we’re toying with. We’ll call him one name one week and one name another week. I think we have our favorite, but you never know. We could change our minds when we meet him,” says Sigler.
She also says she has an amazing support group of friends who have all recently given birth — fellow actresses Beverley Mitchell, Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Joanna Garcia Swisher.
“My best girlfriend Joanna just had her baby a couple weeks ago and she talked me through her entire [birth] so I know everything that happened — the good, the bad, the ugly and so I’ve got all the pointers,” says Sigler. “She’ll probably be there when I give birth so it’s been nice to have her go through it and get to experience it with her.”
