Homeland hottie! Morena Baccarin — best known as Nicholas Brody's brave, long-suffering wife Jessica Brody on Showtime's Homeland — made her jaw-dropping post-baby red carpet return outside L.A.'s Shrine Auditorium for the 2014 Screen Actors Guild Awards Saturday, Jan. 18. Nearly three months ago, the Golden Globe-winning actress, 34, gave birth to son Julius Chick, her first child with husband Austin Chick.
The Brazilian-born brunette looked absolutely stunning for her first red carpet since becoming a mom, wearing a purple, slightly sheer Monique Lhuillier that showed off her legs beneath and toned arms. Baccarin joked with E! News' Giuliana Rancic during the pre-show that she "blew up!" during the pregnancy. (Indeed, Baccarin attended awards shows — flaunting a sizable bump beautifully — into the late stages of her third trimester.)
Little Julius, she said, is "doing great, he's smiling, which you really need," Baccarin said. "We're not getting a lot of sleep around the house but that's okay. He's super cute!"
One complaint? Well-meaning folks were very quick to ask when Baccarin might get pregnant again. "The first to ask was a nurse at the hospital," she said. "I thought, I'm going to kill you right now! You need to stop! I can't even think about it."
The SAGs, she added, were a perfect, relatively casual event to return to the cameras. "It feels like at this show everyone is in the mood to party," she aid. "It's our community, and I feel like there's a little less pressure."
