Kirsten Dunst Is Pregnant, Expecting First Child With Jesse Plemons (Exclusive)

With two close pals expecting, Kirsten Dunst was “in baby mode,” the then-32-year-old confessed to UK’s Red magazine in 2014, adding, “I think 33 is a good age to have your first baby.”

Her mid-thirties aren’t bad either. A source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly that the 35-year-old actress and fiancé Jesse Plemons are expecting their first child.

And that’s not the only project in the works for Dunst and the Breaking Bad alum, 29. The ex-costars (they started dating in 2016 while playing husband and wife on FX’s Fargo) are slated to wed in Austin next spring. Dunst has already tapped her close pals, Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy, to create her dress. “I can’t imagine not doing it,” Kate told Us at the September 18 Woodshock premiere in L.A. Though her sister noted they hadn’t started working on the piece: “We hopefully will get inspiration and figure it out.”

To hear the actress tell it, the nuptials will be an understated affair. In 2016, she told In Style UK her ideal vows would be “intimate.” Her perfect setting: “Courthouse, dinner party and DJ with friends and family. I’ll treat it like it would be my fortieth birthday.”

Among the lucky invitees: Plemons’ onetime Friday Night Lights costar Zach Gilford. “I’ll definitely be at his wedding,” the star recently told Us. “I’ve met his fiancée and it’s one of those couples that you feel like they are the best versions of themselves when they are around each other.”
