The first-time mom, 33, and the show’s producers found a variety of ways to cover up her growing belly in the new trailer for season four. Bilson often wore baggy clothing in her scenes, cooked behind a kitchen counter, and even stood next to a conveniently large stereo while her character Dr. Zoe Hart tried to woo (and seduce!) love interest Wade Kinsella (Wilson Bethel) with some karaoke.
