Gal Gadot Was Pregnant While Shooting "Wonder Woman," Just In Case You Needed Another Reason To Be Obsessed

Badass, thy name is Gal.

But here's an impressive little fact you might have missed: While shooting some parts of Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot was FIVE MONTHS PREGNANT.

YUP. When Wonder Woman went into reshoots last winter, ya gal Gal was just a few months away from giving birth to her daughter, Maya.

According to the film's director, Patty Jenkins, Gadot didn't miss a beat: “She’s pregnant during part of the movie, in a suit out in a field in the freezing cold in others,” Jenkins told Entertainment Weekly back in April. “There are so many things we asked her to do: Now do it on one foot. Now shout while you’re doing it. Now it’s raining in the freezing cold and you’ve lost your voice, go. Every day it was a hilarious gauntlet and she would do it.”

As for her pregnant belly? Nothing a little ~Hollywood magic~ couldn't hide. The production team cut a large hole in the front of her costume, and covered her stomach with a bright green cloth. Basically, they turned her belly into a green screen.


So, just to recap: Not only did Godot spend her year kicking superhero ass and shattering box office records, she also brought a human into the world while doing it.
