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

Badass, thy name is Gal.

This is Gal Gadot. She's the star of Wonder Woman and a more or less perfect human being. You probably already knew both of those things.

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.

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.

As Gadot herself describes it: “On close-up I looked very much like Wonder Woman. On wide shots I looked very funny, like Wonder Woman pregnant with Kermit the Frog.”

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.
