Wonder Woman is going to be a mommy again! Gal Gadot, who plays Diana Prince in “Batman v. Superman” and the upcoming “Justice League,” revealed on Sunday that she is expecting her second child with husband Yaron Versano.
The Israeli actress made the announcement on Instagram by posting a picture of her and her husband making a heart shape with their hands over her stomach. The post didn’t give any further details about the due date or how far along she is. Judging from Gadot’s lack of baby bump, she’s probably in the early days of pregnancy.
Gadot and Versano, a businessman, welcomed daughter Alma in November 2011. The “Wonder Woman” star has spoken out many times about what it’s like to be a mother and how she tries to raise her daughter while working.
She Feels Guilty: “The Jewish guilt I feel about being a working mom is the hardest thing,” Gadot told Glamour in March. “I’ve gotten better. When Alma was around two, I was really anxious about how to travel with a child, moving her from one country to the other, all the different languages. It was my husband who told me: ‘Gal, think about what kind of a role model you want to be. If you want to show Alma that she can follow her dreams, that's what you should do, and we will figure out the logistics.’”
She Relies On Family: Gadot doesn’t seem to be relying on a nanny to occupy her firstborn while she works. “My mother and my daughter travel with me, so when I’m on the set, my mother will look after Alma and that gives me a lot of comfort,” Gadot told the Mirror in April.
She Plays Role Models: As Wonder Woman, she is a role model to millions of little girls, but the 31-year-old tries to be someone her daughter can look up to in every movie she picks. “When I choose a role, I always think about whether my daughter can get something out of it when she watches the movie later after she’s grown up,” she told Interview in July 2015. “Or even just show her that Mommy’s doing what Mommy loves to do. And therefore, she can do what she loves to do and have a family at the same time. As long as you have your priorities figured out in a healthy way.”
It seems like Gadot already has this working mom gig figured out, so it’s no surprise that her family is growing.
