‘OINTB’ Actress Laura Prepon Announces She’s Pregnant

Actress Laura Prepon has announced she’s pregnant and expecting her first child with husband-to-be Ben Foster.

Prepon, who plays Alex Vause in the original Netlfix series Orange Is the New Black, showed off her growing bump at the Sundance Film Festival on Monday, January 23.

The 36-year old attended the event in Park City, Utah alongside her fiancé and revealed the exciting news for the first time to both her fans and the press at the independent film festival.

The brunette was seen by eyewitnesses drinking water and avoiding alcohol while in the IMBd lounge at the event.

She was also spotted enjoying a pizza on Sunday night after the Creative Coalition’s Annual Spotlight Awards, again keeping away from alcohol.

Laura rose to acting fame when she landed the role of Donna Pinciotti in That ’70s Show in 1998, remaining on the sitcom for all eight seasons.

The parents-to-be revealed their engagement on October 4 of last year.

Prepon showed off her diamond engagement ring on the red carpet of The Girl On The Train premiere in L.A, with her portraying Cathy in the mystery thriller.

The lovebirds were first spotted as an item in July 2016 after they spent a romantic break together in Cape May, New Jersey.

Laura has previously had high-profile relationships, dating Christopher Masterson – the brother of her That ’70s Show co-star Danny Masterson – for seven years.

She was then in a relationship with Scott Michael Foster from 2008 to 2015, whom she met on the set of Neighbours.

Despite two previous long-term relationships, this will be the Are You There, Chelsea? star’s first child.

Her fiancé Ben was previously engaged to House of Cards actress Robin Wright.

Prepon and Foster are believed to have met through a mutual friend, but let their chemistry blossom last summer, whilst keeping as much of their relationship out of the public eye as possible.

Congratulations!
