Less than two months after announcing she was expecting her third child, Katherine Heigl is already in full bump camouflage mode.

Heigl and her husband, singer Josh Kelly, are already parents to two adopted daughters, Naleigh, 7, and Adelaide, 4, but her current pregnancy—a boy—will be the actress's first biological child. Although motherhood is nothing new for the 37-year-old, she recently admitted to People that disguising her growing baby bump during filming on her upcoming CBS legal drama Doubt, has turned out to be a surprisingly challenging effort for her and the show's crew.

"We're working really hard to try to hide [my pregnancy], and it's a challenge," she said of getting into character for her non-pregnant role. "Because every day my body changes a little bit more."

"We started out with really high hopes of like, fitted, pencil skirts, and those really great Victoria Beckham dresses, and that became impossible pretty quickly," she went on to say. "So now it's a lot of big coats. It's either a purse, a jacket. I think I should start carrying a big plant around, honestly—just to shake things up."

Humor aside, we'd have to say Heigl is doing a fantastic job of showing off her burgeoning bump off the set.
