‘Grey’s Anatomy’s’ Camilla Luddington Shares a Relatable Quarantine Checklist on Instagram
Camilla Luddington of Grey’s Anatomy is spending her quarantine time with husband Matthew Alan and 3-year-old daughter Hayden. Expecting her second child with Alan, the actress is trying to fill her days with productive activities while keeping her toddler entertained and managing all that comes along with pregnancy.
Always active on social media, the Grey’s star recently shared a checklist of her daily goings-on at home.
‘Grey’s’ star posts her pregnancy with princess help
Portraying Dr. Jo Karev on the show since 2012, Luddington announced her second pregnancy with a royal flair this time around, posting a pic of herself with Disney’s Cinderella. “Me: ‘I’m just gonna do a super casual pregnancy announcement.’ Also me: ‘I NEED PRINCESSES!!!!!!” the Grey’s actress wrote on Instagram last month. “Okay so… Matt and I are so happy to fiiiiinally post after months of “hiding” that i am pregnant! We are beyond excited to add to our little family and give Hayden a sibling.”
Though Luddington often shares events and details of her life on social media, the TV doc revealed that she was absent online for a bit due to the physical offshoots brought on by pregnancy.
“Yes, I’ve been away a lot from social media the past few months because OMGGGG the exhaustion and OMGGGGGG the morning (read: alllllll day) sickness,” Luddington wrote. “Have I been 🤮 mid filming at work? Yep! Oh the glamor of growing new humans 🤣. But in all seriousness, we feel so lucky and I can’t wait to bring you guys along for the remaining months of this baby #2 journey!!”
Camilla Luddington’s checklist during quarantine
Like the majority of the country practicing social distancing during the coronavirus crisis, Luddington shared some of her daily activities and physical challenges while being pregnant in quarantine with her active 3-year-old.
“Tired: ✅ Growing a human: ✅ Running around after another human: ✅” she listed on Instagram. “Looking up baking recipes & never actually making anything: ✅ Wearing a bun for 72726 days: ✅”
The Grey’s star also noted the worrisome circumstances surrounding the quarantine and sent her followers some well wishes. “Keeping daily anxiety in check as best I can: ✅ Taking this s*** hour by hour: ✅✅✅
#saferathome : ✅✅✅✅✅✅✅” Luddington posted.
“❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ thinking of you all and so much love to you and your families.”
Keeping her pregnancy under wraps on ‘Grey’s’
Viewers of Grey’s began to suspect Luddington was expecting again due to her continual scenes in her lab coat or being filmed at certain angles. When the actress was pregnant with her first child, she revealed that it was a challenge not to show her growing baby some maternal affection.
“My character on the show, as of right now, is not pregnant, so I have to make sure I don’t rub my belly on camera,” she told Parents in 2017. “When I start rubbing, which I do mindlessly, the director points to her belly, and I know to stop.”
The television doctor also shared that unlike other actresses who portray characters sporting the latest fashions, she is more limited due to Jo’s daily attire.
“There’s only so much you can do in scrubs, aside from carry an iPad,” she said during her first pregnancy. “At some point, they’re going to need computer-generated imagery to fake things, and if they do, I’ve already asked them to give me amazing six-pack abs!”
Fans are eagerly awaiting for Luddington’s upcoming baby announcement post!
