Her pregnancy is somewhat of a surprise since the star, 39, had so much difficulty with her first effort to start a family with cameraman hubby Danny Moder, 37. In November 2004, she gave birth to twins Phinnaeus Walter and Hazel Patricia – but only after months of round-the-clock bed rest that followed a scare in which she was rushed to the hospital with false labor.
It’s not known how the Georgia-born beauty’s pregnancy will affect her latest screen projects. Roberts, who commands up to $25 million per movie, is appearing in Mike Nichols’ new flick, “Charlie Wilson’s War,” and has reportedly signed to do “The Friday Night Knitting Club.” But it’s likely she’ll take some time off, as she did when the twins were born. “It’s a joy being domestic. It’s something I want and something that makes me very happy,” she once told an interviewer.
Roberts’ spokeswoman, Marci Engelman, couldn’t be reached for comment
