The Marie Antoinette actress is expecting her second baby with her fiance Jesse Plemons. The 38-year-old star appeared on W Magazine’s Directors Issue, alongside Elle Fanning and Rashida Jones. 

Kirsten Dunst and her partner are all set to become parents for a second time. The couple has been together since 2016 and shares a 2-year-old son, Ennis. Dunst revealed the good news in a chic W Mag fashion editorial, directed by her long-time friend, Sofia Coppola.

Dunst Is Expecting Baby Number 2 

Dunst and Plemmons are expecting again, and the news was revealed in the cover shoot for W Magazine. The pregnant Jumanji actress appeared in the editorial wearing long and flowing dresses, showing off her baby bump. 

The cover image revealed Dunst sitting on a bed, wearing a white Rodarte gown created by designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy. Earlier in 2018, the actress announced her first pregnancy by revealing her baby bump in Rodarte’s fall lookbook. 

“Every shot was on the floor. I was like, ‘I can’t get up.’ I felt like Urkel.” 

shared Dunst. 

Dunst & Plemons’ Relationship 

Dunst and Plemons met in 2016 while working on the set of Fargo. The duo dated for more than a year, sharing a strong bond through work and staying late together for rehearsals and shoots. 

The Fargo actors took their romance to the next level by getting engaged in January 2017. In May 2018, the couple was blessed with their first child, a baby boy named Ennis Howard Plemons.

“[I] knew he was going to be a soulmate. He’s my favorite actor–the best I’ve ever worked with. I just knew he would be in my life forever. I didn’t know what capacity that would be at the time. When the show was over, I just missed him terribly. We didn’t get together until a year later. We were both smart enough that we were wondering if the connection was just because we were working together. But it was real.” 

shared Dunst in August 2019 with PorterEdit about meeting Plemons. 

Dunst & Coppola’s Friendship 

Dunst and Coppola’s friendship goes back all the way to the early 2000s. The two worked together on The Virgin Suicides (1999), Marie Antoinette (2006), and the Beguiled (2017). 

Coppola picked her closest collaborators for the W Magazine Directors Issue Volume 2. Coppola first met Dunst when she was 16 while directing the film, The Virgin Suicides, and the two have been close ever since. 

“It’s just so beautiful to have that kind of friendship where you’ve seen each other have children. There are few collaborations, to be honest, where it lasts, where someone knows you that long that’s not your family.” 

said Dunst regarding her relationship with 49-year-old Coppola.
