Covert Affairs star Kari Matchett is pregnant with her first child, and her due date is actually next month. Kudos to her for keeping her pregnancy under wraps for so long, and especially in this day and age of media attention.
Kari was present at the USA Network's Upfronts in NYC and she told reporters, "I’m due in just over a month. I don’t know if it’s a boy or girl, but the names are picked out.” When asked how she chose the names, she added, "They just come to me, but they have a familial element to them. People of the past, but also mixing traditional with what I love.”
She also talks about not having enough time to set up a nursery, explaining, "I’ve been working my ass off. I have a hiatus at the beginning of June, so everything will happen then — hopefully I don’t go into labor early!” Despite the fact that she's been working throughout most of her pregnancy, Kari's not one to complain, simply saying, "“I've been getting a little more tired in the third trimester now, but it’s been a very easy pregnancy. I have no complaints."
Kari plays high-ranking CIA agent Joan Campbell in the hit show 'Covert Affairs', which has also been renewed by the network for another season. Hopefully, Kari will have plenty of rest after her pregnancy before she has to return to work.
