Congratulations are in order for Friday Night Lights star Zach Gilford and his wife Kingdom star Kiele Sanchez. The 37-year-old actress made the announcement Sunday at the TCA’s during the panel for her DirecTV series Kingdom.
“I am playing a woman who is pretty detached from the thing that is growing inside of her, and I couldn’t’ be more excited about my pregnancy,” Kiele shared with reporters. “So when I slip into Lisa, I’m at odds with this thing down here.”
“It’s something that I think that she at certain points really question her decision to keep it, which couldn’t be further from my own life,” she said. “So it’s a weird, strange, strange thing, especially when he kicks during a scene, you have to go on as if this thing didn’t just move inside of your body. So it’s bizarre.”
Kiele’s on camera world is mixing with her real-life world in many ways. On Kingdom, she plays a mother of two boys (one son is played by Nick Jonas) and she shared that she will be giving birth to a baby boy in November.
It’s going to be fun to see if the baby has more of his father’s on screen football genes or the spirit of a fighter like his mommy’s character.
Kingdom returns for its second season on DirecTV in October.
