‘Handmaids Tale’ Star Yvonne Strahovski Had a ‘Gross’ Side Effect While Trying to Hide Her Pregnancy On Set

Yvonne Strahovski isn’t afraid to talk about the ups and downs of hiding her pregnancy while filming The Handmaid’s Tale.

The actress, who is due in September, recently appeared on the Australian talk show The Panel and revealed that she had a hard time keeping the pregnancy a secret due to a “gross” side effect.

She said, “This is really gross but I had excessive saliva so I had to carry a spittoon around with me at all times, which is horrendous.” Welcome to motherhood.

Strahovski admitted that it forced her to drop the baby bomb early on, adding, “My first trimester was episode nine through to the end of The Handmaid’s Tale. That’s why it got tricky. In the end I was just over hiding it, so I said, ‘you know what, I’m pregnant.’”

Take that, Gilead. The next episode of The Handmaid’s Tale will hit Hulu on Wednesday, June 6.
