Amanda Peet Reveals Surprise Baby Bump on Emmys Red Carpet​

A celeb mom debuted quite the accessory on the red carpet at the Emmys: Amanda Peet has another baby bump! At 42, Peet is expecting her third child with husband David Benioff. Her age is no big deal by Hollywood standards ... except she made it one a few years ago.

Back in 2010, after the birth of her second child, Amanda publicly declared she was "too old" to have a third child. She was 38 years old at the time. Of course, her comment didn't sit well with some moms, but she held her own and seemed pretty sure of her decision. What a difference a few years make!

Amanda was ridiculously beautiful -- positively glowing -- at the Emmys last night. Happy and relaxed, she joked about what it's like to be pregnant with her third at her age.

Forty-two and pregnant is quite something. I will be taking these heels off in a minute!

Good for you, Amanda. Sometimes it's impossible to know when you're really done, isn't it, moms? There's something about that time when your youngest is no longer a baby. All of a sudden, we are really vulnerable about changing our minds. No more baby smell? No more kid who can't move if I put him somewhere? No more nuzzling, nursing, nurturing new life? No more pregnancy journals?

Pass the tissues, please.

The decision to stop adding to your family is rarely set in stone. There are so many variables to consider, and some of them come with age. Yay for Amanda for realizing she isn't the same person she once was. Her maturity shows she is definitely ready for number three.

How did you decide you were through having kids?
