The Cleansing Hour
Heather Morris has gone from Glee to eeeek! in no time.
E! News just caught up with the pregnant 28-year-old actress to chat about motherhood, baby No. 2 and her upcoming project, the horror short "The Cleansing Hour."
Which just sounds terrifying, doesn't it?
First up, before son Elijah becomes a big brother, Morris and hubby Taylor Hubbell's firstborn will celebrate a big birthday.
Elijah, who "loves trucks, tractors, and counting," turns 2 on Sept. 28! To celebrate the big milestone, the family is heading to New York. "We're really excited! We actually fly there before he's 2, so he flies for free," Miller dished. "On our way back, we had to pay for a ticket, because [then] he's actually 2."
Who isn't frustrated by the airlines these days?!
Meanwhile, Morris is taking care of Elijah, who she describes as super-active and chatty, and keeping busy with work.
"Working moms are the best kind!" she gushed. "They're so thankful and humble to have time with their children," and "when they get home, they still make time and do wonderful activities with their kids." She advises that it's a must to "find time to do fun things."
She and Taylor and Elijah have been doing "a lot of swimming" this summer, as well as visiting museums and taking trips to the beach. "Creating that quality time is important," she said.
The couple haven't found out the sex of baby No. 2 just yet, but Morris excitedly tells E! they'll be finding out this week.
Moreover, pregnancy hasn't stopped the ever-active Morris from staying in great shape. She's "going to the gym and working out twice a week, doing Pilates once a week." She hasn't had any crazy cravings, but loves spicy things right now, especially "jalapeños and really hot, hot sauce from a Mexican restaurant."
As far as names for their new addition, they haven't settled on one just yet: "We're so indecisive, it takes us forever!" Morris says. The last time she was pregnant, "we wrote on a piece of paper at a restaurant, we came up with multiple names we liked, and we just kind of stuck with one."
On the work front, Morris' intends to show fans a different range in her latest project, The Cleansing Hour. The short film centers on a webcast that streams exorcisms live. The exorcisms are elaborately planned to fool the audience into believing they are real; however, Morris will be playing someone who really is possessed and actually needs an exorcism, unwittingly turning the website into the real deal.
The short film project is currently raising dough on Kickstarter, and funding for the film ends in 8 days. "I'm just excited to see the story line come to life and the final product, the experience on set, is going to be great," Morris says.
