While pregnant celebrities may make having a baby look like a breeze, Morena Baccarin is letting us all in on a little secret—it's far from glamorous. 

Though the rich and famous look flawless with their perfect baby bumps, couture maternity wear and gleaming faces, the 36-year-old Gotham actress is pulling back the curtain on the shiny Hollywood veneer.

Pregnant for the second time and expecting her first child with boyfriend and co-star Benjamin McKenzie, the brunette beauty revealed she's not exactly in the mood to be strutting a red carpet in a gown. 

"[I feel] like crap, like I want to just sleep all day and not be in a dress all day and heels," she told E! News. "My water could break right now."

What a relief—thanks Morena for bringing our expectations about expecting back down to earth.

The exhausted mom also dished on an activity equally tiring—her sex scenes with Ryan Reynolds for the upcoming comic book antihero saga Deadpool. 

As the eccentric superhero's seductive girlfriend Vanessa, Baccarin spent an entire day shooting in the sheets. 

"We just banged them all out, no pun intended," she told E! News on the red carpet of the film's fan screening. "At the end of the day, Ryan and I were very comfortable with each other."

With Reynolds as her beau on camera and McKenzie in real life, we have to admit we're just a bit envious of this very lucky lady.
