Kirsten Dunst has made her red carpet return at the 2018 Emmys!

This is the first major red carpet event the 36-year-old Bring It On actress has attended since giving birth to her and beau Jesse Plemons' son, Ennis Howard Plemons, in May. Dunst, wearing a gorgeous royal blue Schiaparelli dress, was joined at the event by Plemons, who is nominated at the award show for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie for his work in the Black Mirror.

After months of speculation, Kirsten confirmed her pregnancy in Jan. 2018—without saying a word!—by cradling her baby bump in a series of photos for Rodarte's look book.

The actress' pregnancy confirmation came exactly a year after her romance with Plemons was revealed. E! News confirmed back in Jan. 2017 that the former Fargo co-stars were engaged. The duo first sparked romance rumors in the spring of 2016 when they were spotted kissing.

In May 2017, Dunst opened up about her personal life, sharing that she was ready to have kids.

"I'm at a stage in my life where I'm like, I've been working since I was 3. It's time to have babies and chill," she told Marie Claire U.K. "You know what I mean?"

She went on to share, "I wasn't one of those 'I need a baby!' people until my goddaughter was born. I love her so much. That love is just like...you can't experience that unless you have a kid. I put her to bed last night and she woke up this morning and said to her mom, 'Where's Kiki?' I just love that love. That's what I want."

Dunst was previously nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or a Movie at the 2016 Emmys for her work in Fargo.
