Keri's baggy jumper fuelled pregnancy rumours

While Matthew and Keri spend more time together on set, their relationship seems to be getting stronger. "They are always together and love roaming around New York," a second source told the publication. "Matthew is really in love. They feel they should have always been together."

Keri, who filmed her indie comedy Austenland while expecting daughter Willa, has previously commented on how comfortable she feels when pregnant. "I absolutely loved being voluptuous," she told USA Today. "That's not a word that I have ever had anyone describe me as - voluptuous," she said. "And I will never be voluptuous except when I'm pregnant. It was amazing."
