Kirsten is due to welcome her first child with fiancé Jesse Plemons. The couple met on the set of Fargo, with the actress announcing that she was engaged to Jesse in January last year, just seven months after they went public with their romance. Last year, Kirsten revealed she was ready to become a mother. "I wasn’t one of those 'I need a baby!' people until my goddaughter was born," she told Marie Claire. "I love her so much. That love is just like… you can't experience that unless you have a kid." She added: "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."
