Drew Barrymore stepped out at the New York City Ballet 2013 Fall Gala, where she fanned pregnancy rumors on Thursday night.
The 38-year-old actress and her husband Will Kopelman welcomed their first child, Olive, almost a year ago. However, the couple may have news about another child as Barrymore cradled her stomach on the red carpet on Thursday.
Wearing a loose-fitting all-black lace dress, the starlet beamed knowingly at cameras on the red carpet while she protectively covered her stomach with one hand, according to Daily Mail.
Other Hollywood mothers at the NYC Ballet Gala included Natalie Portman, Sarah Jessica Parker, and model Doutzen Kroes.
Although Barrymore has not yet announced a second pregnancy, the actress has admitted she and her husband of two years want more children.
"I was an only child, and it was lonely," the "Big Miracle" star explained to In Style magazine after her daughter was born in September of 2012.
"Some people love it and thrive on independence, but I want my kids to have other kids around," she continued. "Maybe two kids so they can run around life together, roll their eyes at their parents together like Rusty and Audrey Griswold [from National Lampoon's Vacation]. So however that's going to come about, it's gonna happen."
Furthermore, ahead of her daughter's arrival, Barrymore revealed fervent enthusiasm over motherhood.
"I can't wait until I have my children," the actress told Haute Living magazine last year. "I love the idea that they don't have to do something that they have no interest in, that they can do something completely opposite if they want to."
If Barrymore is in fact pregnant with baby number two, she will join a slew of other actresses who are expecting.
"Shameless" actress Shanola Hampton announced this week that she and husband Darn Dukes are expecting their first child in late January.
Moreover, Thandie Newton and her husband are expecting their third child, despite the actress being 40 years old.
Other expectant celebrities include Jennifer Love Hewitt, Gwen Stefani, and Halle Berry, among others.
