She went on to say, “I’ve been really excited about what I’m doing with my life these days. I’ve been living in Boston. I’m about to be a senior in college. I’m studying holistic healing and addiction and trauma. And I’m newly married and I’m just so excited about this next chapter in my life. You know, I’ve been acting since I was 9 years old and I’m sort of finding these new things that I’m really excited about. It’s been a big year, but a great year.”

The couple posed for pics at a Mapplethorpe screening that day, and the Bring It On actress’ baby bump was on display in a black dress.

Since the announcement, Dushku continued showing off her budding belly on social media from mirror selfies to baseball game pics and more.

Dushku and the Intercontinental Real Estate Corporation CEO, 55, wed in their Boston hometown one year after announcing that they were engaged. Their ceremony was in a courtyard outside the Boston Public Library.
