The Bring It On actress first revealed she was expecting her second child when appearing on the April cover of W Magazine in a photo shoot directed by Sofia Coppola.

Along with actresses Elle Fanning and Rashida Jones, who also starred in the photo shoot, Dunst debuted her baby bump in her poses, which were captured by photographer Zoë Ghertner at a home in Beverly Hills.

Joking about her arrangements in the snapshots, Dunst said, "Every shot was on the floor. I was like, 'I can't get up.' I felt like Urkel."

In September 2020, Dunst and Plemons told The New York Times about their relationship, which began in 2016 when they met on the set of Fargo.

The two started dating a year and a half after first meeting on set. "I knew that she would be in my life for a long time," Plemons, 33, said.

In August 2019, Plemons praised Dunst in a heartfelt speech during the actress' Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony, which they brought Ennis to for his first official public event at the time.

"Aside from the brilliant actor you are, I've also had the even greater pleasure of getting to know you as a person outside of work," said Plemons at the time. "Seeing the kind of mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend and cohort you are is why I and all of your friends and everyone else are here today and why we all love you. It's for the incredibly generous and amazing person that you are."
