Los Angeles - Looking absolutely gorgeous in a stunning $100,000 blue Valentino gown and priceless diamond teardrop earrings a heavily pregnant Cote de Pablo arrived at the Oscars on Sunday on the arm of long term boyfriend Diego Serrano.
"Is that Gibbs' baby you carrying, Ziva?" a lone voice called out from the throngs of paparazzi lining the red carpet as the delectable Ms de P did her twirl and flashed a brilliant smile.
"Show us her knickers!" Another yelled as the actress beamed beautifully despite hundreds of camera lenses suddenly focusing on her swelling baby bump.
Later at an Après Oscars party the NCIS actress revealed that she is indeed pregnant and that the baby will likely be born in a matter of daze.
Apparently if she has her dates right then Junior could be ready to pop out on Cote's own mother's birthday this Tuesday.
"Yeah, I know," Ms de Pablo, sighed, "that would make it a Pancake Day sprog."
