Her little baby was laying on a pillow in front of her as they rested on a light gray chair.

Ilana was makeup free and with her hair up in a messy top knot.

Followers Kelly Ripa, Chelsea Handler, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Christy Turlington hit the like button. 

Glazer revealed in March via Entertainment Weekly that she was with child.

The star showed off her budding bump in several stunning portraits and talked about her new film, False Positive.

Though the thriller, which follows one woman’s unsettling experiences with IVF, was never planned to happen alongside her pregnancy, Ilana called the coincidence ‘eerie and cosmically funny.’

‘This was not supposed to happen this way, but it’s just so eerie and cosmically funny that it has,’ star/screenwriter Glazer said about being pregnant for the movie’s June 25th release on Hulu.

‘I’m lucky; I’m in control, unlike our protagonist. I don’t feel like I’m having the rug pulled out from under me in any way.’

And Ilana said she was lucky to have an amazing support system to rely on, not ‘afraid to ask a billion questions’ to her friends and family with kids. 

‘There are certain trends in society of how pregnancy should look — the “shoulda coulda wouldas” that are put on women all the time but are so amplified in pregnancy.

‘I’m specifically seeking out the most spiritually healthy and welcoming experience,’ she went on.  

Ilana explained how she sees False Positive – which also stars Justin Theroux and Pierce Brosnan – as a way to explore the fear and anxiety women deal with during pregnancy and birth, saying the piece is partly ‘about how the patriarchy is expressed through medicine.’

The politically-active star told EW: ‘The process of birth is so traumatic and painful, and yet it’s the most miraculous, surreal, real thing. 

‘It’s like this perfect canvas for the paradox that is our country.’

Ilana and scientist husband David celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary this past Sunday.

Though the couple keep their relationship private, the Rough Night actress boasted about her love on Instagram last month, sharing a shot of David with the caption ‘my partner for life.’

In 2014, The New Yorker described Rooklin as ‘a scientist doing postdoctoral work in molecular modelling at N.Y.U.’ and ‘A trim clean-cut white man in his thirties.’
