Succession star Sarah Snook is pregnant – with the actress debuting her baby bump at the hit show’s fourth season premiere in NYC on Monday.
The star, 35, who plays Shiv Roy in the series, proudly showed off her growing bump in a black jumpsuit as she prepares to welcome her first child with husband Dave Lawson.
The beauty, who is 32 weeks pregnant, cradled her bump as she posed up a storm at her first public event in a year – pairing her clinging outfit with a shimmering silver jacket.
Her tresses were styled in soft waves and she sported a radiant palette of make-up.
She told ET: ‘It’s exciting! I feel great’ before adding she has ‘like two months’ to go before her due date.

She also confirmed she was pregnant while filming the show’s fourth and final season, saying: ‘I mean, you couldn’t super tell. Because it’s not super big, at least at the moment.’
Sarah proposed to Dave, 45, in October 2020, and the pair married in the backyard of her home in Brooklyn, New York, in February 2021.
‘At the beginning of the pandemic last year, I got locked down in Melbourne with one of my best mates and we fell in love,’ she told Vogue this week.
‘We’ve been friends since 2014, lived together, travelled together, always excited to see each other, but totally platonic.’
Sarah says that the stars aligned and a romance between the pair arose – just like the plot of a film she might star in.
‘We’ve just never been single at the same time. It’s been a ride. There’s so much heartache and sadness in the world, but on a micro personal level, I’ve been very fortunate,’ Snook said.
Sarah added that without the pandemic, the couple might not have ended up together so quickly.
Snook plays the character Siobhan ‘Shiv’ Roy in Succession, which has been a huge hit for HBO.

The series is set within the powerful Roy family, who run a massive media conglomerate, with Shiv and her siblings Roman (Kieran Culkin), Kendall (Jeremy Strong) and Connor (Alan Ruck) all working below their father Logan (Brian Cox).
The cast also includes the likes of Kieran Culkin, Sarah Snook, Hiam Abbass, Nicholas Braun, Peter Friedman, Natalie Gold, Ron Yang, Alan Ruck, Parker Sawyers, Dagmara Domińczyk, Arian Moayed, J. Smith-Cameron, Justine Lupe, David Rasche and Fisher Stevens.
The show has won 13 Emmy Awards so far, including several for Armstrong for writing and drama series honors in 2020 and 2022.
The creator of the hit HBO series Jesse Armstrong hinted that the show’s star Logan Roy will die this season, telling the magazine. ‘You know, there’s a promise in the title of “Succession.” I’ve never thought it could go on forever. The end has always been kind of present in my mind.
‘From Season 2, I’ve been trying to think: Is it the next one, or the one after that, or is it the one after that?’
In January, the cast – including Logan himself, played by Brian Cox – were snapped filming a funeral in New York. But fans have questioned whether the illness-plagued Waystar Royco mogul will himself die.
Armstrong got together with his fellow-writers before they started the writing of season four around November 2021 and proposed the idea of end the series.
‘I sort of said, “Look, I think this maybe should be it. But what do you think?” And we played out various scenarios,’ Armstrong said of the decision to bring the show to its conclusion. He hailed season four’s plotlines as ‘muscular,’ and teased high-drama for the wealthy-but-miserable Roy family.
He explained, ‘We could do a couple of short seasons, or two more seasons. Or we could go on for ages and turn the show into something rather different, and be a more rangy, freewheeling kind of fun show, where there would be good weeks and bad weeks. Or we could do something a bit more muscular and complete, and go out sort of strong. And that was definitely always my preference.’
Armstrong went on to tell the writers, ‘I think this is what we’re doing, but let’s also keep it open.
‘I like operating the writing room by coming in with a sort of proposition, and then being genuinely open to alternative ways of going,’ he shared.
Ultimately the decision to end was solidified through the writing, and then the idea was presented to the cast when they started shooting season four.
‘I said to the cast, “I’m not a hundred per cent sure, but I think this is it.” Because I didn’t want to bulls**t them, either,’ he confessed.
HBO ended up confirming that the fourth season set to premiere March 26 will be its last.
