The mum-to-be showed off her growing baby bump during the Television Critics Association press conference on Sunday (09Aug15), when she was with her fellow castmates of U.S. fighting drama Kingdom, and discussed the oddity of being pregnant with a baby boy while also portraying a pregnant character on TV.

She said, "I am playing a woman who is pretty detached from the thing that's growing inside her, and I couldn't be more excited about my pregnancy. So when I slip into (her character) Lisa, I'm at odds with this thing down here. It's something that I think that she at certain points really questions her decision to keep it, which couldn't be further from my own life.

"So it's a weird, strange, strange thing, especially when he kicks during a scene, you have to go on as if this thing didn't just move inside your body. So it's bizarre."

Sanchez, who is due in November (15), and former Friday Night Lights star Gilford wed in 2012.
