However, the star has now revealed that the whole charade ended up being a bit of a nightmare for her – and it was all because of her outfit.

Troian, who welcomed her first child with husband Patrick back in October 2018 (opens in new tab), revealed how she was overcome with anxiety surrounding how to hide that she was five-months pregnant, alongside being perplexed at how to pull off a fascinator.

“I had [anxiety] two-fold,’ she told The Daily Telegraph. “One, because I was trying conceal the fact that I was five months pregnant (opens in new tab). I was absolutely positive that it was going to be revealed.”

“But, I also had extreme anxiety about… what are they called? Those hat things? That’s it fascinators,” she continued.

“They look ridiculous unless you’re in the 1930s,” said Troian. “You could get one that is an absolute piece of art, but then are you being too vain and trying to call too much attention to yourself? Or if you get a fascinator that’s very small, are you not going for tradition?

“I’d never needed a fascinator in my life, and here I was trying to walk this tightrope of “don’t go too big, don’t go too small”. It was a nightmare.”

Luckily the star managed to pull off her gorgeous look perfectly!
