Anna Faris, was that really a baby bump you were flashing at “The Dictator” premiere in London on Thursday?

Well, OK, we’ll go along with it if you say so – especially after you did say so when you let the world know Wednesday that you’re pregnant.

Faris, 35, is expecting her first child with husband Chris Pratt, 32, of “Parks and Recreation” fame, her rep confirmed to Us Weekly, citing a fall due date. The couple tied the knot in Bali in July 2009; it was a second marriage for Faris, who divorced actor Ben Indra in 2007.

Audiences can see Faris on-screen alongside Sacha Baron Cohen when “The Dictator” opens in theaters Wednesday. Working with Cohen on the film was “weird,” the actress told The Times recently at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, where she was named 2012 comedy star of the year.

“You definitely know when he's on set. It’s like, ‘Oh, OK, he's here now,’” she said. “He's incredibly kind, but he was in character most of the time.... It is really weird.”

Cohen, Faris said, would answer only when addressed as “supreme leader.”

Hey now – that might be a fun trick to teach the baby. "Mom" has been done to death, no?
