This Barbie doll is now transitioning into her Midge stage.

Even though Margot Robbie's character Barbie is no longer her best friend forever, she is still famous for her fashionable maternity look. The Oscar-nominated actress is adding her own unique touch to clothing for pregnant women as she awaits the arrival of her first child with husband Tom Ackerley.

On July 7, the actress was seen wearing a short top and displaying what looked like a baby bump while on vacation with her husband in Lake Como, Italy. People later confirmed from various sources that Robbie is expecting a baby.

E! News has tried to contact the representatives of the couple but has not received a response.

The couple's next phase begins over seven years after they got married in a private ceremony in her home country of Australia. Robbie has always wanted to expand her family with Ackerley.

"When I imagine my life 30 years down the line, I envision a festive Christmas feast surrounded by many children," Robbie shared with Porter during a conversation in 2018. "However, that scenario is definitely not in the cards for me right now. I can say that with absolute certainty."

The couple's romantic tale began over ten years ago when Robbie, aged 34, initially encountered Ackerley, also 34, while working on the set of the film "Suite Française" in 2014 (where she acted alongside Michelle Williams and he worked as the movie's third assistant director). Even though Robbie felt an immediate connection, she believed that her attraction was only felt by her and not reciprocated by Ackerley.

Robbie confessed to Vogue in 2016 that he had always been infatuated with him, but he never believed his feelings would be reciprocated. He would often tell himself not to make things awkward by confessing his feelings. However, when they finally got together, he realized it was meant to be as it all just made perfect sense unlike anything he had experienced before.

For the couple, who got married in 2016, they are not only partners in marriage and soon-to-be parents. Together with their friends Josey McNamara and Sophia Kerr, Robbie and Ackerley manage LuckyChap Entertainment, a company that has produced a number of successful films such as "I, Tonya" and "Barbie," which were both directed by Robbie.

Despite living a hectic lifestyle in Hollywood, she chooses to keep her personal life private. She refers to her husband as a "normie" because of his laid-back approach to fame. During the 2024 Critics Choice Awards, Robbie expressed gratitude for her husband, stating, "I am fortunate to have someone who prefers to stay behind the scenes and is unaffected by the glitz and glamour of celebrity life."

"He is amazing, it's such a blast," she added. "I really enjoy the term 'normie,' yeah, just like all my buddies, they all say, 'What you do is great but it's more enjoyable just hanging out and chatting about different things.' And you're nodding in agreement."
