Expectant actress Jennifer Connelly suffered a shaky start to her pregnancy - she has endured crippling bouts of nausea and sickness.
The Beautiful Mind star announced last month (Dec10) she is expecting her second child with husband Paul Bettany.
She appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman looking radiant earlier this week (begs03Jan11), but revealed she had endured a tough three-month period of cravings and sickness.
She said, "I’m feeling great - now. The first three months were very sketchy. You know like you have your cell phone and you have to stand in one spot... it was like that with nausea.
“I had to stand in one spot, which happened to be in front of my refrigerator, which was open with me dipping pretzels in cream cheese and stuffing them in my mouth."
Connelly and Bettany are parents to seven-year-old Stellan and the actress is also mum to 13-year-old son Kai from a previous relationship.
