Katie Finneran landed Annie role seven months pregnant

The Tony Award winner and her husband Darren Goldstein announced they were expecting a second child in December (11), however, the 41 year old refused to let her bulging belly get in the way of her dream – taking the stage in one of her favourite musicals.

In the spring, Finneran (12) put on her best dress and donned a pair of high heels to win the part of evil orphanage manager Miss Hannigan, and Annie director James Lapine insists she nailed it.

He tells New York Magazine, “It was pretty hilarious. She kind of knocked our socks off. She’d really done her homework.”

Finneran gave birth to a baby boy this summer (12), but she has wasted no time in getting back on her feet – her first performance is set for 3 October (12).

Finneran is already a mother to one-year-old Ty Michael.
