“Olanna” is Expecting! “Half of a Yellow Sun” Movie Star Thandie Newton is Pregnant with Baby No. 3



Thandie Newton - September 2013 - BellaNaija

Congrats to Thandie!

Half of a Yellow Sun lead actress Thandie Newton, who plays Olanna in the movie adaptation is pregnant with her third child.

At the Toronto International Film Festival Premiere of the movie, the Hollywood actress stepped on the black carpet with her husband, writer, director and producer Ol Parker.

Looking stunning in a black-and-white Stella McCartney dress, the movie star was all smiles at the premiere. The couple who tied the knot in 1998 are parents to daughters Ripley, 13 and Nico, 8½.

If it’s a girl, do you think she’ll name her Olanna or Odenigbo if it’s a boy.

    Congrats to her even though I still think she was a poor casting choice for Olanna. For some of us who have read the book, it is quite a leap to get yourself to watch the film; I still haven’t and probably never will…
