Handmaid’s Tale star Kate Moss was absolutely glowing during her latest interview with Jimmy Kimmel on Jimmy Kimmel Live! The star is pregnant with her first child, and when asked if she was pregnant or just an incredibly committed method actor, she responded, “A little bit of both.”

He asked how she was feeling and she said she’s been really lucky and it’s been going really well, before she asked Kimmel about his family. He responded he was a dad of four, and then asked her if people had been driving her crazy with all the questions. Moss responded she actually had some questions for the dad of four, and started to ask for advice about what to buy and what to bring to the delivery room.

Kimmel said his wife, Molly McNearney, received the best advice from Bill Murray of all people. Murray told McNearney to bring Christmas lights or beads of some kind to the delivery room and a nightlight. Murray also suggested bringing music and battery-powered candles. Kimmel added that’s because the lighting in the room is Walmart-style lighting for this blessed event that’s going to happen.

Moss laughed and said it all sounded so romantic, the candles, lighting, music. “I think that’s a very good list, I like that,” Moss said.

This all sounds so much better than her dystopian TV drama based on the best-selling novel by Margaret Atwood she’s starring in, where women are forced to bear children. I don’t imagine they’d have the option to have mood lighting and music when they’re delivering their baby.

Thankfully for Moss, her work is not a reality—yet.

PEOPLE reported, during the show’s season 5 finale FYC event in Los Angeles back in November 2022, Moss told the publication it was “horrifying that the show has only become more relevant since its debut. “It’s awful, It’s way more than troubling,” she said, adding that the show is “the most fulfilling, creative experience of my life.”
