There is so much to love about this photo. Meryl Streep's mom, Mary, carefully guiding her footsteps. Meryl's stunning, shampoo-ad hair. The belted satin dress. The photo was taken in 1979, when she was pregnant with her son, Henry Gummer. It was the same year she acted in Manhattan and Kramer vs Kramer, the latter of which coincided with part of her pregnancy.
A few years later, she picked up the 1982 Best Actress Oscar for Sophie's Choice while pregnant with daughter Mary Willa Gummer, who now goes by the stagename Mamie. Isn't the look on her face so sweet?
