Mary-Louise Parker was dumped by her longtime boyfriend, actor Billy Crudup, in 2003. Two important factors made this split hard to swallow: not only did Billy leave the actress for Claire Danes (whom he met on the set of Stage Beauty that year), but Mary-Louise was also seven months pregnant with the couple's child at the time. Rude.
Despite the sketchiness surrounding her breakup, Mary-Louise recovered in a big way; she gave birth to her son William, and starred in HBO's adaptation of the Tony-winning play Angels in America. In 2004, she took home the best supporting actress awards at both the Emmys and the Golden Globes for her role, and gave a funny, heartfelt acceptance speech at the ceremony, saying, "[Actress] Janel Moloney just told me she would pay me $1,000 if I thanked my newborn son for my boobs looking so good in this dress. So, get out your checkbook. William Atticus Parker, thank you so much from your mother.''
If her superhot postbaby moment wasn't enough, Mary-Louise then went on to become one of the most famous MILFs in history on Showtime's Weeds.
