Megan Fox Reveals ‘Ninja Turtles’ Morning Sickness

Megan Fox has two sons and they’re only 16 months apart. That’s a feat in and of itself, but the 27-year-old mom was in the early stages of her second pregnancy when she began filming “Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtles” with Michael Bay – something the actress admits was not easy.

“I got pregnant with Bodhi two weeks into filming ‘Ninja Turtles,’ which is an action movie and requires a lot of running and jumping and stunts,” she said on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Monday. “So I spent the entire… anyone that’s been pregnant knows your first trimester can be pretty rough and you’re nauseous all day long.

“So I spent the whole shoot basically, the producers would come see me in the morning in the makeup trailer and I would be clinging to a box of saltines and… we kept pickles in the refrigerator for me and I was just constantly on the verge of vomiting and running and screaming,” she continued.

“Nothing’s better than when you’re nauseous to run,” Ellen joked.

“Yeah, running, jumping, fighting,” Megan laughed. “Saying things like, ‘Show me what you got, Shredder!’ Stuff like that, so all the fun things you want to do when you’re pregnant.”

Obviously, the pregnancy was not planned.

“The first one wasn’t planned either,” Megan said, of her first son, Noah, with husband Brian Austin Green. “I mean, we can’t let Brian near me anymore! Every time…”

“I got pregnant with Bodhi two weeks into filming ‘Ninja Turtles,’ which is an action movie and requires a lot of running and jumping and stunts,” she recalled.

DeGeneres interjected, “And running.”

Despite the intense morning sickness she endured, Fox didn’t let them see her sweat.
“(I was) running, jumping, fighting, saying things like, ‘Show me what you got, Shredder!’” she detailed. All the fun things you want to do when you’re pregnant.”

DeGeneres asked the star on Monday, “How are you able to work? What were you doing when [you were pregnant]? Were you shooting the movie?”

Fox explained, “The producers would come see me in the morning in the makeup trailer and I would be clinging to a box of saltines and we had kept pickles in the refrigerator for me. I was just constantly on the verge of vomiting.” The star added that her upcoming role as reporter April O’Neil involves “running, jumping, fighting” and “saying things like, ‘Show me what you got, Shredder!’”
“So clearly it was not planned,” DeGeneres remarked of Fox’s second pregnancy overlapping with filming.
“The first one wasn’t planned either,” Fox said, joking: “I mean, we can’t let Brian near me anymore.”
