She's known as one of Hollywood's most glamorous and statuesque stars, but Uma Thurman certainly let her guard down during a luxury cruise in Corsica.

The actress caught onlookers by surprise as she revealed a rather pronounced tummy while frolicking aboard a yacht in a skimpy bikini with her new fiancé Arpad 'Arki' Busson this week.

While her expanded waistline is quite likely the result of a little lunch-time indulgence, there's no doubt it will set off whispers of a pregnancy for the 38-year-old.


Off guard: Uma Thurman surprised onlookers with a mystery bump while holidaying in Corsica this week


After all, it does coincide with her recent engagement to the Swiss multimillionaire. 

The pair announced their plans to wed in the personal columns of The Times last month, followed by an engagement party of stellar proportions.

A marquee in the garden of Arki's £10million Kensington home played host to an array of stars, including Elton John, Sting, Sir Philip Green, Jemima Khan, Claudia Schiffer and Damien Hirst. 

Smooth sailing: The newly engaged actress soaked up the sun aboard a luxury yacht 

She met the 45-year-old financier and philanthropist at a dinner party in Milan last summer, having just split up from her partner of three years, the New York hotelier Andre Balazs. 

The star had also endured three years of being stalked by a psychiatric patient in her native New York, and prior to that the painful collapse of her marriage to fellow actor Ethan Hawke, with whom she has a daughter, Maya, nine, and a son, Levon, six. 

Arki's relationship with Uma, who found fame in films Dangerous Liaisons and Pulp Fiction, follows nine years with the Australian model Elle Macpherson, with whom he has two sons, Flynn, ten, and Cy, five.

Anyone who thinks Uma Thurman’s still pining away for her ex and the father of her two children while he cavorts with their former nanny is dead wrong. The actress just confirmed her engagement to millionaire/hedge fund financier Arki Busson. Take that, Ethan!

Uma Thurman Engaged

Uma Thurman is engaged to her Swiss multimillionaire boyfriend, Arpad “Arki” Busson, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

“I can confirm she is engaged,” Stephen Huvane said on Friday.

In return for saying yes, the actress received some serious sparkle: an 8-plus carat center stone surrounded by 20 smaller stones. “It’s the most beautiful piece I’ve ever seen,” says a close source of the diamond ring. “Arki did a wonderful job.”

The pair began dating last summer after attending a private dinner together in Milan. Since then, their relationship quickly heated up despite the fact that the couple lived on different continents (she is based in New York, he in London).

It would be the second marriage for Thurman, who has a son and daughter with ex Ethan Hawke, whom she divorced in 2003. Busson has two sons with former supermodel Elle Macpherson, from whom he split in 2005.

No wedding date has been set.

Actually, this would be Uma’s third marriage – before Ethan, she was married to actorGary Oldman from 1990-1992. Congrats to the couple, and let’s hope this marriage works out for Uma.

Uma did not appear to be wearing the ring on Wednesday night, and just had a simple band on her left ring finger.
