The pregnancy is sure to be a bright spot in Dushku's life after dealing with several tough revelations. She has been embroiled in a conflict with CBS over alleged sexual harassment from Bull actor Michael Weatherly and also accused stuntman Joel Kramer of sexually abusing her while she filmed True Lies as a child.

"When I was 12 years old, while filming True Lies, I was sexually molested by Joel Kramer, one of Hollywood's leading stunt coordinators," Dushku wrote on Facebook in Jan. 2018. "Ever since, I have struggled with how and when to disclose this, if ever. At the time, I shared what happened to me with my parents, two adult friends and one of my older brothers. No one seemed ready to confront this taboo subject then, nor was I."

She added, "I remember how he laid me down on the bed, wrapped me with his gigantic writhing body, and rubbed all over me," she wrote. "He spoke these words: 'You're not going to sleep on me now sweetie, stop pretending you're sleeping,' as he rubbed harder and faster against my catatonic body. When he was 'finished', he suggested, 'I think we should be careful…,' [about telling anyone] he meant. I was 12, he was 36."
