Rachel Bloom said she would be proud to have a son who did drag.

The Crazy Ex-Girlfriend star is set to guest judge the twelfth season of RuPaul's Drag Race - which airs this month - and on Twitter, the actress revealed she was secretly two months pregnant while filming the new series.

She wrote: "I and my secret pregnancy tits were SO PUMPED TO DO THIS.

"I will never feel like I she done already done had herses with this show."

She then confessed watching the queens performed got her 'really emotional' thinking how proud she would be to have a son who did drag.

Bloom continued on Twitter: "(I was only 2 months along when this filmed and as I watched all of the queens I got really emotional thinking about how proud I'd be if I had a son who did drag)

"(But it's all good because anyone can do drag so I've been playing episodes of Drag Race loudly for my stomach)"

The actress joins the likes of Nicki Minaj, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Whoopi Goldberg, Chaka Khan, Jeff Goldblum, Robyn, Leslie Jones, Normani, Thandie Newton, Daisy Ridley, Olivia Munn, Jonathan Bennett, Daniel Franzese and Winnie Harlow as guest judges.

The identities of the 13 queens heading into the werkroom for Drag Race season 12 were revealed last month, and RuPaul has teased that this year's crop of contestants are "the most talented we've ever had".

The queens for season 12 are: Aiden Zhane, Brita, Crystal Methyd, Dahlia Sin, Gigi Goode, Heidi N Closet, Jackie Cox, Jaida Essence Hall, Jan, Nicky Doll, Rock M. Sakura, Sherry Pie and Widow Von’Du.
