It’ll be another girl for Erika Christensen! The Parenthood alum accidentally slipped that she’s expecting a second daughter while attending the Vanity Fair and Max Mara Celebrate Alexandra Shipp, ‘2018 Women in Film Max Mara Face of the Future’ Award Recipient event on Tuesday, June 12.
Christensen, 35, gushed that her daughter Shane, 2, is excited to meet “her” in a few months. “Hopefully, the little one will learn a lot from her sister,” the actress told Us Weekly at the event. “My mom got her a t-shirt that says big sister. So she seems to grasp that there’s a baby in here, and she’s going to be a big sister. And she’s given the belly some kisses and stuff.”
Christensen announced last month that she and her husband, Cole Maness, are gearing up for baby No. 2.
“He’s very excited. He’s extremely in love with our girl,” she said. “He’s very excited to kind of see what the family expansion means for us.” (The couple tied the knot in 2015.)
The Clover star admits she was “very nauseous” in her first trimester, but she doesn’t find it more difficult than her first pregnancy.
“I feel like the body was equalizing all the hormones and everything, and I’m kind of over that hump and into just more of like, I’m a person with a belly now,” she added to Us. “I also haven’t challenged myself particularly. Last time, I did a lot of big adventurous hikes and things, and I think I ought to get back into that. I think I was a little fitter the last time.”
As for recent cravings she’s been having? Salty goods like olives and cheese!
