Busy Philipps pregnant with baby no.2!

Actress tweets positive pregnancy test and chats about her baby bump

Earlier this week, actress Busy Philipps took to Twitter to announce her second pregnancy.


Tweeting a photo of a Clearblue pregnancy test stick showing ‘Pregnant’, the image was simply captioned “So this happened…”

After being inundated with congratulations and well wishes from her fans, Busy tweeted again: “Thanks for all the sweet words and warm wishes today! It's been really nice to read them! Birdie is, indeed, super excited to be a big sis…”

It seems the idea to announce her pregnancy news to the masses wasn’t her own. Speaking to US Weekly, the Cougar Town star said: “I talked to my husband about it, and he’s infinitely smart and wise in these things and he said, ‘Just get off the phone and tweet it right now.”

Busy isn’t the only one excited about the new arrival, her 4-year-old daughter Birdie can’t wait to meet her new baby brother or sister: “She’s super excited, and she’s been asking for at least a year when her baby's gonna come? Which is so cute. So now she’s really excited, she talks about it every day, she tells everyone that we see.”

Pregnancy the second time around is already proving to be a challenge: “It’s totally different. Your first pregnancy you have nothing to do except sleep and take care of yourself and go to pre-natal yoga or whatever.”

The mum-to-be added, “Now I have a full-time job, I have a 4-year-old, I’ve got a life that is demanding my attention, so I’ve gone to prenatal yoga once. It’s such a bummer.”

However, the 33-year-old revealed some perks: “The good thing about being pregnant is that I don’t have to worry about sucking it in or dieting!”
