Jenna Elfman is pregnant in real life, which is handy for her new CBS show.
The “Accidentally on Purpose” star confirmed that she’s expecting her second child on CBS’ Early Show Wednesday, less than a month after she said she’d “definitely” want to be a mother of two.
“I have a baby in my tummy — but a real one, not just for my TV show,” she revealed. “My character’s pregnant the whole first season, so I said, ‘It’s a good time to have another baby, because we won’t have to hide it.'”
On the CBS comedy, which premieres on Monday, Sept. 21, Elfman plays a woman who has a fling with younger man and “accidentally” falls pregnant. He becomes more than a one-night stand, however, when he decides to be part of her and their baby’s life.
“By episode three if you look closely once it airs, you’ll see … ‘Oh is she a little bloated? Did she have a big dinner?,'” Elfman joked.
Elfman and husband Bodhi already have a 2-year-old son, Story Elias.
