Congratulations are in order for Bryce Dallas Howard and hubby Seth Gabel, who are expecting their second child, a rep confirms to Us Weekly. The actors welcomed baby boy Theo in February 2007, after tying the knot in 2006.
]]><![CDATA[The news should shock no one, as Howard walked the Cannes red carpet earlier this month not once, but twice, with a very visible baby bump. Looking radiant, we might add!
She may have been keeping quiet about the pregnancy as a result of her previous battle with
postpartum depression following the birth of her first child. She opened
up about her struggles in Gwyneth Paltrow’s GOOP blog last summer.
“Before Theo was born, I had been in good humor about my 80-pound weight
gain, but I was now mortified by it,” the “Eclipse” actress wrote. “I
felt I was failing at breast feeding. My house was a mess. I believed I
was a terrible dog owner. I was certain I was an awful actress.”
After seeking professional help, the daughter of famed director Ron
Howard says she learned a valuable lesson from the entire experience.
“Do I wish I never endured postpartum depression? Absolutely,” she
confessed. “I… feel deep gratitude for those who stood by me, for the
lesson that we must never be afraid to ask for help.”
Here’s hoping the new addition will be a smoother transition for the growing family. Congrats!
