Despite suffering through postpartum depression after welcoming her first child, celebrity mom Bryce Dallas Howard is ready for another baby! The actress is expecting her second child with husband, Seth Gabel.
A rep for Bryce told Usmagazine.com exclusively that Bryce and Seth are expecting baby number two.
Bryce and Seth’s son Theo is four.
Bryce opened up about her experience with postpartum depression in Gwenyth Paltrow’s GOOP newsletter, saying: “Before Theo was born, I had been in good humor about my 80-pound weight gain, but I was now mortified by it. 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.”
Bryce revealed that she got through the experience with the help of treatment, support of family and friends, as well as reading Brooke Shields account of her own experience with postpartum depression in her book Down Came the Rain.
But Bryce says the experience taught her a valuable lesson: “Do I wish I had never endured postpartum depression? Absolutely. I…feel deep gratitude for those who stood by me, for the lesson that we must never be afraid to ask for help.”
