Pregnant Melissa Joan Hart and her hubby Mark Wilkerson are eagerly awaiting the arrival of their third child, but they’re in no hurry to find out if the baby is a boy or a girl.
“We don’t want to know. We found out both other times, but this one we want [it to be] a surprise,” the Melissa & Joey star told People at the Big City Mom’s Biggest Baby Shower in New York City.
Melissa, 36, has her hands full with two lively sons, Mason Walter, 6, and Braydon Hart, 4, and says each of her pregnancies has been unique.
“The first one I was shocked at how much I didn’t like being pregnant and how uncomfortable I was,” she recalls. “The second time around I didn’t even realize I was pregnant because I was so busy chasing a 1-year-old.”
And with the third? “I’ve had a lot of nausea and exhaustion so it’s been a little more difficult, especially when dealing with two kids running around the house,” she says. “So I’m still trying to figure it all out.”
While the baby’s gender will be a surprise, Melissa is hoping that delivery process is not. “[Mason's birth] was completely medically intervened. I wanted my second one totally different, so I did a hypno-birthing class and managed to pop Brady out naturally. That’s the plan again, but we’ll see.”
