Bryce Dallas Howard, the daughter of director Ron Howard, is pregnant with her second child, as confirmed by her rep.
Howard is married to actor Seth Gabel of Fringe and the couple had their first son in 2007.
Howard starred in The Village, Spider-Man 3, and Terminator Salvation, but she’s probably best known for her role in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. She earned a Golden Globe nomination in 2006 in As You Like It.
Howard met her husband when they were at New York University and dated for five years before marrying. She says she had only one boyfriend before Gabel. Seven days after their wedding, they learned they were pregnant.
After the birth of her son, Theo, Howard says she suffered from post-partum depression. And it was bad. She would cry in the shower and often referred to her son as “it”.
Howard said of her eighteen-month long depression:
"Do I wish I had never endured post-partum depression? Absolutely. But to deny the experience is to deny who I am. I still mourn the loss of what could have been, but I also feel deep gratitude for those who stood by me, for the lesson that we must never be afraid to ask for help, and for the feeling of summer that still remains."
Let's hope post-pregnancy treats her better this time around!
