Their diaper days aren't over. Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard are already proud parents to their daughter, Ramona. And now the five year-old will have a brand new brother or sister.
The actors are expecting their second child, Gyllenhaal's rep confirms. The couple married in 2009, and Gyllenhaal says motherhood took her by surprise the first time around.
"I just didn't have a clue," she said. "There's no way to prepare for the challenges, the immense joys, the surprises, the disappointments and the shocks."
Not sure what "disappointments" she's referring to. Probably the death of your social life that inevitably happens when you pop out a kid or two. Those little people ruin everything. Just kidding.
Gyllenhaal continued: "Your heart just rips open. It's amazing."
Wow, if childbirth wasn't painful enough…
A source recently told Life & Style magazine: ‘Over Thanksgiving weekend, Maggie was telling friends that she’s six months pregnant. Her bump is so big."
So how is she feeling about it?
"She’s thrilled to be pregnant! She and Peter have wanted another child for a while," the source continues. "They’re very happy that they’ll have another baby in the house soon,’ a friend told the magazine.
Baby bump rumors started last month when Maggie was promoting her new movie. Gyllenhaal stars in the overseas flick, Hysteria. And it's about vibrators. Yes, those vibrators. The kind you never, ever leave out of its special drawer, because your little brother might come over and ask "how this flashlight works."
The movie debuted at the Toronto Film Festival this summer and tells the story of Dr. Mortimer Granville, a doctor who is trying to cure female "hysteria." What's female hysteria? Basically anything that causes women to "act out" or feel discomfort. So basically, anything from childbirth to complaining that you have a headache. I'm hysterical right now.
In the movie, Granville cures this by introducing a "manual massage." Gyllenhaal plays a woman who tries to teach the doctor what it is women really want. The actress described her work in the movie:
"By the time I finished the movie, I'd been sent maybe fifteen vibrators by different people in London with vibrator stores."
But it's not all fun and game. Somewhere beyond the vibrating, the movie had an important message:
"It's about vibrators and women's orgasms, and I don’t think people really do talk about it very much," Maggie says. "And I do think it does still make us flushed and uncomfortable."
