Maggie Gyllenhaal expecting a girl

2012-04-02 21:22
 
Los Angeles - Maggie Gyllenhaal is expecting a baby girl.

The 34-year-old actress and husband Peter Sarsgaard will welcome their second child - a sibling for five-year-old daughter Ramona - into the world some time this spring, and while they have now disclosed the gender of the tot, they are not planning to reveal exactly when it is due because they don't want to attract too much attention.

Maggie explained: "I hope (people) don't make an issue of it this time. I have to think about that stuff."

'So pregnant'

The Hysteria actress admitted she feels "so pregnant" right now and, after making a serious of public appearances before she announced she was expecting another baby, she is relieved she doesn't have to keep the news secret any more.

She told USA Today newspaper: "I find it difficult to pretend you're not pregnant, which I had to do. I didn't let anyone know until three and a half months this time. I went to film festivals. I'm throwing up in the bathroom and having to keep pretzels in my purse, and having to fit into dresses."

Peter recently revealed he and Maggie had been "trying out" names for the baby.

He said: "It's the nice thing about knowing the gender of a child; you don't have to call it 'it' which gets really weird after seven months in. So we've been trying out a few names, but nothing solid."
