Busy Philipps has announced that she is expecting her second baby with her screenwriter husband Marc Silverstein.
The 33 year old actress shared the news on twitter by posting a snap of her positive pregnancy test.

The couple already have a four year old daughter named Birdie Leigh.

The Cougar Town star normally keeps a close eye on her weight but has said that pregnancy has made her relax her approach to her body.

During an appearance on Good Morning America she explained;

''Yes, I'm having a baby,' Busy said on the talk show. 'I think it's so hard as a woman to give yourself a break.

'It's great to be healthy but you have to set a good example for your kids and know that it's not about a number on a scale but how you feel.'

Busy gained 75lbs during her last pregnancy but managed to lose her baby weight within a year.

'I breastfed for 14 months which helped. The first 20lbs came off fairly easily and after that I went to the gym twice a week and did plenty of walking. It was hard, but thank God for spanx.'
