Hollywood actress Vera Farmiga is pregnant with her second child.
The Oscar nominee for 'Up In The Air', who already has 15-month-old son Fynn with husband Renn Hawkey, confirmed the news at the MET Costume Institute Gala Benefit.
She revealed that is three months pregnant, telling the USA Today newspaper: "I'm past the first trimester, so I'm not feeling sick anymore."
Rumours that she was expecting had already surfaced in the showbusiness community when the 36-year-old star recently pulled out of a forthcoming role in 'Machine Gun Preacher' alongside Gerard Butler because she was unable to travel.
A source said: "She is due in October. The role would have meant travelling to Africa this summer, but because her baby is due in the fall, she would have been too far along to make the trip."
Farmiga previously spoke about how she can't remember what life was like before she became a parent, saying: "I've played a lot of mothers in my movies and I come from a massive family where the youngest is like 20-something years younger than I am.
"My mother had seven kids and I've sort of been studying her my whole life so I knew what to expect. But the funny part is, since having my son Fynn, I don't remember what life was like before parenthood."
In recent years, Farmiga has established herself as one of cinema's most respected actresses with roles in 'The Departed', 'The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas', 'Orphan' and her multi-award nominated turn in 'Up in the Air' opposite George Clooney.
