Gretchen Mol is expecting her second child! It’s a perfect time for a break from her show Boardwalk Empire.
“I’m just enjoying this time. We’re not shooting now so I’m having a baby and then we’ll start shooting again, which is great,” Mol, 38, said.
“It’s really lovely to know I have a job coming and there’s this little time and I can really enjoy it instead of feeling [stressed].”
She and her husband Kip Williams are already proud parents to son Ptolemy John who is three.
Gretchen admits though that people’s reaction isn’t what she expected.
“It’s interesting the reaction … when people see you and say, ‘oh, when are you due? Is it your first?’ And you say, ‘no, it’s my second.’ They’re like, ‘Oh, [disappointed sigh].’ Like, it’s just not as sweet and dramatic,” she said.
“You don’t get that reaction like you did with the first one so you sort of feel like, ‘Oh yeah, just, here I am again.’”
Gretchen and Kip will welcome their new bundle of joy in February.
