Bryce Dallas Howard Gives Birth to Second Child

By Monica Bielanko |

Bryce Dallas Howard at the Hollywood Film Awards in October.

Bryce Dallas Howard, actress and daughter of director Ron Howard, has given birth to her second child.  According to her dad’s tweet last night, Howard gave birth to her daughter Thursday.

“Beatrice Jean Howard-Gabel Born Jan 19, 2012 8lbs. 6oz. Bryce & Baby B are spectacular Daddy Seth & brother Theo are beaming ear to ear :-) ” Ron Howard tweeted.

As ETonline reports, Ron continued the tweet love by saying “Beatrice’s arrival is hugely exciting for our family.”

This is Howard’s first daughter.  Her son, Theodore, was born in 2007 and Howard famously suffered an intense case of postpartum depression.  As I reported earlier:

Howard found at she was pregnant just five days after her wedding in 2006, when she was only 25, and gained more than 80 pounds during her pregnancy. After giving birth she says she called her son “it” even though he was named Theo, convinced herself she was a terrible actress and mother and struggled to breastfeed.

Hopefully, much like Heather Armstrong and her second child, Marlo, Howard knows what to look for and if PPD rears its ugly head she’ll be able to deal with it properly.
