Actress Erika Christensen reveals she’s expecting her second child

Erika Christensen has revealed she is pregnant with her second child in a candid Instagram snap.

The Parenthood star, who is already mum to an adorable little girl, took to social media to share the happy news of her pregnancy.

Erika posted a series of pictures on Instagram which showed her in a striking red jumpsuit and then a tight fitting dress.

Joking that it was ‘all about the angles’, the actress surprised her 135,000 followers with a very prominent baby bump!

In the caption Erika wrote: ‘ALL ABOUT THE ANGLE. #swipe #secrets’.

The actress also confirmed on her Instagram story that the bump was not a food baby. She wrote: ‘And I didn’t just eat a burrito’. Though we all know the feeling…

Erika and her husband, cyclist Cole Maness, are already parents to a little girl named Shane, who is set to turn two on 21 June. The couple married in 2015 after several years of dating.

To avoid any further doubt about if she was expecting a second child, Erika also posted a picture of her daughter on her Instagram story wearing a pink t-shirt that had the words ‘big sister’ written inside a big gold loveheart on the front.

Erika wrote on the picture: ‘Check the t-shirt’.

When Erika went into labour with her daughter Shane, instead of keeping it under wraps and announcing the birth with a big reveal picture, Erica broke tradition and decided to TWEET that she was in labour.

The mum-of-two-to-be is yet to say if she is having a little boy or girl or what her due date is, but it will be interesting to see if she has the same approach going into labour the second time round – we can only hope!

Little Shane is going to become a big sister very soon!
