Joseph Gordon-Levitt expecting his second child with wife Tasha McCauley

Lovely news for Joseph Gordon-Levitt and his wife Tasha McCauley, who are expecting their second child together.

A spokesperson for the 3rd Rock from the Sun and 500 Days of Summer star confirmed the pregnancy after Tasha was spotted out and about in Beverly Hills sporting a noticable baby bump, although no further details have been released from the notoriously private couple.

The baby will be the second child for the actor and his wife, who welcomed their first child, a son, in 2015.

Explaining why he chooses to keep his family out of the spotlight, Joseph explained previously during an appearance on Live! With Kelly and Michael: ‘Being in the public eye is a great thing. It allows me to do what I love to do, which is act in movies, but it’s a choice that I made.’

‘My son, he’s just a baby, you know? He hasn’t made the choice to be in the public eye, and that’s a choice that I would like him to be able to make when he’s older, when he can think about these kinds of things and make that decision for himself. And so, for now, I’m just a protective dad, and I want to protect his privacy.’

Joseph and Tasha tied the knot in December 2014, although the news of their nuptials didn’t break until the beginning of the following year. However, true to form, the pair have stayed tight-lipped about the specifics of their big day.

Speaking to Howard Stern in 2013, Joseph confirmed he was dating someone, but didn’t even reveal Tasha’s name.

‘I think I’m a pretty good person and a good boyfriend. Yeah, I just wouldn’t want to be with someone who was disrespectful to me. She’s not in show business,’ he said.

‘I think that I could partner up with somebody – I don’t know who that somebody is – I could partner up with a woman and commit to we’re going to raise a family and that’s a project we’re going to commit to for 20-something years,’ he continued at the time.

‘I like to not be too committed to any one future that’s really far away, necessarily, unless there’s a reason, which is why I’m saying if you’re gonna raise a family… I can make that commitment.’
