Confirming the news, Jenna tweeted Us Weekly’s announcement: “Jenna Fischer Pregnant, Expecting Second Child With Husband Lee Kirk! http://usm.ag/1c5J6cJ via @usweekly.”
She also tweeted at Molly McNearney, Jimmy Kimmel’s pregnant wife. “@mollymcnearney Let’s talk :) Congrats!” she writes. (Jimmy revealed they’re expecting their third child earlier this week on The Ellen Show.)
“It’s so funny because I think there’s the perception that every [famous] woman has a driver and a chef and a personal trainer and a nanny,” Jenna said shortly after having her son, Wes (born September 2011). “I don’t have any of those things. Like other working moms, I’m trying to figure out how to balance it all.”
“When I say I’m going jogging with my son or eating certain things or whatever,” she continues, “there’s a tendency to be cynical and say, ‘Of course, because someone cooked it for her’—or ‘Of course she’s on a date, because she had her nanny watch the baby.’ No, absolutely not. I want people to know that.”
And a little celeb parent trivia: Jenna and Lee were married in 2010 in a ceremony officiated by none other than Survivor host Jeff Probst.
