Busy Philipps Expecting Baby No. 2

Congratulations are in order for Busy Philipps and Marc Silverstein.

The Cougar Town actress, 33, and her husband are expecting their second child, she announced via Twitter.

Already mom to 4-year-old daughter Birdie Leigh, the funny mom shared her pregnancy news on Monday, posting a picture of her positive pregnancy test.

“So this happened…” she tweeted.

Philipps and Silverstein were wed in 2007, and welcomed their first child in August 2008.

Last year, Philipps opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about her plans for baby No. 2.

“It’s really difficult working on a show with long hours,” she shared. “I was so lucky that the first year of Birdie’s life I didn’t work. I did the pilot of Cougar Town and I think I worked a total of seven days the first year of her life! I was really able to be there with her and be a full-time mom. I didn’t even have a nanny – or any help – for the first 6 months. I would like to think that with a second child I’d be able to give them the same amount of attention and time. That’s just not possible when you’re doing a network television show. We’ll see, I’m still young. Who knows what will happen in the future.”

    This is exciting! Congratulations to them.

    Guessing this’ll be hidden on the show, which I’m fine with. (Unless Laurie/Travis happens and then I’ll be thrilled if it’s written in, but doubt it’ll come the pairing will come this soon anyway.)

    Busy and Birdie? What will this child be called? Boogie?

    • klutzy_girl

      Busy’s just her nickname. Elizabeth is her actual name.

        Busy is what she goes by so for all intents and purposes, it’s her name.

          No , her name is what says on her birth certificate. It doesn’t matter if you go by “dude” on a daily basis, if your name is John, it will remain John.
