Maggie Gyllenhaal & Peter Sarsgaard are expecting their second child

This is the opposite of shocking, but it’s still a nice story – Maggie Gyllenhaal is knocked up again! Life & Style “confirms” (but not really) that Maggie and her husband Peter Sargaard are expecting their second child. Maggie and Peter are parents to five-year-old Ramona… damn, is that kid already 5? It feels like Maggie was just pregnant with Ramona a few years ago. Anyway, we totally called this when we were talking about Maggie’s sketchy style at the Rome Film Festival – she had an obvious baby bump in late October. My guess is that she’s already well into her second trimester.

Maggie Gyllenhaal had a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving! Life & Style can exclusively reveal that the 33-year-old actress and her husband, Peter Sarsgaard, are expecting their second child together.

“Over Thanksgiving weekend, Maggie was telling friends that she’s six months pregnant,” a friend of the actress tells Life & Style. “Her bump is so big!”

Rumors about a pregnancy began when Maggie turned up at the Rome Film Festival premiere of her latest movie, Hysteria, on Oct. 28 with what appeared to be a little baby bump. While the actress hasn’t publicly confirmed her second child, the friend tells Life & Style that Maggie is over the moon.

“She’s thrilled to be pregnant! She and Peter have wanted another child for a while,” says the friend. “They’re very happy that they’ll have another baby in the house soon.”

Maggie’s little brother, Jake Gyllenhaal, is said to be ecstatic about the news, too!

“Jake is so happy that she’s pregnant again because he loves kids,” says the friend. “Maggie’s said that he’s the best uncle and has done a lot of sweet things for her first child.”

Maggie and Peter are already parents to 5-year-old daughter Ramona but haven’t revealed the sex of their soon-to-be bundle of joy. Regardless, Maggie’s very excited and couldn’t wait to spill the news to her family and friends.Though Maggie has been in a relationship with her actor hubby since 2002, the couple didn’t marry until 2009, after the birth of their first child. The pair currently live in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Maggie and Peter are pretty much settled in NYC, right? And Jake lives in NYC most of the time too, and I buy that Maggie and Jake are genuinely close and that Jake relishes being a doting uncle. Congrats to the whole family! I’ve always thought Peter was so hot – but I always like the ones with crazy eyes.

    Awwws! Congrats! (I don’t know why, but I really like Maggie. I think it may have something to do with Mona Lisa Smile. She just seems very “real” to me.)

    Congrats to them. Maggie is my absolute favorite actress. And she is beautiful in the best possible way, she is interesting and does not have boring cookie cutter good looks like much of hollywood. I love her and will watch her in anything she does. I particularly like her in the Will Farrell flick, forgot the name. And Peter is good too in a creepy sort of way.

  8. kit says:

    happy to know I’m not the only one who thinks Peter is hot, and the rougher he looks the hotter he seems.
    Is it me or do the celebs that live away from la seem more genuine (incl their relationships?

      Oh no, it’s not you, honey. “Stay away from LA” should be a motto for actors and actresses.

      LA is TOXIC. The smog is atrocious; the environment is atrocious; the attitude is atrocious.

      I would sooner eat toxic waste than reside in LA.

    these two were in front of us in the security line at the airport heading to Rome last month. Peter was very handsome and impressive in person, and Maggie was smiley and sweet and seemed taller than I imagined. I didn’t notice a baby bump but she was wearing those comfy harem sweatpants so…

    Any dude who would do full frontal is aces in my book. And I really like her. Such a great actress. Congrats to them. I remember people giving her such crap for breastfeeding in public. I’m glad she did it. In some corners of this county it really is an almost revolutionary act.
