Msorvino Update: Mira tells People that she and Chris will not be finding out the sex of their baby, saying that, "We’re going to keep it a mystery." Mira also says that she’s been craving and eating lots of broccoli rabe, and enjoying the less-stressed feeling of being pregnant for the second time, "I’m a little more relaxed [this time]. The first time [you’re pregnant], you worry every time you trip!" For now, she’s enjoying her last solo months with Mattea, saying, "I’m so happy to be alone with Mattea now. In Malibu, where we live [most of the time], we’re going to do a Mommy and Me ballet [class]. It’s the cutest thing."

January 3rd: As we first reported back in November, actress Mira Sorvino, 38, and husband Chris Backus, 24, are expecting again. Daughter Mattea Angel is 13 months. Mira confirmed the news today, telling People magazine, "I’m so excited that Mattea is going to have a sibling. We’re going to be a family of four." She is due early this summer.

Damn, they move quick. Well, it just seems quick. I keep forgetting about others that have had babies way before a year passed, lol. Anyway, congrats to them. 🙂

Well I suppose Mira herself realises that she isn’t getting any younger, (she’s 38 already) so she might as well have her children asap. 😆 (Plus her oldest daughter will be at least 18 months old when baby #2 comes along. :))

Anyway, congratulations to Mira and Chris, and I hope they have another adorible bundle of joy!

Congrats to them. I think that it is wonderful news. They appear to be great parents. Can’t wait to see what name they pick out for the new baby…..I love their daughter’s name Mattea!!
