It’s official: Bryce Dallas Howard is pregnant!

The actress, whose latest film The Help is due out this summer, is expecting her second child with husband Seth Gabel, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

The couple have one son, 4-year-old Theo.

A few years after she first became a mom, Howard, 30, wrote a candid account of her battle with postpartum depression.

Before announcing her latest pregnancy, Howard set tongues wagging when she wore a flowing chartreuse empire waist gown by Reem Acra on a red carpet in Cannes recently.

When I saw BDH on the red carpet for the premiere of Restless I thought she had already made a pregnancy announcement but I couldn’t remember. I now know that she hadn’t but she is indeed pregnant! CONGRATULATIONS!!!

I like Bryce and can’t wait to see her in “The Help” this summer. The book is my all time favorite and she looks great in it. Congrats!

Wasn’t crazy about her in Eclipse but she is a talented beautiful actress, all the best to her and her husband on baby number two.
