Punky’s pregnant — again!

Soleil Moon Frye and husband Jason Goldberg are expecting their third child, she announced on Today Wednesday. The happy news coincided with the release of her new app, Moonfrye.

The couple, who married in October 1998, are already parents to daughters Jagger Joseph Blue, 5, and Poet Sienna Rose, 8 this month.

“I have a very big announcement: We have a newest addition to the family here,” Frye said on the show. “Two girls and now a new baby to join the family. Poet and Jagger are so excited. I’m so excited I can actually touch my belly now, I’ve been hiding it for so long.”

Another child has been on Goldberg, a film and television producer, and Frye’s mind since last fall.

“I want a third! I just feel like if I have a third it will be another girl and I would be so into it,” she told The Bump in October. “And then maybe the fourth would be a boy. Fingers crossed within the next year!”

Frye, 37, who made a name for herself on the ’80s sitcom Punky Brewster, went on to costar on Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. She’s since transitioned to a career as an author — her book, Happy Chaos, is out now, and her next tome,  Let’s Get This Party Started, will be released Oct. 15. She’ll also host Home Made Simple on OWN later this year.

Aw, congratulations! I was watching Today this morning, but turned my back to do something and only caught the tail end of the announcement.

Interested to see what they name this one!

I remember watching Punky Brewster – nice childhood memories.

Congrats – that’s amazing news.

This will push her BFF Demi Moore over the edge with jealousy…

Katie on

She was a favorite of mine in the 80′s. I watched that show every time it was on. Congratulations on the new addition. I have a feeling it will be a boy though since she made the comment about the third being a girl. Ha.

Shes such a cute girl good info on prenuership…yet cant figure out WHY she was saying she was HIDING her tummy you should show the world when ur preggers…Congrats!

Just Saying on

The name, Jagger Joseph Blue sounds like Soleil and the baby’s daddy were expecting a boy to be born, then didn’t want to change the name to a girl’s name after they found out the gender of the child. If she has a boy this time, I hope she chooses something more appropriate for a boy and not a name like Violet Ivy Pink.

Kayte on

She is so pretty and seems to be such a down to earth mom. Lucky children. Congrats!

I had Punky Brewster bedroom slippers. She was my hero, along with She-ra. I wish her and her family all the best.

Congrats!!! Out of topic, she looks like the young version of Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger :)

Finally some good news to report! Congrats to her!

MollyF on

I’m a huge fan of hers. I follow her on Twitter and I’m so happy for her and her husband, Jason.

And to Just Sayin’, who gives you the right to comment on a child’s name? Soleil and her husband, Jason are very unique people and don’t want to be part of the “norm.” So I would keep your comments to yourself.

melissa on

Congrads to them both. I love the names they’ve chosen for their children. I hope they get their boy.

Sharon on

Im thinking they just wanted to keep it to themselves for a while….but you cant keep that a secret for too long lol ;)

Sharon on

Congratulations!! I loved Punky Brewster, along with the Wonder Years, the Facts of Life, etc…wow i feel so old!!! Hope she has a healthy pregnancy and baby…..i totally understand the unique names…i kinda think its cute since hers is so unique too.

stacey on

Jagger, and for a girl. That should be a crime.

Mary on

This is just one of those celebrities that, yes, congratulations on the new addition, but I just can’t feel excited about because I’m more scared of what name concoction she’s going to cook up for this baby.

genibre2013 on

Yet more stupid Hollywood names coming.. oy vey

Alina on

So refreshing to see a former child star who has her life together! Mazal Tov!

Pam on

Best wishes for a happy and healthy baby you’re still adorable and you have a lovely family!!

DaGuest on

IMHO, Jagger Joseph is a terrible name for a girl. Why would they do that? Maybe they call her JJ or something. Again, it’s just my opinion.

Mary on

Happy for her and her family, she is adorable.

Lena on

Congrats to her! I just hope—and it’s really not my business but it DOES get to me—that she gives her third child a name that is a bit more traditional for a girl…Jagger Joseph is a rough one for a little girl!!!! Poet is a really cute non traditional name…HOpe if she has a boy she doesn’t name him Daffodil or something…
