Her girls: Anna Chlumsky now has two daughters!

PEOPLE learned exclusively that Chlumsky was expecting baby number two in April. She and So, a business executive who previously served in the military, were married in 2008.

In May, the actress dished on her pregnancy cravings on Last Call with Carson Daly.

“With this pregnancy, I want Japanese food all the time,” she said, comparing it to her penchant for sweets with her first pregnancy. “I want sushi!”

This whole thing has taught me that motherhood has a wealth of definitions and identities,” Chlumsky told PEOPLE in 2015. “There’s no one way to be a mom or one way to be a ‘good’ mom.

“I spend every morning thinking about this person in my family,” she said at the time. “Does it feel like what I saw on TV growing up? Not really, but that’s what’s cool about it.”
