Poppy Montgomery‘s popping out — and she’s ready to share why.
The Unforgettable star and husband Shawn Sanford are expecting their second child together — a boy! — this fall, she tells PEOPLE. The actress is already six months pregnant and glad the cat’s finally out the bag.
“I’m so happy. I’m hoping to get all of the privileges now of a real pregnant person,” jokes Montgomery, who broke the news at a taping of ABC’s The View, airing Friday, then revealed the sex on Thursday’s episode of Late Night with David Letterman. “I want to be respected and given lots of royal treatment.”
She also wants to set the record straight. “I haven’t told anyone yet, so people just think I have enormous boobs,” she says. “I was like ‘I wonder if they think I went and got a boob job?'”
