Expectant mother and top Irish actress Amy Huberman has thanked her well wishers who've sent her 'sweet' messages since her baby announcement.

The bubbly actress took to Twitter tonight to say that she's received very 'touching' messages of support.

Yesterday, Amy confirmed to independent.ie that she's expecting baby number two in November.

The actress, who is currently developing a script for a comedy for an Irish production company, took to Twitter to thank all her fans.

Amy and her husband Brian will welcome a brother or sister for their one-year-old daughter Sadie before Christmas, and they're keeping the sex of the baby a surprise.

"I managed to keep it under wraps for so long - we thought we'd just get on with it," the actress said yesterday.

The 34-year-old Huberman said tonight that she'll be looking for babysitters.

"In Twitter law, it now means you are all my babysitters," she tweeted.

Yesterday, she joked: "Two kids, it sounds so responsible."

Meanwhile, Brian said he was "glad" the news is finally out, and he posted a picture of American man Thomas Beatie, who became famous as the first man to give birth.

Huberman and Leinster centre O’Driscoll married four years ago last July and welcomed their first child in February 2013.

Huberman gave birth at the National Maternity Hospital in Holles Street within hours of walking the red carpet at the IFTA awards, on the morning of Ireland’s anticipated Six Nations clash against old rivals England.

She sparked speculation of another pregnancy last month, when she arrived to an opening at The Gate Theatre in Dublin and posed for pictures covering her stomach with the production programme.

An IFTA winner, the Threesome actress is currently taking a break from the screen to develop a comedy for an Irish production company.

She handed in her first draft of the script in August.

Since firmly establishing herself in the industry with her regular role in RTE’s The Clinic, Huberman has branched out to become a bona fide businesswoman.

In recent years she has become a published author and to-date has released three footwear collections for Bourbon Footwear.

Another range of shoes is expected to be released in the coming months.

Huberman is not the only one enjoying a plenty of opportunity work wise.

Her 34-year-old husband will this Friday officially join Newstalk Radio’s Off The Ball team as a pundit.

Last week O’Driscoll stepped out as a regular contributor on BT Sport, being introduced on presenter Craig Doyle’s Rugby Tonight programme.

O’Driscoll hung up his international and club jerseys in May, saying goodbye to a career spanning 15 years on the rugby pitch.
