Irish actor Chris O'Dowd and Dawn O'Porter are expecting their second child together
Broadcaster Dawn O'Porter has revealed she and husband Chris O'Dowd are expecting their second child.
The popoular media personality and the Irish actor have been married for five years and she made the exciting announcement on her Get It On podcast.
"Hope your 2017 is going really well. Mine certainly is. I am starting a new novel this week, I’m about to turn 38 and I am pregnant.
"So I’ll be investing in a lot of elasticated trousers and dusting off all my old vintage tents, not unlike a lot of people in January," she laughed.
TV presenter Caroline Flack was quick to congratulate the couple on Twitter, saying: "OMG ! Listen to the end... congratulations DAWN AND CHRIS! Another little bun in the oven."

The couple have a son Art, who will be two next month, and despite both of their high profile jobs, have opted to keep their family life out of the spotlight.
But Dawn hasn't shied away from gushing about motherhood.
"I have to say, I love it. Art's given me a really lovely start," she told Glamour magazine in 2015. "It's hard work and bloody relentless, but he's a really nice baby. I feel very lucky to have a healthy child.
"I was very emotionally ready to be a mum, so by the time he flopped out - well, didn't quite flop out - I was raring to go. He's very cute."
"When he sleeps I miss him. The relentlessness of this mission would be impossible without that love. Nature really is wonderful," she said.
And she previously expressed her frustrations in the difference in how she and her husband are interviewed.
"But sometimes, when I'm promoting my work, I find it really annoying. Chris can promote a movie and just talk about the movie," she said.
"I have to talk about my intentions for children, my child, my relationship - all this stuff before I get asked about my work."
