BRIAN O'Driscoll and Amy Huberman are expecting their second baby to arrive in time for Christmas.

The actress revealed the news as she appeared at a book launch with a neat but noticeable bump on show.

The 34-year-old said that she and retired rugby legend O'Driscoll (35) are overjoyed with the news that they are to become parents once again. "I'm due in November. We haven't learnt the sex yet so we want it to be a surprise," she said at the launch of David O'Doherty's latest book, 'Danger is Everywhere'.

"I managed to keep it under wraps for so long - we thought we'd get on with it."

Huberman and O'Driscoll married four years ago last July and welcomed their first child, Sadie, in February 2013.

Her husband called time on his glittering Leinster and Ireland career at the end of last season, and has since scored punditry roles with Newstalk and BT Sports.

Huberman said: "It's lovely timing with Brian finishing, it's exciting and I'm really excited for Sadie as well.

"She doesn't understand at all though, not a bit.

"It'll be a new thing for her to play with - I'm sure she'll understand by November, she'll be well up to speed.

"Brian is feeling very excited - so it's all change. Two kids, it sounds so responsible."

Huberman gave birth to Sadie in Holles Street just hours after the IFTA awards, and on the morning of Ireland's Six Nations clash against old rivals England.

She sparked pregnancy speculation last month, when she arrived at the Gate Theatre and posed for pictures covering her stomach with the programme.
