Melissa Joan Hart announced on Tuesday that she is expecting her third baby with husband Mark Wilkerson. The actress is getting ready to celebrate her 36th anniversary but she could not wait until her birthday to announce her pregnancy.
The producers of “Melissa & Joey” will have a hard time concealing the actress’ growing bump in the current season of the series. So far, they did a great job as nobody guessed that Hart is expecting her third child. The news was made public on Tuesday when the actress posted a picture of herself surrounded by her husband and her previous two children. The growing baby bump is visible enough in the picture, but Melissa wanted to make sure that people notice it so she accompanied the pic with the message: “(Early) Happy Birthday to me! And baby makes 3!”
The couple seems to love parenthood as they have two previous sons. Mason Walter is 6, whereas his brother, Braydon Hart turned 4 last month. The two didn’t find out the gender of the third child, but they are not very curious about it, either. They stated on repeated occasions that they don’t have specific preferences; they only wish for their children to be healthy.
During a 2009 interview, Melissa told reporters that she loves her boys very much, so she won’t mind if she doesn’t get pregnant again. Nevertheless, she left reporters understand that she will most likely become a mother for the third time because she likes the pregnancy period and she wants to have as many children as possible.
It will be very challenging for the producers of the sitcom “Melissa & Joey” to hide the actress’ already visible belly. Season two is expected to premiere on May 30, on ABC Family, but two promos have already been released. In one of the promos the attention is captured by Joey Lawrence’ pecs, whereas in the second promo, Melissa is holding a bag in front of her midsection, so you can’t tell she is pregnant.
