Laura Prepon & Husband Ben Foster Are Expecting Baby No. 2

Laura Prepon is preparing to even the playing field when it comes to her family’s parent-child ratio.

Today, the Orange Is the New Black star, 39, revealed that she and her husband, Ben Foster, are expecting their second child together. Prepon announced the exciting news on her personal Instagram account and shared a photo of her growing baby bump.

The pic features her 2-year-old daughter, Ella, sitting on her belly. Prepon captioned the post, “We are so excited to announce that our family is growing. Life is beautiful! #knockedup.”

Prepon and Foster, who is also an actor, officially started dating in 2016, though they had been friends since they were teenagers. In August 2017, they welcomed their firstborn child, a baby girl named Ella. The following year, the couple tied the knot in an intimate ceremony.

Prepon first gained popularity in 1998 when she played Donna on the popular sitcom That ’70s Show. After the show wrapped, she went on to star in The Kitchen, The Girl on the Train and—of course—Orange Is the New Black.

In a candid interview with Us Weekly, Prepon admitted that she regularly experiences mom guilt. “I went back to work at six weeks. I was directing when she was a 4-month-old,” she said. “But she would be proud if she knew what I was doing.”

Congratulations to the soon-to-be family of four!
