Billie Piper, Laurence Fox expecting second child

By
Billie Piper is expecting her second child with husband Laurence Fox.

A spokesperson told Digital Spy that the couple are "delighted" to be expecting another baby.

The former Secret Diary of a Call Girl star was reportedly worried that her pregnancy would affect her role in Neil LaBute's play Reasons to be Pretty.

London's Almeida Theatre's artistic director Michael Attenborough, who also directs the play, revealed news of the new arrival, telling the Daily Mail that Piper was upset at the prospect of disrupting the previews.

"She was upset and told me she was pregnant," Attenborough said, adding that the actress had "very generously offered to withdraw" from her role.

"However, she was Neil LaBute's and my first choice for the part - and fortunately the character is pregnant - so with a bit of judicious rewriting we're all delighted she'll be with us."

He continued: "I told her that I'd love her to do it and she just wept on my shoulder. She thought that was it. She was thrilled."

Piper and Fox, who married in 2007, are already parents to 3-year-old Winston.
