Now that The Office’s Jenna Fischer has conquered mothering one child, she’s ready to move on to the next level: 2 children! Jenna made the big announcement that she and her husband, Lee Kirk, are expecting last month, and the soon to be mom of two is excited for what the future holds for her growing family — especially since the next baby will be here soon!
“I’m almost in my third trimester, so we’re in the homestretch already,” Jenna told People at the QVC Red Carpet Style Event on Friday. “I know the news just came out, but it’s old news for us!”
But although Jenna’s back in the swing of being pregnant, it doesn’t mean she’s any less excited to meet her new son or daughter. “[I’m] looking forward to the excitement and challenge of adding another person,” the 39-year-old actress said. “Everyone’s telling me one plus one does not equal two. One plus one feels like four.”
Luckily, her sister’s been there and done that, so she often asks her for her opinion — especially when it comes to “[juggling] the needs of two children.” Her son, Weston, may be almost three, but we can imagine taking care of a toddler and a newborn isn't going to be easy.
And, of course, she can always turn to fellow Office co-stars who are also parents for advice, too: like John Krasinski, who just welcomed his first child with wife Emily Blunt, and BFF Angela Kinsey. Playdate, anyone?
Meanwhile, more acting jobs are not in the cards right now — in fact, it looks like The Office’s exit last May was perfecting timing for Jenna and her fam.
“I’m taking a good amount of time off right now to be a mom and grow my family, so I’m really just looking forward to getting to do that,” she said.
