Amber Tamblyn is about to be a mommy!

The Sisterhood of the Traveling pants actress is joining her former co-star Blake Lively in the parenting realm as she confirmed she's expecting her first child with husband David Cross.

The actress decided to share the news in an Op-Ed piece she wrote for Glamour magazine on Wednesday.

While discussing her traumatic run-in with an abusive ex-boyfriend—which she revealed in an open letter earlier this month following the release of Donald Trump's controversial comments about groping women—she explained, "I've been thinking about motherhood a lot lately. What it means to be one, what it means to have one, what it means to know one, what it means to make decisions as one and have conversations as one."

She revealed that she is currently expecting, explaining, "Motherhood has been heavily on my mind because I am going to be a mother soon. I'm pregnant, with a daughter on the way."

She expressed her concern over the future of our country and how this election will affect her child. "I think constantly about the world I am bringing her into," she said, "How much do I have to do, as a daughter and a soon-to-be mother, to change not just the conversation about how women are seen, but the language with which conversations are spoken in?"

Tamblyn then encouraged readers to take a second to think about the way in which they perceive Hillary Clinton.

"This is not a think piece asking you to reconsider Hillary Clinton's voting record," she explained. "I am asking you to reconsider the world in which Hillary Clinton has had to vote. I am not asking you to rethink a woman. I am asking you to rethink women, period."

She concluded, "After I'm done writing this, I'll go back to my desk and fill out my absentee ballot. I'll be voting for more than just a woman; I'll be voting for a revolutionary idea. I'll be voting for a future for my daughter where conversations about our bodies and our lives are broader than what value they have for men. A future where being a mother is less about warning our daughters about our sons and is instead lifting them up to their greatest potential."
