Kellie Martin is pregnant...again!

The Life Goes On actress reveals in an episode of Home & Family set to air Thursday that she and husband Keith Christian are expecting a second child. And that's not all she spills; Martin also dishes that she'll be welcoming another baby girl!

"Sit down, this is shocking," the 39-year-old actress warns the audience. "I am having a baby!"

Martin, who wears a flowing white top to cover up her baby bump, glows as she spills the beans on her exciting news. Also on hand to reveal her secret is her daughter Maggie, 8.

"I am five months, which turns out as 20 weeks," she explains. "I said that to my husband the other day, 'I'm 20 weeks. I'm five months pregnant!' He's like, 'You just realized that?' I'm like, 'I did the math.'"

Although there might be some sibling rivalry when Maggie and her future baby sister grow up, Maggie says she is more than excited to become a big sister! Because Maggie has been an only child for so long, Martin reveals she was a little concerned at first about breaking the news that there would be another child in the house in a little while.

"She took the news really, really well," says Martin. "I told her way earlier than I expected to because I was so sick that I didn't want her to think there was something wrong with Mommy."

Morning sickness just getting in the way of all her plans!

"We sat her down and we said, 'You are going to be a big sister,' and it was kind of silent for a second. Just the week before, she said, 'I love being an only child!' So, I was like, 'Oh, no!'"

Thankfully Maggie took it better than they expected! Their daughter has already picked out some stuffed animals that she's ready to hand down because she thinks "she might really like them."

Congratulations to the growing family!
