Amy Huberman, wife of Irish rugby hero Brian O'Driscoll has confirmed the couple are expecting baby number two.

The actor and other half of the retired Ireland and Leinster legend revealed to the Herald that the couple will welcome the new arrival before Christmas, but are keeping the sex of the baby a surprise.

"I'm due in November," she said. "We haven't learnt the sex yet so we want it to be a surprise.

"I managed to keep it under wraps for so long - we thought we'd just get on with it."

Amy revealed the big news at the launch of comedian pal David O'Doherty's latest book, Danger is Everywhere.

The 34-year-old said that she and O'Driscoll are overjoyed with the news that they are to become parents once again. They already have a one-year-old daughter, Sadie.

"It's lovely timing with Brian finishing, it's exciting and I'm really excited for Sadie as well," she said.

"She doesn't understand at all though, not a bit. It'll be a new thing for her - I'm sure she'll understand by November, she'll be well up to speed.

"Brian is feeling very excited - so it's all change. Two kids, it sounds so responsible."

Huberman and O'Driscoll married four years ago last July and welcomed their first child in February 2013.

She sparked speculation of another pregnancy last month, when she arrived to an opening at The Gate Theatre in Dublin and posed for pictures covering her stomach with the production programme.

It has been a busy summer for the starlet. An IFTA winner, the Threesome actress is currently taking a break from the screen to develop a comedy for an Irish production company. She handed in her first draft of the script in August.

"I'm just finished the writing project so I feel like I can relax now for a while," the blonde said. "It was a really good experience, a new process for me and different to writing books."
