Alba announces second pregnancy

Jessica Alba has announced she is pregnant with her second child.

The Little Fockers actress, who presented a best supporting actor award to an absent Geoffrey Rush at the Baftas, hid her baby bump with a blue flowing Versace gown at the star-studded ceremony.

"It's been a while since I've been on Facebook and I thought I'd drop by to let you all in on some exciting news - Honor is going to be a Big Sister!" she wrote on the social networking site.

Jessica and film producer husband Cash Warren welcomed their first child Honor in June 2008.

She added: "Cash and I are thrilled and wanted to share the news directly with you so you didn't hear about it somewhere else.

"I appreciated all of the love and support you all gave me during my first pregnancy and will definitely appreciate it again this time around. Have a great day!"

The 29-year-old received messages from her Twitter friends, including Good Charlotte bandmembers Benji and Joel Madden.

"Congrats you two - some of the best parents around. Happy for you guys!! Another superhuman on its way!!!" wrote Joel.

Benji added: "You sure do make beautiful babies! Uncle Benj is stoked!"

Jessica later wrote: " I can't thank you enough for all of the wonderful messages you sent me today. They really mean a lot to me."
