Amanda Peet is expecting her second child with her husband of three years, screenwriter David Benioff, Us reports.
In 2007, the couple welcomed daughter Frances “Frankie” Pen, whom Peet named after her mother, Penny.
The 37-year-old 2012 star has been quite outspoken about childhood vaccines. “Frankly, I feel that parents who don’t vaccinate their children are parasites.” This controversial statement was later followed by a personal apology although she still strongly supports childhood immunizations.
Peet recently said it’s important to take care of yourself in order to be a great parent:
You have to put your oxygen mask before you put on others’. It’s a good metaphor for parenting, but it’s really hard to do sometimes. A lot of women feel that if they’re exerting energy in different areas of their life or are really passionate about other things, it’s automatically detrimental to the child.”
Congratulations to the Peet-Benioff family!
