The filmmaker-actress confirmed on 'The Tonight Show' that she has another baby on the way.

Greta Gerwig is gearing up to add a new title to her resume: mom of two!

The three-time Oscar nominee confirmed on Thursday's episode of The Tonight Show that she is pregnant. This marks the second youngster for the Barbie director and her partner, fellow filmmaker Noah Baumbach. The couple welcomed their first child, a son named Harold, in 2019. Baumbach is also dad to son Rohmer with ex-wife Jennifer Jason Leigh.

Gerwig explained to host Jimmy Fallon that she expected the news to come out during a previous recent public appearance. "I wore something that I thought everyone would be so interested to know that I was going to have another child," she said, "and nobody cared." 

As she quipped, "It didn't get reported on, which turns out nobody’s paying attention to you."

While the news is officially out, it's unclear if big brother-to-be Harold has caught on just yet. 

"It's hard to know what a three year old makes of things that aren’t existent yet, in front of him," she said. "He's beautifully sophisticated in some ways and then, in other ways, he asked what language do they speak in New Jersey."

Here's hoping his younger sibling at least likes bubbles. "He loves bubbles," Gerwig said of her son. "He gets very sad when the bubbles go away and he starts welling up."

As she recalled, "He looked at me and he said, 'That’s the nature of bubbles.'"
