Melissa Joan Hart of Sabrina the Teenage Witch fame is now expecting her third child.
“Since I was little, I knew that I wanted to have children,” said Hart of becoming a mother, “I’m the oldest of eight kids, and I have always liked the idea of a big family. I love my siblings, and I loved growing up with all of them. Having a big family has always been very important to me, and I would hate for my kids to not be able to experience that. Mark and I would like to have more eventually,” she told Parents.com.
The actress, currently seen on ABC Family’s Melissa and Joey alongside fellow childhood-star alum Joey Lawrence, turns 36 on Wednesday, and recently confirmed that she is expecting her third child with husband Mark Wilkerson.
“(Early) Happy Birthday to me! And baby makes 3!” she shared via her Twitter account on Tuesday, also sharing a photo of her pregnant self surrounded by her two boys.
Hart and husband Wilkerson are already parents to 4-year-old Braydon Hart and 6-year-old Mason Walter. Of her two boys and her role as a mother, Hart said, “I adore my boys to pieces! And if that’s all God grants me, I’m fine. But I know myself well enough to know that I’m going to want another baby,” back in 2009. Well, it looks like God has granted the couple another chance at a child, maybe a girl to round out the family.
On that note, Hart is just happy to be having a child again. “It’s not necessarily that I want girls. It’s because I just know I want more babies,” she said.
Hart’s show, Melissa & Joey will premiere for its second season on May 30 at 8 p.m. on ABC Family.
