Anne Hathaway has announced she is pregnant with her second child.

The 36-year-old shared her happy news on Instagram on Wednesday evening, with a black-and-white mirror selfie that showed her baby bump.

“It’s not for a movie…#2,” she jokingly captioned the photo, before adding:

“⁣All kidding aside, for everyone going through infertility and conception hell, please know it was not a straight line to either of my pregnancies.

“Sending you extra love.”

The Oceans 8 star is already mum to son Jonathan Rosebanks, who she welcomed in 2016, with husband Adam Shulman.

Earlier this year, she spoke about how Kate Middleton and Prince William had influenced her parenting style in a big way.

In February, she spoke to The Sunday Times [via PEOPLEabout raising their little boy, and how she had been inspired by Kate Middleton and Prince William’s parenting style.

She said:

“They get down on the child’s level and speak to them eye to eye to make their child feel empowered.

“I thought that was really cool. I started doing that with Jonathan.”

The move is called active listening – and can have a massive impact on children.

Prince William and Kate are often seen crouching down to talk to their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte (and, later on, we’d imagine they’ll do they same with Prince Louis).

The Center for Parenting Education calls active listening “the single most important skill you can have in your parenting ‘tool belt'” – as it shows the child you are giving them your undivided attention; listening and understanding everything they are saying

According to experts, the trick is simple but effective – and can boost self-esteem in a  powerful way.
