Philipps announced her pregnancy in December when she posted a photo of her positive pregnancy test on Twitter. In April, she told The Huffington Post she was having another girl and shared that Birdie was ready – sort of – for her little sister.

“My daughter is super excited,” the actress said. “She’s actually incredibly helpful and … she’s really understanding things, when I say like, ‘Mom can’t carry you right now because the baby in her tummy is pressing down on her bladder!’ She understands what that means and she’s cool with it.”

But she’s not exactly expecting to make her the full-time nanny anytime soon.

“We’ll see what happens when the actual baby comes,” Philipps added. “I’m planning for that moment like, ‘And when does she go back?’ I know that will happen.”

Hopefully not anytime soon!
