Cougar Town’s Busy Philipps had an unconventional way of announcing her second pregnancy. She announced it on Twitter by sharing a positive pregnancy test.
Philipps, who is due in June, attended the 19th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday and talked about why she decided to announce her pregnancy the way that she did.
“I love Twitter because…it’s your voice, it’s instant access to your fans and your friends. I thought that there is no better way. I didn’t want people to think that I was just getting chubby,” she said during E!’s Live from the Red Carpet. “I was excited to share the news.”
Busy says that it wasn’t just fans who found out about her pregnancy on Twitter. Even some of her friends found out about her pregnancy via tweet.
“Some of my friends, yeah,” she said. “I think some of my friends found out via Twitter.”
That’s not how her husband found out, though. She assured, “He already knew.”
Busy Philipps is married to Marc Silverstein. They have a 4-year-old daughter, Birdie, who is very excited about being a big sister.
"My daughter is very excited to be a big sister and it’s actually something that she has asked for, for quite some time," she told The Huffington Post recently.
