LOS ANGELES -- Actress Amber Tamblyn says she is expecting a baby girl.
The 33-year-old actress wrote in an essay for Glamour magazine that she is “going to be a mother soon. I’m pregnant, with a daughter on the way.”
Tamblyn has been married to actor-comedian David Cross since 2012. This will be the first child for both.
Tamblyn’s essay about sexual harassment, motherhood and the possibility of a female president was published online Wednesday. In it, she wrote that we live in “a world built by and for men” and that she hopes her future daughter won’t have to deal with the kind of marginalization and sexual harassment past generations of women have faced.
Her announcement comes two weeks after Tamblyn wrote on Instagram that she was assaulted by an ex-boyfriend who grabbed her by the crotch and carried her out of a nightclub. Tamblyn wrote the post in response to remarks by Donald Trump made in 2005 in which he bragged about groping and kissing women.
Tamblyn starred in the “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” films and was nominated for an Emmy Award for “Joan of Arcadia.” Cross’ recent credits include the “Kung-Fu Panda” films, “Arrested Development” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.”
