Girls star Jemima Kirke and her husband Michael Mosberg are expecting their second child together.

The actress confirmed her pregnancy to the New York Daily News at the afterparty for the New York premiere of Woody Allen's new film To Rome With Love.

A New York Daily News reporter said to Kirke: "Congratulations on your pregnancy", who replied "Thank you".

The couple are already parents to 10-month old daughter Rafaella.

Comedy sitcom Girls recently wrapped their first season, and is currently filming its second season since being renewed by HBO.

When asked if she would use "a potted plant or oversized handbag" to hide her growing belly, Kirke said: "Yeah, something like that."
