Actress Anne Hathaway is pregnant with her second child with husband Adam Shulman. The Hustle star announced the good news on Instagram on Wednesday. She posted a black and white selfie showing off her baby bump, with the caption “It’s not for a movie… #2.”

Hathaway also used the opportunity to show her support for women struggling with infertility.

“All kidding aside, for everyone going through infertility and conception hell, please know it was not a straight line to either of my pregnancies,” she wrote. “Sending you extra love.”

Although Hathaway did not share any details about her experience of infertility, many fans, some of whom might also have experienced infertility and conception difficulties, praised her for being open about it.

Hathaway and husband Adam Shulman welcomed their first child Jonathan Robesbanks in March 2016.

After giving birth to Jonathan, Hathaway commented on Instagram about her struggle to regain her post-baby shape.

“Love what you have been given,” she wrote. “There is no shame in gaining weight during pregnancy (or ever). There is no shame if it takes longer than you think it will to lose the weight (if you want to lose it at all).
