It’s official. Actress Constance Wu posted a photo on her Instagram Stories Tuesday revealing she’s pregnant.
Speculation became rampant less than a week ago when paparazzi captured photos of her with what is now confirmed to be a baby bump.
“Bun in the oven. Filipinese baby #2 coming soon,” she wrote in her post, reported People.
This will be her second child. The Hustlers actress gave birth to a daughter in August 2020 with musician/songwriter Ryan Kattner, but kept the news under wraps until the following year.
Wu has had an up and down relationship with social media. She went on a social media blackout after many in the public attacked her for expressing frustration that Fresh Off the Boat had been renewed for a sixth season.
She would later explain that the renewal would mean she would have to give up a passion project due to the schedule conflict.
She temporarily shut down her social media accounts due to the backlash, only to reopen them and reveal last year that she had contemplated suicide due to the adverse reaction from fans.
She also released a book in the fall titled Making the Scene that a producer on Fresh Off the Boat sexually harassed her.
“I did not want to sully the reputation of the one show we had representing us (Asian Americans),” said Wu explaining why she didn’t speak up earlier. “Therefore I kept my mouth shut for a real long time about a lot of sexual harassment and intimidation that I received the first two seasons of the show.”
She made the comments during the Atlantic Festival in September.
She told about the producer “touching my crotch and then me saying no. Don’t do that. Finally saying no and then he got mad. Right after he did that, he touched a less provocative place,” pointing to her arms. “He grabbed like the back of my tricep. Jiggled it around and I was like, what are you doing?”
Wu has not said when her newest family addition is due.
She did share in October to People that her now 2-year-old daughter “knows how to command Alexa to play a song” and loves to dance.
“She’ll take anyone’s hand, pull them into the middle of the room and say ‘Dance!’ “
