"Well, you, know... I am five months pregnant today. I feel good," Budig said in making her announcement on her daily lifestyle show, the Better Show. "I'm a lot more nervous than I thought I'd be!"
Budig later shared on Twitter that she and her husband will not be finding out the sex of the baby in advance.
Shortly after making the announcement, Budig and co-host JD Roberto were learning some dance movies from Golden Globe- and Emmy-winning actress/choreographer/director Debbie Allen.
The Better Show focuses on easy recipes and low-cost meals, beauty breakthroughs, money matters, health and wellness, sex, decorating, and other topics -- which undoubtedly will now include a host of parenting topics -- that affect families and relationships.
Budig joined All My Children in 1999 after a three-year run as Michelle Bauer on CBS's Guiding Light. Budig remained with AMC off and on through the show's final episode on ABC in September 2011. Budig has twice earned Outstanding Supporting Actress nominations at the Daytime Emmys.
