Doesn’t it seem that when a celebrity – who’s been kind of off-the-radar for awhile – stars in a few good movies all at once, at the tail-end of their whirlwind publicity pounce they end up having babies with their S.O.’s? I think that’s what’s going on here.

Jason Bateman and his wife, Amanda Anka (yes, the fabulous Paul Anka‘s daughter), have confirmed that their expecting their second child, and it’s another girl. The couple already has a 4 1/2 year-old daughter named Francesca.

Also, what’s with the baby boom of girls in Hollywood lately? Something in the water, perhaps? I mean, with the exception of Natalie Portman, it seems like every baby born in the past few months (and every expecting mom expecting) are girls.

Congratulations to the family!
