"I'm a little tired but feeling good," she told Jones magazine shortly after a photo shoot with her brother, musician George Byrne. "Everyone was very sweet on set today, and you always get a little bit more attention when you're pregnant, which is fabulous."
Byrne and Cannavale are also parents to 19-month-old son Rocco. Though the parents are established actors, Byrne said that she is open to her children's future decisions on whether or not they want to pursue the creative arts.
"I remember doing the film The Rage in Placid Lake years ago with Ben Lee, about the kid who rebelled against his bohemian parents and became an accountant," she said. "Maybe my kids will want to do something really different, like run a granola company or become accountants themselves."
“You have this huge responsibility you didn’t have before—there’s someone you have to keep alive! I also like to think Rocco has brought out better qualities in me,” Bryne said.
The Australian actress said that she has her own parents to thank for her parental intuition. "I was already becoming my parents, even before I had Rocco,” she said. “You know how that happens? One day, you’re like, ‘I’ve turned into my parents!’”
Though Byrne and Cannavale started dating in 2012, they have been known for keeping their personal lives relatively private, with the exception of a few family selfies posted on Cannavale's Instagram account—but it looks like this announcement was just too exciting to keep private, even for these two!
