Dave Annable’s wife, Odette Annable, has announced that she is pregnant.
The ‘Brothers and Sisters’ star’s wife confirmed the happy news of Mother’s Day in the US on Sunday (08.05.22) and revealed it had been a ‘really long journey’ to have the baby number two.
The couple filmed a video which showed them telling their six-year-old daughter Charlie that she was going to be a big sister.
Dave shared the post on Instagram, writing, “Guess it’s not traditional to give your child a gift on Mother’s Day. *Exceptions apply.
“What a great way to celebrate @odetteannable, mom-to-be of 2. We sure know Charlie is excited. (sic)”
Odette, 36, added on her own page: “It’s been a very long journey to get here, but we’re here and we’re thrilled and couldn’t be more grateful. A new chapter begins. A celebration of the very special mothers indeed.”

There is no greater pain…
In the clip, Charlie is seen finding an ultrasound image recorded on a doll, with Dave explaining to him, “We took this picture today. It’s inside mommy’s belly.”
In her own post, Odette told fans about her painful journey to becoming mums again, revealing that the couple underwent fertility treatment and suffered three devastating miscarriages.
In an Instagram Story post, she explained, “3 miscarriages, failed IUI, failed IVF.
“It was an emotional race, but we kept going and now we’re here.”
Later, she added a photo of her baby bump and sent her thoughts to all the other women who have had similar experiences.
Odette wrote: “Thank you for all the baby love. Glad to share with you all.
“To all the moms out there – I see you. To everyone who has lost their mother – my heart is with you. And to everyone going through infertility – I am here for you! I will be sharing as many resources as I know and please know that you are not alone.”
The couple met on the set of “Brothers and Sisters” when Odette joined the character Dave and married in 2010.
