Congratulations are in order for Ashley Tisdale and her husband, Christopher French. The actress announced that she's pregnant with her second child with an announcement on Instagram that showed her posing with her growing bump on display. Tisdale, who is 38, is already mother to a 3-year-old daughter named Jupiter Iris.

"We can’t wait to meet you 💫," she wrote in the caption. In the photo, she wears an open button-up shirt paired with slouchy ripped jeans. She's also joined by her husband in one shot and her daughter in another, with each snapshot showing the family members bathed in glowing, golden-hour light.

After the birth of her first child, Jupiter, Tisdale opened up about her struggle with diastasis recti, which occurs when the large abdominal muscles separate post-pregnancy. "It hasn't been easy," she wrote on Instagram in August 2021. "But doing the right workouts I have been able to close the gap! Thankful for my Pilates and yoga practices that have gotten me here!"

Shortly after, Tisdale commemorated her very first Mother's Day with a touching message on Instagram.

"To be a mom, you don't know how hard it is until you become one. Mothers you are truly goddesses and single moms you are my superheroes," she shared. "The past 6 weeks have been such a blessing. Jupiter you are everything and more."

In a move that can only be evidence that we're all in this together, Tisdale's second pregnancy comes just as her High School Musical co-star Vanessa Hudgens is set to welcome her first child. Hudgens debuted her baby bump and made headlines when she arrived at the 2024 Oscars red carpet, cradling her growing belly. That was enough to break the internet, but she followed the big news up with a sheer maternity look at the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party. 

Kaycee Stroh, who played Martha Cox in the beloved Disney Channel films, welcomed her first daughter, Zetta, with her husband, Ben Higginson, in May 2013. The couple welcomed its second daughter, Lettie, two years later.
