Christina Ricci has surprised fans by revealing that she is pregnant with her second child.
The happy news comes just months after the actress was granted a restraining order against estranged husband James Heerdegen, amid allegations of domestic violence.
Ricci, 41, made the announcement that she is expecting a baby on Tuesday with a sonogram picture posted to her Instagram account, along with the caption, ‘Life keeps getting better.’
Her hairstylist Mark Hampton implied he is the father of the child by posting his own series of sonogram snaps with a similar caption. Hampton replied to a series of well wishes, one where he replied: ‘daddy shark do do do do do do.’

Ricci and Hampton appear to have gotten close this past year, working on a number of shoots together. Often, Ricci has left a series of heart emojis under pictures of herself that Hampton has posted.
The star is already mother to six-year-old son Frederick ‘Freddie’ Heerdegen – who was born in 2014 – and who she shares with her ex James.
In April this year, Ricci and her estranged husband reached a custody arrangement after their contentious split prompted accusations of abuse from both sides.
The arrangement was submitted to the Los Angeles County Superior Court in May, according to reports at the time.

The agreement favored Ricci, allowing the actress custody of their son after she relocates to Vancouver, Canada to film a new project, with Heerdegen getting visitation rights.
Ricci also agreed to pay ‘reasonable costs for travel and accommodations,’ which include ‘economy airfare’ for her ex. She will also get to choose where he stays during his visitation trips.
The Addams Family star was granted a restraining order against Heerdegen in January. He attempted to obtain his own restraining order later that month but was denied.
Heerdegen made shocking accusations while filing for a temporary restraining order, claiming his ex abuses alcohol and prescription drugs, making her a danger to their young son.
He also claimed he had to check their son’s bottles of breast milk for fear of it being contaminated with alcohol she drank the night before.
His filing came just days after Ricci accused her estranged husband of physically abusing her.
She said she had to hide knives in the house because she feared Heerdegen could kill her after he allegedly said he would only feel sorry for her if she was ‘dismembered into small pieces’.
A judge granted Ricci a domestic violence restraining order against Heerdegen in early January, six months after she filed for divorce.
Ricci and Heerdegen were married on October 26, 2013, they welcomed their son together the following year.
