The 36-year-old actress and her musician husband Renn Hawkey have confirmed Vera is expecting a baby in September. The new arrival will be the couple`s secondchild.
Vera was glowing when she announced the news on the red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art`s Costume Institute Gala in New York City on Monday night. She said she had been experiencing morning sickness earlier in the pregnancy, but is now feeling great.
"I-m past the first trimester, so I`m not feeling sick anymore," she gushed to USA Today newspaper.
Vera and Renn have a 15-month-old son, Fynn. The baby was born just six weeks before Vera shot her Oscar-nominated performance in Up In the Air, opposite George Clooney.
The actress has revealed she wore such tight control underwear while filming the movie she was often left breathless, but didn`t mind as she was keen to look her best on screen.
