Newsoms expecting second child

Along with starting a new job in 2011, 42-year-old Mayor Gavin Newsom is gearing up for another big life change — the birth of his second child.

Newsom, California’s lieutenant governor starting next month, and his actress wife Jennifer Seibel Newsom, 36, are expecting a boy June 19, according to news reports published on Christmas Eve.

The Newsoms’ first child, daughter Montana, was born in September 2009. The birth was a highly-publicized event, yet the Newsoms kept news of the pregnancy a highly guarded secret.

They are being a little less secretive this time. Seibel Newsom reportedly leaked the news to a columnist. On Thursday, Newsom all but confirmed the pregnancy during an interview with KGO Radio host Ron Owens.

“Anything good, personal you want to announce?” Owens asked.

Newsom refused to say for sure.

“I’m going to do it in an appropriate way,” Newsom said.

Requests for comment from the Mayor’s Office were not immediately returned.
