When Katy Mixon isn’t busy delighting “American Housewife” fans as the oh-so-wonderfully-real Katie Otto, a mother hell-bent on raising her kids as normal as possible despite the trappings of their wealthy Westport, Connecticut, community, she’s playing mom to a 6-month-old.
And as she revealed, much to her surprise, she has another baby on the way.katyemixon/Instagram
In an interview with “Access Hollywood,” Mixon confirmed she’s expecting her second child, a girl, in May 2018. The actress said the news was a surprise as she just gave birth to her first child six months ago.
Mixon, 36, and fiancé, Breaux Greer, 41, welcomed son Kingston Saint Greer this past May, according to People.katyemixon/Instagram
Mixon called her second pregnancy “just the quickest situation ever,” telling “Access Hollywood” she discovered she was pregnant from a change in her breast milk:
Mixon: “I was nursing and the breast milk dried up. And it happened to be the situation that I’m pregnant again.”
Kit Hoover: “Were you shocked?”
Mixon: “Shocked. Honey couldn’t be more shocked. Didn’t know it was possible.”
According to Breastfeeding Basics, due to a woman’s hormonal changes during pregnancy, her breast milk supply will decrease as the pregnancy progresses. The change could be a dramatic or gradual decrease.katyemixon/Instagram
Mixon added that Greer, a four-time Olympian who holds the national record for javelin throwing, is “thrilled” with the news.
