People magazine reported that the Unforgettable actress is six months along in her pregnancy and she's ready to share the news with the world.
On an episode of The View to air on Friday she said, "I'm so happy. I'm hoping to get all of the privileges now of a real pregnant person. I want to be respected and given lots of royal treatment."
The other reason to break the happy news was to explain why her body was changing so rapidly.
"I haven't told anyone yet, so people just think I have enormous boobs," she joked. "I was like 'I wonder if they think I went and got a boob job?'"
This is the couple's second child together. Montgomery and Sanford already have a daughter, Violet Grace, and the actress has a son, Jackson, 6, from her previous relationship with Adam Kaufman. The CBS star's husband is a Microsoft executive who has two kids from his first marriage — daughter Haley, 11, and son Braydon, 8.
The kids don't seem very excited by the new fall arrival.
Montgomery explained, "With Violet, they were all really, really excited and then they realized that babies don't do all that much."
The 39-year-old actress is just getting out of the morning sickness stage and enjoying her favorite meal, Chinese duck noodles. Otherwise, she's doing her best to stay in shape during the pregnancy.
She shared, "With Jackson, I gained 83 pounds. This one, I'm working out and really trying hard. Not too many doughnuts and Ding Dongs and Twinkies — all the things I wish I could eat and that as soon as I'm not an actress I will eat for the rest of my life."
Congratulations, Poppy and Shawn!
