Amber has been married to actor-writer David Cross since 2012. This will be the first child for both.

Her essay about sexual harassment, motherhood and the possibility of a female president was published online on Wednesday.

In it, she writes that we live in "a world built by and for men" and that she hopes her future daughter won't have to deal with the kind of marginalisation and sexual harassment past generations of women have faced.

Her announcement comes two weeks after Amber wrote on Instagram that she was assaulted by an ex-boyfriend who grabbed her by the crotch and carried her out of a nightclub. She wrote the post in response to remarks by Donald Trump made in 2005 in which he bragged about groping and kissing women.

She starred in the Sisterhood Of The Travelling Pants films and was nominated for an Emmy Award for Joan Of Arcadia. David's recent credits include Kung-Fu Panda 3 and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
