Alexa PenaVega is "over" her second pregnancy
The 'Spy Kids' star announced that she is expecting another child with her husband Carlos PenaVega in January, and the actress - who already has two-year-old son Ocean with the 'Big Time Rush' actor - has admitted that although she loves "feeling" her unborn tot, a boy, "move" inside her tummy, the rest of the experience of being pregnant isn't as thrilling as the first time round

She continued: "It’s not because this pregnancy is so difficult, but I think the excitement of being pregnant the first time around, even nausea, it’s like, 'Oh, my gosh. I’m nauseous. This is what happens when you’re pregnant.' It’s exciting."
She clarified: "Don’t get me wrong. Pregnancy is beautiful. I love feeling him move, I love the excitement of being pregnant, but it’s definitely different the second time around because you’ve done it before.
"So a lot of those brand new, first-time feelings are gone."
The couple admitted they were "beyond excited" to expand their family when they announced the news.
Sharing a photo of herself holding a positive pregnancy test while next to her smiling husband and sleeping son, the 30-year-old actress wrote on Instagram at the start of the year: "Holy Moly!!! Guys!!! We are having another baby!!!! Do we wake Ocean up and tell him??!! Beyond blessed and excited to continue growing this family!!! Get ready for a whole new set of adventures!!! #ClearblueConfirmed #ClearbluePartner (sic)"
Carlos, 29, also took to social media to express his excitement and posted a snap of the couple giving each other a peck on the lips while he holds a positive pregnancy test and a picture of the baby's scan.
He captioned the image, he said: "It's HAPPENING... AGAIN! WE'RE HAVING ANOTHER BABY!!! 2019 another PenaVega is joining the family!
"This year we will officially be able to say we have 'kids'! Our minds are blown and we are beyond blessed and excited for our growing family!!! Let the journey begin!!! #ClearbluePartner #ClearblueConfirmed (sic)"
