Missy Peregrym, who portrays the role of Special Agent Maggie Bell on the CBS series FBI, made a special announcement on Instagram. She and her husband, actor Tom Oakley, are expecting their second child together!
Missy shared an Instagram Reel video announcement that featured the couple’s son Otis, who will turn 2 next month. In the video, Otis walks up to Missy’s growing belly. At first, he begins rubbing his mom’s belly, and then starts to hit it, to which Missy laughed and groaned. “My best effort at an ‘adorable’ announcement,” she joked in the caption. “What I will always have time for, is this family, and I’m psyched that we are adding a new babe this summer.”
Missy and Tom tied the knot in Los Angeles in December of 2018. They welcomed Otis in March 2020. Last year, the Stick It star opened up with People magazine about welcoming her first child during quarantine. “”Any first-time mom going through this I have a lot of empathy for, because it’s already scary and you have no idea what you’re doing and then to not have the regular support. … They usually would be able to get together with other moms, with other children. I have a lot of space in my heart for [other new mothers]. When I see them in the street, I’m like, ‘How are you doing?'”
One of the benefits she enjoyed was being able to spend more quality time with her family. “I had no FOMO — no one was doing anything!” she shared.
Congratulations to Missy and Tom on the news of their second child! We wish them all the best as they prepare to welcome their new bundle of joy to the famiy.
