Break out the pink baby blankets: Busy Philipps is having a girl! E! News confirms the Cougar Town star is expecting a daughter with screenwriter hubby Marc Silverstein.

Philipps first revealed the gender news to The Huffington Post at the Tribeca Film Festival in NYC where she gushed the entire family -- including the couple's four-year-old daughter Birdie -- is "really excited" about the baby on the way.

"My daughter is super-excited," she confessed. "She's actually incredibly helpful and she's four and a half.... So I think for right now it's OK, but we'll see what happens when the actual baby comes. I'm planning for that moment like, 'And when does she go back?' I know that will happen.'"

Too cute! And while we're sure Birdie will love being a big sister, it's safe to say the soon-to-be mother of two hasn't exactly enjoyed her pregnancy.

"This one hasn't been so relaxing," she recently admitted to E! News while adding that round two has been "harder."
