Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard became the proud parents of their second baby girl a week and a half ago, a rep for Gyllenhaal confirmed today.
Born April 19 in New York, the parents named their daughter Gloria Ray.
Gyllenhaal, 34, and Sarsgaard, 41, are already parents to daughter Ramona, 5. Together since 2002, the couple tied the knot in Brindisi, Italy, in 2009.
Since first becoming a mother in 2006, Gyllenhaal, like so many other working moms, says she’s struggled to balance her personal and professional life.
“I had been so focused on Ramona and she’s been everything to me, but I’m also an actress,” she said recently. “It’s not possible to do it perfectly.”
Sarsgaard, meanwhile, had another set of concerns.
“I’ve seen kids with siblings – I don’t have any, so I don’t know – but they generally go for about five minutes, ‘Oh, cool! Anyway, what are we going to do now? Can we return it?’ I think it gets boring quickly, at first, and it takes them awhile to bond.”
We have a feeling Ramona will manage. Congrats!
