Bryce is the daughter of Director Ryan Howard and is married to ‘Fringe’ star, actor Seth Gabel since 2006. This will be the second child for the couple.
Bryce gave birth to their first child in 2006 and has written about her struggle with postpartum depression after her first son’s birth.
“Before Theo was born, I had been in good humor about my 80-pound weight gain, but I was now mortified by it. I felt I was failing at breast feeding. My house was a mess. I believed I was a terrible dog owner. I was certain I was an awful actress.”
With the support of family and friends, Howard sought professional treatment. She also read Brooke Shields’ Down Came the Rain, which she described as “a revelation.”
“Do I wish I had never endured postpartum depression? Absolutely,” wrote the Howard. “I…feel deep gratitude for those who stood by me, for the lesson that we must never be afraid to ask for help.”
Congrats to Bryce on her baby news, and for talking about her postpartum so others can get through the difficult time too.
