Elena Lycha’s wife is expecting another girl.
The actor from “Downton Abbey: A New Era” recently announced that his wife Jessica Blair Herman is expecting a second child, and now he has confirmed that the child – due in late September, early October – will become a daughter.
Although Allen did not directly share sex, he teased at the New York premiere of “Downton Abbey: A New Era”: “If you see that my wife and I are dressed, you have the key.”
The 40-year-old actor was in a pink jacket, and his 35-year-old wife, who gave birth to their first daughter in 2020, wore a shiny pink dress a year after they married.
Allen jokingly added to the column on the sixth page of the New York Post: “I will be far superior.”
A few months after the birth of his first child, the Bohemian Rhapsody actor admitted that he was upset that his parents, who live in Dublin, could not meet their granddaughter because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
He said: “This thing never seems to end, and that’s the problem.
“My parents have not yet met my daughter, which is killing me and killing them even more.
“One of the reasons we starred in this film was we were going to return as a family, but then in Ireland the cases were outrageous.
“We were genuinely worried not so much about our daughter as about when Jess [his wife] fell ill, and I was at work, as if that job, we would have no one to take care of her or our baby.
Allen had previously acknowledged that his siblings are exemplary parents for their children, and so “the bar is set very high” for him and Jessica “to be just as good parents”.
Speaking before the birth of his eldest daughter, he said: “All my siblings are parents and they are a great example of parents and the bar is set very high to be good parents.”
