Actress Rebecca Gayheart says taking care of her 17-month-old daughter, Billie Beatrice, is making her second pregnancy go by a lot faster.


"What's made it different is that I'm very focused on Billie ... so I'm not very focused on [the pregnancy]. I'm not as neurotic," the expectant mom, 40, told "[With Billie] I was micromanaging everything I was eating and every little symptom I was feeling. And this pregnancy I just know everything's okay."

Gayheart is planning to continue her stress-free streak once her second child with husband Eric Dane arrives this winter. "Hopefully, I'll be like that with the second baby, as well," she explained. "Because the first baby ... you just want to do it all perfectly. And you can't."

Although Gayheart is happy to be adding to her family, she also revealed this pregnancy will most likely be her last, and she'll wait to return to work. "I'll probably wait until six months after this baby's born (to work). I am anxious to go back to work because it's been awhile for me now... I need a job!" she said.

But she will no doubt also have those working mom guilt pangs. "When I'm with [Billie] there's nowhere else in the world I want to be. Because I'm where I'm supposed to be."
