Nice Work If You Can Get It star Kelli O’Hara is expecting a little bundle of joy—and no, it’s not a bottle of moonshine! The actress, who plays bootlegger Billie Bendix in the hit Gershwin tuner, is pregnant with her second child with her husband, musician and actor Greg Naughton. The couple have not revealed a due date (or possible baby names!) at this time.
“We are over the moon to add to our family,” O’Hara said in a statement. And we’re over the moon that this talented family is passing their stellar genes on to the next generation!
Fresh from her run as Julie Jordan in the New York Philharmonic production of Carousel, O’Hara will finish up her run in Nice Work on March 24. Beginning May 8, she will lead the Playwrights Horizons production of Far From Heaven. In addition to Nice Work, O’Hara garnered Tony nominations for South Pacific, The Pajama Game and The Light in the Piazza. Her additional Broadway credits include Dracula, the Musical, Sweet Smell of Success, Follies and Jekyll & Hyde.
