Former Law & Order and Women's Murder Club star Angie Harmon announced Wednesday that she and husband Jason Sehorn are expecting a third child.

"[They] are thrilled to announce that they are expecting their third child," the actress' rep told Us. "The couple originally denied reports that they were pregnant in an attempt to take back the right to release the joyous news themselves."

Harmon and former NFL star Sehorn are parents to daughters Finley, 4, and Avery, 3. Harmon is reportedly hoping for a boy this time around. - Adam Bryant
