"Up In The Air" star Vera Farmiga is pregnant with her second child.
The actress, who gave birth to baby Finn just before starting work on "Up in the Air" in 2009, is due in October, according to In Touch magazine.
The baby news has forced Farmiga, who is married to Renn Hawkey, to give up a role as Gerard Butler's wife in upcoming movie "Machine Gun Preacher."
An insider tells the publication, "The role would have meant traveling to Africa this summer, but because her baby is due in the fall, she would have been too far along to make the trip."
Farmiga is still planning to continue with plans to make her directorial debut this year by turning born-again Christian Carolyn Briggs' memoir, "This Dark World: A Memoir of Salvation Found and Lost," into a movie. The adaptation will be called "Higher Ground."
