Danielle Fishel, who gained popularity for her role as Topanga Lawrence-Matthews in the teen sitcom Boy Meets World and its successor Girl Meets World, turned 40 last May 5th. She marked her recent birthday by announcing that she’s expecting his second child with her husband Jensen Karp.

“I couldn’t be more grateful to enter my 40’s with my amazing husband and son, excitedly expecting the arrival of baby boy #2,” Fishel wrote on Instagram, along with a photo of her cradling her baby bump. “I’ve never been more excited or hopeful for the next decade of my life. I had a beautiful childhood, teenage years I still dream about, my 20’s were insane (and mostly miserable) and my 30’s brought me lows and highs but eventually I leveled out to a place of security. Security in who I am, what I believe, and with whom I want to spend precious time.”
