Mary Bruce and her husband Phil Levis are going to be parents for the second time.

Speaking with People in March 2021, the ABC News senior White House correspondent confirmed that she was expecting her second child, a baby girl, and showed off her baby bump.

Bruce, who already shares a 3-year-old son with her husband, shared that she was "absolutely thrilled" when she learned that she would be welcoming a daughter.

"My son is super excited to be a big brother and to show his sister all his toys," she said. "We just hope the enthusiasm sticks. He's even offering name suggestions."

The Washington, D.C. native also revealed that she covered the 2020 US Presidential election and took on a new role to cover the White House amidst the pandemic — and more importantly, while being pregnant.

"Never did I imagine I would be spending a full week in a Delaware parking lot with the Biden campaign reporting around the clock on every twist and turn as results came in (all without any coffee!)," Bruce said.

However, she and her family felt very fortunate and grateful to be living healthy and grow the family parallelly.

Birth of First Child

Bruce gave birth to her first child, a son, with her husband on June 24, 2018.

The ABC journalist, who had announced her pregnancy when she was one month due, shared an adorable picture of her son on Instagram to confirm the news.

Nearly 5 months later, she finally revealed the name of her son as Elvis through Instagram. In the picture uploaded on October 31, 2018, baby Elvis wore a full-sleeved white shirt with big black glasses.

Over these years, Bruce has actively been on Instagram and often shares pictures with her son, showing her love for him.

While announcing her second baby, Bruce also told People that she and her husband had always thought of having a second child.

"Three years seemed like a good age difference," she said.

Bruce and Levis took the wedding vows on September 7, 2013, in front of friends and family members. The couple reportedly met in 2017.

Although her husband's identity is quite private and does not have a social media handle, she often shows him through her Instagram.

Levis works as an associate vice president at PhRMA and is also a public affairs executive. He celebrates his birthday on Valentine’s Day every year.

On September 7, 2019, Bruce shared a picture of her wedding day, marking the completion of the sixth year of her marriage with Levis. "Six years! Each one better than the last," she captioned the post.
