Pregnant actress Bryce Dallas Howard is desperate to take time out of her acting career to learn how to be the perfect housewife. The 25-year-old redhead married long-term love, actor SETH GABEL, in June (06) and admits he has looked after the house while she has been busy making Hollywood blockbusters such as The Village and the forthcoming Spider-Man 3. And now Howard, who is expecting the couple's first child in January (07), can't wait to get acquainted with the kitchenware. She says, "He's been incredibly patient and let me go to work during the day and come home and work on my own at night so now I need to start taking care of him in a way that a wife would take care of her husband. "So I'm going to start taking cooking lessons so I can cook for him."
