Haylie Duff ''really wanted'' her second child to be a girl.

The 33-year-old actress is currently pregnant with her second child with partner Matt Rosenberg - who already have two-year-old daughter Ryan together - and after the pair revealed in February that they would be having a second daughter, Haylie has now admitted she's ''pumped'' with the news.

She said: ''Truthfully, we really wanted another girl. My sister and I have such a special relationship. Ryan could have that bond of sisters. We would have been happy if it was a boy, but we're pretty pumped that it's a girl.''

The 'Material Girls' actress - who is the older sister of actress Hillary Duff - admits she didn't want the sex of her child to be a surprise, as she was too ''anxious'' to find out.

She said: ''We found out it was a girl because I'm anxious and had to go do the blood test to tell me right away.''

Despite knowing they'll be having a girl, the couple - who began dating in 2012 - won't be picking out a name until after their tot is born.

Haylie revealed: ''Names are hard. We have a top choice name, but we're not committing until she's here because I feel like that's just bad luck.''

The 'Napoleon Dynamite' star recently asked her Twitter followers for remedies after she was left feeling sick during her pregnancy, and she now thinks her second tot is going to be a ''wild child'' because of the effect she's had on her body.

She told People magazine: ''It's all sinuses and heartburn basically. My first baby was like the trickster baby. She was so easy and my pregnancy was so easy with her. With this one I feel like I'm in for a wild child.

''I feel good. I'm excited that I'm getting towards the end and nervous about getting towards the end.''
