Oscar winner Mira Sorvino and her rocker husband CHRIS BACKUS are celebrating the New Year in style with news of a second baby.

The couple, who wed in June 2004, are expecting a brother or sister for their daughter MATTEA ANGEL this summer (06).

It's been an interesting start of 2006 for the actress - she was sworn in as an honorary deputy sheriff in Pennsylvania last week (27DEC05) and recently garnered a Golden Globe Awards nomination for her role in harrowing miniseries HUMAN TRAFFICKING.
