Jodie Foster has confirmed to gossip columnist Liz Smith that she is pregnant with her second child, due in November, Smith writes in her Tuesday column. Foster, 38, already has a son, Charlie, 2, by a father whom the actress has never publicly identified. "My sisters and I are all Scorpios," Foster told Smith, "so we have a soft spot for the birth date." Smith inquired whether or not Charlie's father is also the dad of this latest addition to the Foster household. "I won't answer that," replied Jodie, who did admit to being into "all the health foods, yoga and the rest of it" for her pregnancy. "I enjoyed being pregnant with Charlie," said Foster, who in June wraps up shooting the movie "The Panic Room" (in which she replaced an injured Nicole Kidman), "and I look forward to this experience again."
