The former Dancing With The Stars contestant and host of American Gladiator is pregnant with her second baby!

Laila Ali shared her wonderful news via video on People Magazine this morning! “I am pregnant again! I’m three months, and I’m so excited, my family is excited,” says Laila. “I’m hoping it’s a girl this time!”

This will be the second child for Laila, 32, and her husband Curtis Conway, 39, who have a 2- year-old son Curtis Jr., aka CJ.

“I’ve noticed I’m putting on weight faster this time, I started showing sooner,” she says. “Staying fit is a challenge, even if you are a former world-class athlete such as myself, because you just don’t have the energy that you used to have. Also, I have to hold myself back because I want to work harder than I’m able to.”

Miranda Kerr is expecting her first baby!

Laila, who is a former professional boxer like her legendary dad Muhammad Ali, is strict when it comes to nutrition during pregnancy. “Pregnancy isn’t ‘I can eat whatever I want,’ because you have to remember you’re going to be stuck with a lot of that weight afterwards that you need to try to get off. So I don’t recommend ‘grubbing,’” Laila says.

But, the mommy, who is due in April 2011, has already succumbed to some of her pregnancy cravings! “I have cravings all the time, even when I’m not pregnant. I made a strawberry shortcake last night. It was great.”

Congratulations on the wonderful news Laila and Curtis!
