The Grey’s Anatomy star and stepdaughter of Steven Spielberg is gearing up to give birth to her second child, and is only planning on taking two weeks’ maternity leave!

Jessica Capshaw looks like she’s about to pop! The actress, who already has a 3-year-old son, Luke Gavigan, showed up last week at the Healthy Child Healthy World Annual Gala in Los Angeles in a little black dress and sky-high heels! Jessica, 34, and her husband, Christopher Gavigan, the CEO of the Healthy Child Healthy World orgainzation, have been married since 2004.

The Grey’s Anatomy star, whose mom is Kate Capshaw and whose stepdad is Steven Spielberg, was an avid viewer of the show before she joined the cast. “I personally was a fan of Grey’s before I went there,” she has said. “So I run the risk of sounding — now that I get to be a part of the cast — braggy because I think it’s awesome!”

Jessica loves her job so much that she’ll only be written out of two episodes of Grey’s Anatomy, rather than take extended maternity leave.

“We’re basically playing it by ear,” the show’s producer Shonda Rhimes says. “If she needs more [than two episodes], she’ll let me know. She’s not a new mother; she’s done this before. She feels like she’s in great shape and will be physically ready to come back almost immediately. If she needs some more time, we’re going to give her more time.”

Wow, two weeks maternity leave? That’s crazy!
