Josie Maran is expecting her second child with longtime boyfriend, Iranian American photographer Ali Alborzi, the model announced on Tuesday.

"Yes, it's true! I'm having baby no. 2! So thrilled!" Maran wrote on Twitter on January 17.

Maran, 33, and Alborzi have one daughter, 5-year-old Rumi Joon, who was named after the Persian mystic poet and philosopher Rumi.

"I've learned a lot about myself by watching Rumi Joon grow up," Maran told People magazine. "Just seeing her smile makes me realize that being happy is the ultimate beauty secret, and I can't wait to welcome this new addition to my family."

Maran is only a few months in, but she is already preparing for the new addition, who is due in July.

"I've already gotten back into prenatal yoga, and I'm just bracing myself for the weird food cravings to kick in -- last time it was chocolate ice cream with pickles, so who knows what to expect this time!"

In addition to modeling, Maran has appeared in several films including "Van Helsing," "Little Black Book" and "The Aviator." She also appeared on "Dancing With The Stars" in 2007 - she and her dance partner Alec Mazo were the first to be eliminated.

Maran launched her own natural cosmetics line Josie Maran Cosmetics in 2007.
