  JK expecting a baby!
Updated 20 September 2002, 08.21

JK Rowling has revealed a second reason to be happy.

As well as winning a long court case on Thursday, she has now revealed that she is expecting a baby.

  Click here to name the Potter baby!

The baby will be JK's second child. She already has a nine-year-old daughter called Jessica from her first marriage.


JK married second husband, Neil Murray on Boxing Day last year.

The magical author started writing the Harry Potter books while she was a single mum in a café in Edinburgh.

She wrote them intended for her daughter because JK felt there wasn't anything new to read to her.

The baby is due next spring - but will it be Harry or Hermione?
