Mum on the run: Heavily pregnant Billie Piper keeps active as she sprints to her car

Keeping active: Pregnant actress Billie Piper rushes to her car outside a London nail and beauty salon

She may be heavily pregnant with her second child, but Billie Piper is certainly keeping active.

The actress, 29, was spotted sprinting to her car - perhaps due to a parking permit running out - after visiting a nail and beauty salon in London.

The former Doctor Who star and actor husband Laurence Fox are expecting a baby boy next month.

The couple confirmed her pregnancy in October when the Almeida Theatre's artistic director Michael Attenborough said Piper was concerned her expectant state would affect her run in the play Reasons To Be Pretty.

Piper and Fox, 33, are already parents to three-year-old Winston.

No doubt, Piper will be hoping for an easier birth to her second child.

She was in labour for 26 hours before undergoing an emergency caesarean delivery of Winston in October 2008.

And although the birth was difficult, Piper obviously hasn't been up.

In an interview with the Daily Mail in 2010, she said: 'Giving birth. I ended up having an emergency caesarean and I was quite ill afterwards.

'It really was epic, but I enjoyed the experience deeply. Having a child is such a profoundly emotional moment. It's a bit of a cliché, but it really is incredible how much the act of giving birth affects you.'

She also spoke of her joy at being a parent and her plans for three children.

She said: 'I think I am always happiest when I am spending time with Winston.

'I know it sounds so clichéd, but I really do love being a mum - it gives you an amazing sense of happiness.

'He is very wilful, though, and so I think we are going to have our hands full with him in the future.

'I used to want a big family, but now I'd be really happy with three children.'
