It’s a rock band baby boom! Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins and his wife, Alison, are expecting their second child, the band’s drummer tells PEOPLE.

“I have one on the way!” Taylor, 36, said Saturday at Clive Davis and the Recording Academy’s Pre-Grammy Gala in Beverly Hills, while pointing to his wife’s growing belly.

The new baby will join the couple’s 18-month-old son, Oliver Shane.

Taylor’s band mate, Dave Grohl, is also becoming a father for a second time. The Foo Fighters frontman, 40, whose daughter, Violet Maye, turns 3 in April, announced in October that he and wife Jordyn Blum are also expecting their second child. Jordyn is due this spring.

Congrats Taylor and wife! Love babies–wish I had one on the way! I must say, your wife looks A LOT like your ex Minnie Driver. WOW. For a moment there I thought it WAS her.

Aw another Foo baby 🙂 Dave and Taylor kids will be quite close. I’m thinking another boy for them, but maybe a girl.

Mia on

I’m thinking she’s due in June, she looks to be about 4 1/2-5 months along. Dave’s wife Jordyn looks much fuller, probably about 6 months or 6 1/2 months-a late April/early May baby.

Hmm.. the dresses do look similar. I know that Jordyn has worn that [lovely] raspberry dress from Clive’s party before.

And not trying to steal the show from the Hawkins, but Dave & Jordyn are having a girl in April!! Read it in Rolling Stone today!!! [http://www.rollingstone.com/blogs/smokingsection/2009/02/did-you-know-that-dave-grohl-i.php]

Taylor, I am your dad’s cousin, Rita Carter Austin. My mom, Leeodas and your grandmother, Aunt Josie were sisters. It’s great to see a picture of you and your wife. Congratulations on your second child. When I went to see your Grandmother, she always talked about you. Hope Jerry is doing good. Maybe we will see him sometime. I miss him a lot. Love, Rita
