Army WivesCatherine Bell is adding to her ranks.

The actress, 41, is expecting her second child, a son, with husband Adam Beason in late summer, PEOPLE has confirmed exclusively.

“I’m so excited to be having a baby boy,” says Catherine, who has a 6 ½-year-old daughter, Gemma. “She has been asking for a sibling for a long time. I’ll be sure to remind her of that when it’s time to change his diapers.”

The actress wed Adam, 40, a screenwriter she met on the set of the 1992 film Death Becomes Her, in 1994. Army Wives will return to Lifetime in April.

I just love these stories where people are together for many years before having children. Like Catherine’s or Jenna Elfman’s marriage.

Aww, best wishes to her and hubby on this second pregnancy! I love Army Wives, and I wouldn’t mind if they incorporated the pregnancy in. I think it’d be nice. :)

I really loved Catherine Bell in The Good Witches. She is fantastic. She is a great actress. She was also on Law and Order, She was married to this guy Glenn and she was in the hospital. That was the sad part. She is still very pretty for being a mom and an expectant mom and also being 41. She is the same age as I am Until I turn 42 in May. Keep up the great work.
