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.
