Army Wives‘ Catherine 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.
