Baby No. 4 on the Way for Cake Boss Buddy Valastro

There’s another bun in the oven for TLC’s Cake Boss star Buddy Valastro. He and wife Lisa are expecting baby no. 4 in February, they tell PEOPLE.

“Lisa and I are thrilled to be welcoming our fourth child into the world,” says Valastro, 33, who is dad to Sofia, 7, Buddy, 6, and Marco, 3.

“Our three children are looking forward to adding a new brother or sister.”

The pregnancy will be a storyline on the latest season of Cake Boss, airing Mondays at 9 p.m.

And there will be no rest for the weary dad, and owner of Carlo’s Bakery in Hoboken, N.J. He’ll be promoting his new TLC competition series, The Next Great Baker, in December, and has a new book, Cake Boss: Stories and Recipes from Mia Famiglia hitting shelves in November.

Grats to Buddy and Lisa! I knew it when I saw the previews. It’s so nice to see this. Can’t wait to see the new member when he/she arrives!

Hugo on

Congratulations to Buddy, Lisa, and family!

Erika on

LOVE the show! Congrats to them! I hope it’s a little girl to balance it out, plus Buddy is so cute with his daughter!

selene on

I have just discovered Cake Boss and I love it. Buddy is so talented and his cakes look so delicious.
Congrats to the ever growing Valastro famiglia

A. on

I figured that was the case when Buddy kept talking about how he really wanted another baby on the premiere! If I were Lisa, I’d just keep having babies! ;-) Congrats to them!

Congratulations to Buddy and Lisa! I seen this last night on Cake Boss and I was extremely happy for them! Thanks CBB for including them on here :D

Lis on

Does anyone know if Buddy is, in fact, Buddy Sr. and Buddy Jr.’s given name (not just a nickname)?

Just wondering… Thanks! :)

Allie on

I love this couple. Congrats. Does anyone know what episode she announces it? I saw it in the preview.

michelle on

Buddy’s given name is Bartolo. The episode that aired last night, epsisode 3 of the current season, is the one which Lisa announces the pregnancy.

Jess from Ohio on

@Lis- according to his given name is Bartolo, as is his son, with Buddy as a nickname.

Congrats to Buddy and family on the upcoming addition.

Lola Marie on

Congrats, I love the show!!

MariaP on

Congrats to them. I just remembered Buddy saying when they think it’s over with babies ( in the episode where they announce his sister’s pregnancy) another baby comes on the way.

I also learned that one of my favorite person on the world Alessandro Del Piero and his wife are expecting baby too so congrats to them also

jessicad on

They are such a cute couple!! Congrats to them, and Erika I thought the same thing, to keep things balanced haha.

Brooke on

SO excited for them!! :)

Girdle Girl on

I wouldn’t fancy working in a kitchen all day when I was pregnant – far too hot! I seem to lose my internal thermostat when I’m pregnant.

Erika on

OMG it premiered last night? Lol I thought it was starting next to check my dvr to see if it recorded it.

D on

WOOOO HOOOO GO BUDDY!!!! He wasn’t kidding when he said that maybe she should try for a fourth!!! I have no doubt the cake will be awesome!!!

Naty on

Congrats.I love cake boss :)
Does anybody know if his son Marco is adopted? he is so different,blond and has blue eyes.He is so cuteeeeeeeeeeee :)I want him lol.

Hannah on

@Naty, Marco looks like Lisa

Sal on

Wow fantastic news!
I am also due in feb 2011 ;) All the best with the pregnancy and the preparations leading up to the arrival of the new baby!

Dawn on

Congrats to the Valastro family!!! Naty, I have been to Carlo’s bakery twice and Lisa is blonde and absolutely beautiful in person. (she is attractive on t.v. but there is a big difference seeing her in person)
I would be shocked if they said Marco was adopted…

Paisan on

I know the family personally and his son Marco actually looks like Buddy when he was his age,except Buddy had brown eyes instead of blue.

melissa on

Buddy’s name is bartolo and his sons name is actually Buddy…

Stephanie on

Congrats Buddy and Lisa thats wounderful News

T on

Melissa, actually Buddy, his son, a cousin, his father as well as Mauro’s son Buddy all have the legal given name of Bartolo. It was mentioned in the second half of last weeks 1 hr premiere episode, when the Valastro’s went to visit the town where Buddy’s dad grew up.

Rebecca Harmon on

I’m due in February, also!!! fun!! =)

CelebBabyLover on

T- That’s interesting to know! I wonder how the family keeps from confusing all of those Buddys (since they all apparently use Buddy as a nickname)?! Anyway, congrats to them, and I hope it’s a girl. Then they’ll have two of each!

Renee on

Congrates to Buddy and family…..I love your show.You guys are the most talented bakers…….You make the most beautyful cakes….May you have a happy and healthy addition to your familia!!

Love Cake Boss, and I’m really happy for these two! Their 3 kids are beautiful and I’m sure this one will be as well! Hope everything goes smoothly!

Libby on

I love that this show promotes family! And now it will be even bigger – how wonderful!

Emily on

Very exciting, they seem like wonderful parents. I’m thinking girl??

Marcia on

I love this show. I watch it every chance I get even if it’s a rerun. Lisa told Buddy she was pregnant at their romantic last night dinner in Italy. These people make me feel as if they mesh with people, no matter the ethnicity, financial status or anything else. I would love to visit the bakery some day and meet them!

Janice Pielert on

I’ve been watching their Italian adventure over the last week and thought that Buddy’s wife looked pregnant then. Congratulations! Buddy said he was wishing for another baby and God answered his prayers.

hugs on

Rachael on

Wow, congrats! When does he time find for all this?

Love the show also!



joanne on

there is a granddaughter of the late buddy, sr., the daughter of one of buddy’s sisters (i think it is garce and joey’s daughter)whose name is bartolina, named after her grandfather.

Gail on

I never, never miss cake boss! It is recorded on my direct tv. Now I can’t wait for the book to come out.
MANY MANY CONGRATULATIONS to Buddy & Lisa & PRAISE GOD for Blessing you two once again with a child. I am so very excited for you and I bet Gram Ma is too!! LOVE TO THE WHOLE FAMILY!

I wondered about Marco too. I saw the episode with Lisa’s dad’s pizzeria. they showed pictures of Lisa as a child, and she had dark hair and eyes. They are a beautiful family and Marco is a beautiful boy, it’s just unusual that he has the blonde hair and light eyes.

michi on

Marco probably inherited the rare recessive blue eye gene (the brown eye is the dominant gene) which is possible if both parents (sometimes if even one parent) carry that gene. Possibly Lisa’s father or mother or even one of her grandparents have blue eyes. It’s the same in my family.

Debbie Killian on

Why do we not see Lisa’s parents???

Debbie Killian on

Why don’t we ever see Lisa’s parents???

K on

how come marco is rarely shown in the episodes when the family went to Italy?

Joy Devereaux on

@K- In the Italy episodes the kids were rarely shown. The kids are rarely shown ever. Marco did have a good chunk of camera time in the Bakery Buddy and Mauro went to.
