The Hanks family is expanding!

Colin Hanks and wife Samantha Bryant are expecting their second child, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

The pair let their happy news speak for itself Monday at opening night of the actor’s father Tom Hanks‘ new Broadway play, Lucky Guy.

The Dexter and Burning Love star, 35, and Bryant, clad in a form-fitting dress that showcased her pregnancy, posed for photos on the arrivals line at the Broadhurst Theater in New York City.

The couple, who married in 2010, are already parents to daughter Olivia Jane, 2.

This will be the second grandchild for the elder Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson — and they’re already well-versed in the art.

“They cannot wait to just dote on this kid with every single fiber of their being,” Hanks joked after the birth of Olivia.

“My wife and I are more than happy to give them our baby and say, ‘Here, watch her while we take a nap!'”

Oh I take my comment back…I thought he resembled Rita Wilson but apparently, that’s not actually his biological mother.

Wow! I can’t believe Tom Hanks has a 35 year old son! Colin looks just like his Dad…Hopefully he’s got the same heart, too-something that I’ve always loved about Tom. Congrats Colin!

Colin isn’t Rita Wilson son, he’s her step son. His mother is Samantha Lewes, Tom Hanks’ first wife.

I bet Tom Hanks is an excellent grandfather! Congrats to everyone involved and please, as you did with your daughter, give this next child a lovely, normal name!

Congrats to them! He looks a LOT like his dad.

A normal name! on

She really has aged, I didn’t recognize her at all. Couldn’t believe it’s the same woman after clicking on previous pix of her. This time around it must be very difficult for her.
