It’s another girl for Josh Gad!

The Frozen star, 32, and wife Ida Darvish, 39, welcomed their second child, daughter Isabella Eve, on Monday, Feb. 17.

“Mom and baby — aka Joshette Gad — are happy and healthy,” the actor tells USA Today.

Isabella joins big sister Ava Tanya, 3, at home.

Gad, who’s also known for his role on 1600 Penn and in the Broadway smash The Book of Mormon, initially announced the news via Twitter early Tuesday morning, writing, “Well, it’s official. I am a daddy again. And my wife deserves an award for her incredible strength and amazing demeanor. #luckiestman”

At the risk of sounding weird, I kind of wish they’d used Tanya as their daughter’s first name rather than middle name. It’s a name you don’t hear too often (unlike Ava, not that there’s anything wrong with that!) and I like the sound of it (and I especially like that particular spelling for some reason!)! 🙂
