Jenna Fischer is pregnant!

The former Office star and husband Lee Kirk are expecting their second child this summer, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

The couple are already parents to son Weston Lee, 2½.

“I had really underestimated what I was capable of because, before I had him, I thought I needed things that I didn’t really need,” Fischer, 39, joked to PEOPLE last year.

“I want nine hours of sleep, but it turns out I don’t need it!”

She and Kirk, 42, a writer and director, tied the knot in July 2010 during a ceremony that Office costar Rainn Wilson called “the most beautiful wedding I’ve ever experienced.”

“It looks like I need to get some new goals because I’m living my dream right now,” Fisher told PEOPLE in 2012.

“[My husband] is amazing. He’s such a good father. I’m very lucky. I came to Los Angeles and wanted more than anything to be on a comedy TV show like Cheers. My other goal was to marry a great man and have a family.”

Jenna is so gorgeous, her children can’t miss being cuties.

What a stupid comment, ‘yahoo’. She had her first baby when she was on The Office. Your comment makes absolutely NO sense at all.

Breaking news? It is just another celebrity having a baby. Hardly worthy of a breaking news headline.

Who is Jenna Fischer? I have never heard of her or watched the show The Office. I really don’t live under a rock either!

To those getting upset about this being a “breaking news” story- From what I understand, a story is listed as “breaking news” if it gets a certain number of hits (in otherwords, it’s PEOPLE viewers, not PEOPLE itself, who make the decision!).

That being said, congrats to them!

It’s a beautiful feeling when you think to yourself that you are living your dream. Successful career and raising a family with the man you love – you can’t ask for too much more. Congrats to them!

Shosh, I do believe this is a celebrity baby news site. Why are you even here if it’s not relevant to you?

I thought Breaking News meant something that happened RIGHT away.

If you look at the timestamp, you can see that it was posted 3 hours after the 3:00 first announcement. Something like that. It doesn’t matter whether the news is “important” — it just matters that it JUST HAPPENED and that you’re reading from one of the first sources. That’s all.
