Sarah Drew won’t need much help from the prop department: she’s pregnant!

The Grey’s Anatomy actress is expecting her second child with husband Peter Lanfer, her rep confirms exclusively to PEOPLE.

The couple, who are already parents to 2½-year-old son Micah Emmanuel, will welcome their new addition in December.

“Peter and I are delighted to announce our pregnancy,” Drew tells PEOPLE. “We can’t wait to introduce Micah to his little brother or sister.”

On the season finale of Grey’s, it was revealed that Drew’s character, April Kepner, is expecting her first child with her onscreen husband Jackson Avery, played by new dad Jesse Williams.

And while she’ll be busy balancing her expanding family with the upcoming season of her hit show, Drew recently admitted her son makes motherhood look easy.

“He does have tantrums now and again, but for the most part, he’s incredibly sweet and funny and such a good boy,” she said. “He’s a lot easier than a lot of toddlers. I’m very, very lucky.”

It is not a spoiler unless you did not watch the whole season. It was not revealed on last episode it was known earlier on the season.

Yay! I love April & Jackson together, and I’ve loved Sarah since Everwood 🙂

And it’s definitely not a spoiler if you watched any of the last episodes of GA last season. A season that ended 2 months ago!

Congrats to Sarah and the family!

Lucy – We don’t all live in the states. Some of us have to wait.

I love her character (and scenes with Jackson, yummy) on the show! Don’t break them up, Shonda or I’ll be so disappointed. Congrats on the new baby.
