Her hard work has paid off: Molly Sims is pregnant!

The model and actress and her husband, producer Scott Stuber, are expecting another baby together, she announced Tuesday on her website.

“I am BE-yond thrilled to share some very special news with you,” Sims, 41, writes.

“Scott, Brooks, and I are welcoming a fourth member to our little family — our second child!”

Along with the announcement, the mom-to-be posted a photo of herself and son Brooks Alan holding up chalkboards that read “4 months” and “2 years.”

“I can’t even being to explain just how excited we are for a new baby. We are so, so, so blessed as a family, and I’m speechless at the fact that we have the opportunity to bring a second bundle of joy into the world,” Sims writes.

“As a new mom to Brooks, an entire world of motherhood opened to me along with a thousand and one questions. I absolutely cannot wait to see what life will be like as a mother to a toddler and a newborn, and I really can’t wait to see Brooks as an older brother to Baby #2!”

The couple have yet to find out the sex of their baby, but Sims has high hopes that big brother Brooks will shine in his new role.

“I just know that he’s going to be preciously protective. If it’s a girl, he’ll be her biggest supporter and confidant and if it’s a boy, I know they’ll be the best of friends, always getting into adventures together,” she shares.

“Scott, Brooks and I can’t wait to welcome Baby #2 to the Sims-Stuber household!!”

Earlier this month, Sims told PEOPLE she and Stuber were working on expanding their family.

“We’re starting to try for another one and it’s just so fun … you become a kid again!” she said.

The couple were engaged in May 2011 and tied the knot that September during an intimate ceremony in Napa Valley, California.

She has some of the more annoying baby-related quotes on this site. Always talking about what her son is doing. Is Molly Sims an actress now? I don’t even know what she does to get all of this coverage on People.

happy on

Anonymous…crawl out from the rock your under!

“Become a kid again?” Molly Sims must have had a very interesting childhood if trying for a baby reminds her of being a kid again. :/

I had my son at 41 and it was a very easy pregnancy and delivery. Best wishes to the family.

Not to be mean or cruel here but that “little boy” looks like a girl! Weird

We’ve been trying for 7 months for our 1st child…either she was already pregnant when she announced she was trying or it happened super fast, congrats! Wish I got so lucky….

To announce that they were ready to start trying again – knowing at the same time that they already were pregnant – wasn’t very considerate. I’m too TTC for several months now, and thought “oh, maybe we will have a baby at the same time!”. and then: bamh! she’s pregnant! not a nice feeling …. (celebrities just live in their perfect little bubble….. until – of course – their big Oprah postpartum, miscarriage, anxiety attacks – confession, 3 years later, that is.).

Of course, at 41 years old, she couldn’t just inform everyone about her honest TTC plans, when they might have ended up waiting for a baby for months, even years to come!

In my opinion, she should have simply done without the semi-announcement.

Her son is so cute!
