Cobie Smulders is about to have a whole new perspective on How I Met Your Mother

The actress and her husband, actor Taran Killam, are expecting their second child, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

Smulders and the Saturday Night Live funnyman, both 32, are already parents to 5-year-old daughter Shaelyn Cado.

The expectant actress will certainly be busy during this pregnancy, but luckily, she has supermom powers: She starred in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and has a new Marvel movie, Avengers: Age of Ultron, due out in the spring.

The couple — who wed during a star-studded celebration in 2012 — celebrated their second anniversary in September.

Smulders recently finished shooting the independent feature Results, to be released in 2015, opposite Guy Pearce.

She is a lucky girl. I think he is cute and funny. That is a winning combo.

Yay, congratulations to them! Can’t wait until she’s back on SHIELD (which probably won’t be for a while now) and excited to see Cobie in Age of Ultron.

Congratulations to the family. Lol It’s funny that she is such a family oriented person when her how I met your mother character wasn’t. I guess that is the name of the acting game!

DaisyMoon on

She’s so pretty.

Cyndi on

Congratulations! I didn’t know she was only 32. How great to have a very successful show that ran for nine years under your belt at 32!

finally, news about a couple that actually interests me. But man, will they give THIS kid a spellable name? Neither of them has a conventional first name, and then they did that to their daughter … I wonder why?

I think they are both really talented and appealing. so, hey, I can express negative opinions about their names!

stephanie on

wait? what? i thought he was mine!!!

JM Jersey on

@krocket As someone who has lived for 31 years with a name one letter off from their first child’s, I can tell you it’s not that bad. In fact, I love my name, and I get a lot of compliments on it.

Congrats to them! I wonder why they waited so long for baby number two? I hope it was by choice rather than because of secondary infertility!

Nicci on

To Anonymous: Cobie and Taran waited to have another baby because they were living on separate coasts for the past 4 years. (Cobie in LA for HIMYM and Taran in NYC for SNL) HIMYM ended its successful run of 9 seasons in March, Cobie moved to NYC this past summer and BAM! Baby #2.
