They’re thinking pink!

Donald Faison and wife CaCee Cobb are expecting a daughter, The Exes star tells PEOPLE.

“We’re having a girl so it’s much different this time around,” Faison says.

Although Cobb did well while pregnant with their now 14-month-old son Rocco, the actor says she’s struggling with their second child.

“Before I feel like pregnancy was a little bit easier, right now she’s having the hardest time carrying this baby,” he says. “The baby’s healthy thank goodness … [but] things are changing on my wife!”

In October, Faison, 40 — who is already dad to Kobe, 12, twins Dade and Kaya, 14, and Sean, 17, from prior relationships — announced he was expecting another baby with Cobb by showing off a photo of Rocco sporting a big brother shirt.

“Things are changing on my wife”?? It sounds like he is complaining that she is gaining weight or getting stretch marks. Newsflash – women change with each pregnancy! I guess he can just trade her in for a new model and go have more children.

Sara, he probably meant that “things are changing FOR my wife,” i.e. morning sickness.

How exciting for them! I hope CaCee’s morning sickness subsides soon!

That dude is fertile.

Way too many children (on his part) and I’m not talking about being financially able to support all of them – but what about emotionally? At least one of his kids lives across the country in NYC. I scrolled through his instagram and I noticed most of his pictures are with his youngest and hardly none with the other 3.

“it’s much different” — just because the fetus is female. Shouldn’t make any difference. and as many kids as he has, pregnancy-attendance should be nothing for him. as for “able to support” his kids, does he own a municipal sewage system, dairy farm, grocery outlet, hospital, clothing factory, etc. etc. Everyone supports everyone. There is only one atmosphere, there is a finite supply of water, and…no man is an island. This man, however (like Stevie Wonder), doesn’t know when to stop.

This is not his first daughter. What a loser

It’s gotta be a little tough when you start pretty early on in life having kids and the marriage/relationship doesn’t work out and you end up with a younger partner. Chances are, the new partner is going to want to have children (especially if they don’t have any children) and while he’ll only have two children with Cacee, this will be baby # 6 for Donald.

I applaud parents that are able to integrate extended families together well and give all their children the care, love and attention they need and deserve but I imagine it’s not an easy thing to do, especially when distance is a factor or there is bad blood between the parents. I hope Donald is as much of a father to his older children as he is to his children with Cacee.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Wow I didn’t know he had that many children. What is he trying to do make a while football team?

Jimmy- He shouldn’t have unprotected sex with his WIFE?! I’m sorry, but that’s just crazy!

Also, why should someone have to use protection if they WANT a child/children (as appears to be the case with Donald and CaCee) and have the emotional and fiananical means to care for them?!
