There’s another baby on the way for Jaime King.

The Hart of Dixie star and her husband, director Kyle Newman, are expecting their second child, she announced via Instagram on Thursday.

The couple are already parents to son James Knight, 16 months.

“So excited to announce THE SEQUEL Coming later this year!!” King, 35, wrote. “#BabyTown2 – Created by @kyle_newman and @jaime_king. Also starring #JamesKnight”

The actress recently spoke to PEOPLE about her struggle with infertility, which included five miscarriages, five rounds of in vitro fertilization and 26 rounds of intrauterine insemination before King finally conceived her son naturally.

“I was hiding what I was going through for so long, and I hear about so many women going through what I went through. If I’m open about it, hopefully it won’t be so taboo to talk about it,” she said at the time.

King and Newman, 38, were married in 2007.

Aw, finally some news I’m excited about! She deserves this.

That is so spectacular. I know many women who have struggled with infertility and an odd phenomenon I’ve noticed is that after one successful pregnancy, the women have a much easier time conceiving and holding on the pregnancy. I wonder Jaime had an easier time with this pregnancy, best of luck to her!

putting words in his mouth, he’s not actually excited. Being a singleton is so RAD, and sharing your parents with a sibling? oh noooooo….given her name is Jaime and she named her kid James, what will she do now? How ill she name the second one? Jada and Will inflicted “Jaden and Willow” on their spwan — so maybe this time they will (shudder) use “Kylee” as a variation on the dad’s name.

Oh please HolyMoke. Like it’s any of your business what they name their child. Do they need your permission?

Kay- You might just be on to something there. Jaime mentioned that one of the conditions she was diagnosed with was edometriosis, and they say that the best “cure” for that is to have a baby! 🙂
