Their little lady is here!

The Exes star Donald Faison has welcomed his second child, a daughter, with wife CaCee Cobb on Thursday, April 23, a rep confirms to PEOPLE.

“Meet the newest love of our life, Wilder Frances Faison,” Cobb captioned a sweet snapshot of her newborn baby girl.

The couple let son Rocco, 20 months, do the honors of announcing the pregnancy in October, appearing in a big brother shirt in a photo posted to their Instagram accounts.

But once the actor, 40, and Cobb, 37, found out they would be welcoming a baby girl, things took a new turn.

“It’s much different this time around,” Faison, also father to Kobe, 14, twins Dade and Kaya, 15, and Sean, 17, told PEOPLE.

“Before I felt like pregnancy was a little bit easier, right now she’s having the hardest time carrying this baby.”

Fortunately for Cobb, she eventually found her sweet spot: In December, Faison admitted his wife was feeling much better.

“It was a little touch and go at first, but she’s so amazing right now and she’s doing really well,” he said.

Late Friday, Cobb’s best friend Jessica Simpson shared her own photo with Wilder, captioning it, “Madly in love with my Goddaughter Wilder Frances Faison!!! I am beyond proud.” Added godfather Zach Braff: “Thank you to Cacee for growing this for Donald and [me]. #GodfatherII”

Wow, six kids Donald, eh? I won’t stand next to you then.

Adorable baby. Haven’t seen him in any recent television shows or movies lately. Children are expensive — six kids, I hope he’s got some acting gigs lined up. Competition is tough out there in Hollyweird.

Donald Faison is a regular on The Exes…. Adorable baby girl, and nice name! They are an attractive couple and surely do make some pretty children!

Sara K on

Is it wilder like wilder-ness, or wild-er?

S on

It’s most likely pronounced Wild…er.

Congrats to them! I wonder if they’re Gene- or perhaps Billy- Wilder fans? 😉

He can’t take care of the kids he has now. He needs to grow up.
