Heather Morris Welcomes Son Owen Bartlett

02/11/2016 at 09:25 PM ET

Heather Morris has a whole new reason to cheer.

The former Glee star and her husband Taylor Hubbell welcomed their second son on Thursday, Feb. 11, she announced on Instagram.

Owen Bartlett Hubbell, who weighed 7 lbs., 3 oz., joins 2-year-old big brother Elijah.

“I can’t tell you how amazing an experience to go from a cesarean and having a VBAC … but I did it with the loving help of my husband, Dr and family … and of course this little guy,” the new mom captioned a sweet shot of herself cuddling her newborn baby boy.

In August, Morris, 28, used the same social media site to announce her pregnancy. While posing alongside the family’s growth chart (a giant ruler!), the actress cheekily captioned the picture with a simple hashtag: “#thegrowinghubbells.”

During an interview on the set of her new horror short The Cleansing Hour in November, the mom-to-be revealed she and Hubbell were expecting a second son. And although Elijah didn’t understand there was a baby on the way, Morris didn’t doubt his big brother skills.

“He’s really cute around babies and baby dolls so I think he’s really gonna adore it,” Morris said. “He’s really excited to have somebody to play with because he’s at that age where he’s active and wants to do stuff.”

While she awaited the birth of her baby boy, Morris made sure her growing bump didn’t stop her from getting in a good work out.

“Day #2 of walking everyday till baby comes! Gonna be tough but I got my mind set and I’m gonna do it,” she wrote alongside a photo of her feet on the treadmill weeks before giving birth.

Does she live in Hollywood? I mean those are wonderful & sane names. If she’s in Hollywood, kudos for your sensibility.

She better keep her kid away from pedophile Mark Salling.

Heather never struck me as the Hollywood type. She has said in previous interviews that she would gladly give up her career to be a stay at home mom. So happy for her and hope she has two more! No doubt she can have a solid career as a choreographer or dance teacher should she choose to back to work.

She had a VBAC – Vaginal Birth After Cesarean. Good for her! Most docs and hospitals no longer allow that – mainly because they earn FAR more money cutting babies out than they do letting them be born naturally. Check out Don’t Cut Me Again! True Stories about Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC). It’s on Amazon.
