Pharrell Williams has something else to be “Happy” about.

The singer/producer and his wife Helen Lasichanh are expecting their second child, his rep confirms to PEOPLE. The couple broke the news Thursday while stepping out for a CHANEL-hosted dinner to celebrate their new fragrance N°5 L’EAU.

The pair, who married in October 2013, are already parents to son Rocket Ayer, 7½.

Lasichanh, a 36-year-old model and designer, and Williams, 43, were together for years before tying the knot.

“It’s awesome,” the Voice coach previously told Savannah Guthrie of his relationship with Lasichanh. “The bestie thing is awesome. Every night is like a sleepover.”

In a sit-down interview with Oprah in 2014, Williams explained the meaning behind his first child’s name.

“In the same way the Indians named their children after a force or animal or element, we named him after a man-made machine that was meant to go up, meant to ascend,” he explained.

Their second child’s moniker is sure to be just as meaningful.

Congratulations !! This is wonderful news! Although I and many people are very upset that Pharel no longer is on The Voice. Along with GwenStefai and the other two Blake and Adam. It was such a PEASURE to watch Pharel, Blake Adam and Gwen/Christina mentoring their prospective sudents. Although I like AlciaKeye very much the other combo WAS THE VE RY BES T COMBO OF PROFESSONIALS AND A FAMILY UNIT THAT INSPIRED MANY. Tis is truly a shame BRIN G BACK THE MIGHTY ORIGINALS!!!
