David Arquette has something exciting to Scream about: a new baby on the way!

On Wednesday, the actor took to Instagram to share a video of his 2-year-old son Charlie West holding an ultrasound photo to announce he and wife Christina are expecting their second child together.

“So incredibly blessed and honored that my wife @christinaarquette is pregnant with a baby boy!” the former In Case of Emergency star captioned the clip.

“Thank you Christina and humbled gratitude to G-D for this tremendous gift!” adds Arquette, 45. “Charlie and Coco are so excited and I am over the moon!!!”

“Say, ‘Hi, brother!’ ” Christina says from behind the camera in the video, which shows Charlie kissing and snuggling the ultrasound photo.

“Baby?” he says.

“Yeah, it’s a baby in my belly,” his mom replies.

“Hi, baby!” he says before following up with, “Hi, brother!” and planting a sweet smooch on the photo.

Aside from Charlie, Arquette is also dad to 12-year-old daughter Coco from his previous marriage to Courteney Cox.

And it’s likely the actor is ready to have a newborn around again.

“Since Charlie has come into my life, I love Coco more than ever,” he told PEOPLE in 2014 when his son was an infant. “Having a son has brought back memories and made me realize how much I miss enjoying her as a baby.”

The baby news comes a month after Arquette’s sister Alexis Arquette passed away from complications related to AIDS.

Why does it say G-D? And not spelled out all the way?

Katie on

Risea, David’s mother was Jewish, and his father was a convert to Islam. Jewish people do not spell out the name of God, but generally ues G-D as a way to indicate God, without spelling it out, while muslims use the name Allah. That is a simplified explanation…. hope that helps. Sheesh, his current wife looks a lot like Courtenay Cox. Congratulations to the family!

Brenda on

Congratulations to them! Charlie is adorable! Katie, I thought the same thing…she looks JUST like Courtney Cox!

Does anyone else remember when this blog was run by an individual (I can’t remember her name, but I believe her daughter was Anya?) And now it’s by a corporation and isn’t even updating anymore! 😦

Ona on

I didn’t know he was once married Courteney Cox.

Kim on

Isn’t he in recovery? Why is he holding a wine glass with some unkown liquid in it?

Sad sad day. I’ve been checking this site for weeks with no update, now to see that PEOPLE has completely taken over. I remember when it was just a blog, People then bought it but it still remained the same & now it’s completely on People’s website as magazine style. Wow. I’ve loved this site for years but guess this is the end as magazine style is not the same at all.

Essie on

The page has moved and its crappy. This page used to be great when a mom ran it.
