Christmas came early for Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell!

The Parenthood and House of Lies stars welcomed their second daughter on Friday, Dec. 19, they announced via Twitter.

Delta Bell Shepard is here. She doesn’t look like either Kristen or me, but we’re gonna keep her anyway,” Shepard, 39, wrote jokingly.

“The estrogen has now hit critical mass! Good luck, Dax. And welcome to the world DELTA BELL SHEPARD,” Bell, 34, added.

Despite the new addition, not much will change for big sister Lincoln, 21 months. “We were told to pick up the oldest first if both are crying,” the actor told PEOPLE in November.

Why Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard Plan to Focus on Their Firstborn

11/25/2014 at 09:00 AM ET

With a second baby on the way, Kristen Bell‘s growing belly is naturally the center of attention.

“We goof off and make a lot of jokes about it in our household and I think that’s what keeps it fun and light,” Bell tells PEOPLE about her baby bump. “Pregnancy is certainly a weird and strange metamorphosis.”

And with a work schedule that hasn’t stopped, the mom-to-be and her husband, Dax Shepard, couldn’t resist highlighting Bell’s burgeoning belly in their Samsung holiday ad.

“Why is yours twice as big as mine?” asks the Parenthood actor about his wife’s festive stocking in the commercial. “I’m stocking for two,” the House of Lies actress quips.

Kristen Bell‘s 18-month-old daughter Lincoln is already a great communicator.

“[She can say] a lot of two-syllable words, but she signs mostly because she’s really good at it,” the actress told PEOPLE at This Party Saves Lives event hosted by her company, This Bar Saves Lives, on Thursday night.

She adds, “People recommend doing signs because the baby can communicate with you and say, ‘I want an apple’ or ‘Look at the black dog,’ and you can actually form sentences.”

While Lincoln works on her signing skills, Bell, 34, and husband Dax Shepard, 39, are preparing for the upcoming arrival of their second child. The actress says her pregnancy has fortunately been a breeze — just like her first.

“Thank my lucky stars, it’s been a virtually identical pregnancy,” she shares. “Pregnancy can be really hard for women, and I’m lucky that I’m not really symptomatic. I’m okay with being on my feet and I’m lucky that my body feels really good.”

Kristen Bell has pregnancy problems!

Although the mom-to-be looked stunning in a fitted Dsquared2 black halter dress while at the premiere of her husband Dax Shepard‘s new movie, The Judge, it took a last-minute joint effort to pull it all off.

While on their way to the red carpet in Los Angeles on Wednesday, the actress, 34, experienced a bit of a shoe snafu when her burgeoning belly made it difficult to finish dressing.

Luckily for Bell, Shepard, 39, was happy to step in as her stylist.

“The bad news: [you] can no longer reach your feet,” she Tweeted, along with a photo of the actor coming to her rescue. “The good news: [you] have a nice hubby who’ll help put on your shoes.”

In a move that would make Veronica Mars proud, Kristen Bell has cracked the case of the baby name game.

She and husband Dax Shepard were “completely stumped” about what to call their second child earlier this summer, but the expectant parents have now solved the mystery.

“We had a little bit of a breakthrough. We’ve settled on one, thankfully,” Bell, 34, tells PEOPLE. “It’s a lot of pressure, especially because we felt ‘Lincoln’ was so perfect.”

As for when almost 18-month-old daughter Lincoln‘s little brother or sister is due, she says, “Hopefully sometime soon!”

And what does she think of Shepard’s new bell-shaped tattoo on his wedding finger?

“It was surprising. He just came home with a Band-Aid on his finger one day. Those are the kinds of surprises I get at home,” she jokes. “And people wonder why I keep letting him knock me up.”
