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.
