Wes Chatham and Jenn Brown Celebrate Son’s Birthday – and Reveal the Sex of Their Second Child!

11/23/2015 at 07:30 PM ET

When it came time to celebrate son Nash‘s first birthday, Jenn Brown and husband Wes Chatham decided to blend two momentous occasions into one.

After honoring the adorable tot’s first year, the couple discovered the sex of their second child, who is due in May.

“We decided to reveal the sex this way because the timing just worked out perfectly,” sportscaster Brown tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“Our doctor told us the date we would have the results of our blood work back and it was just a few days before Nash’s first birthday. We figured this would be way more fun than the doctor just reading it to us over the phone.”

Wes Chatham and Jenn Brown Expecting Second Child

11/18/2015 at 11:30 AM ET

Just nine months after welcoming their first child, Wes Chatham and his wife, sportscaster Jenn Brown, got a “pleasant surprise” – another baby on the way!

“We weren’t planning on having our second this soon, but we are loving the idea of having our children be close together,” Brown exclusively tells PEOPLE.

Chatham, 37, who is currently reprising his role as Castor in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, and Brown welcomed son John Nash in November 2014.

“I’m hearing such wonderful stories about siblings that are as close in age as ours will be, and we look forward to the challenges, too!” Brown says. “We can’t wait to find out if it’s a boy or girl. These past years have had us on a journey for which we feel such gratitude.”

Inside Wes Chatham and Jenn Brown’s Rustic Nursery: We Wanted to Honor Our Southern Roots

09/23/2015 at 03:55 PM ET

Jenn Brown has brought that Southern charm to California.

The TV personality teamed up with Oilo to create a rustic nursery for John Nash, her 10-month-old son with her husband, actor Wes Chatham.

Working with designers Annalisa Thomas and Dorte Anderson, Brown and Chatham — who will next appear as Castor in the Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 and on SYFY’s new show, The Expanse  — stuck with neutral tones that complemented the tree branch-printed wallpaper.

From there, the group added the necessities like a crib and furniture from Newport Cottages, a glider, a cozy rug from Lulu & Georgia and a cradle from BabyHome.

And to bring it all together, the couple brought in plenty of personal touches including wooden letters from The Shop on Kelly Avenue to spell out Nash’s name, a Tnees Teepee, triangle shelves from Elm Avenue Shop, a feather mobile from Whitehall Farm, and shoes from Stride Rite with Mabel’s Labels inside.

Now that the nursery is complete, Brown chatted with PEOPLE about the finished product, her favorite items and Nash’s latest milestones (including sleeping in his crib!).

Wes Chatham and Jenn Brown Introduce Son John Nash

Meet John Nash Chatham!

After welcoming their first child on Nov. 24, actor Wes Chatham and television host Jenn Brown are introducing their son in a series of sweet family photos.

Although the couple are in complete baby bliss, parenthood began with a bumpy start after the NFL Network and American Ninja Warrior host, 33, went into labor five and a half weeks weeks ahead of her New Year’s Eve due date — with Chatham, 36, stuck in Canada.

“Unfortunately, Wes was on an airplane when Nash was born,” Brown, who wore her Posh Mommy necklace during the shoot, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “We really hoped he was going to make it, but, again, Nash had other plans.”

Now 10 weeks into life with their baby boy, the new parents opened up to PEOPLE about everything from the early delivery and breastfeeding to late night feedings and their son’s name.

Jenn Brown had her bets on a baby boy — and it turns out the odds were in her favor.

The mom-to-be announced that she and her husband, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay star Wes Chatham, are expecting a son, while surrounded by friends and family at her Southern gentleman-themed baby shower on Saturday.

As they made their way into the baby bash, which was hosted by Good Carma Studio, guests were greeted by chalkboards adorned with fitting phrases like, “Welcome y’all,” and “Yes, Ma’am.”

Touches of blue, peach and sage green were used to decorate the party space, including several arrangements of moss elephants with roses and hydrangeas from The Bashful Rose, a Stride Rite shoe tower allowing the American Ninja Warrior host to browse her favorite boy styles and a colorful candy bar.
