One of the cutest Hollywood families just got bigger!

Actors Laura Prepon and Ben Foster have welcomed their second child. Fans of the couple had been expecting the exciting addition since Prepon announced she was pregnant last fall, and the news of the new baby’s arrival made a huge splash on social media this week.

On Feb. 26, the former “That ’70s Show” star posted an adorable Instagram of herself kissing the newborn’s little hand, writing that she was “Overwhelmed with gratitude.”

The post got nearly 900,000 likes in just two days, with many supportive comments on the photo written by celebrities.

“Congrats,” wrote Dwayne Johnson with a clapping emoji, while Chelsea Handler commented, “Happy birthday to mommy and baby!” Even her “Orange is the New Black” family got in on the lovefest, with co-star Natasha Lyonne posting a series of smiling emojis with heart eyes.

The baby, whose name and sex weren’t revealed in the post, will join young daughter Emma in the growing family. In October 2019, Prepon announced her pregnancy with an Instagram post showing her holding her older child while showing a new baby bump.

Prepon, who’s about to turn 40 in March, has become quite a social media star in recent years while also focusing more on directing and writing than acting. She’s got more than 6 million followers on Instagram and more than 180,000 subscribers on YouTube, where she posts a lot of cooking and lifestyle videos.

In 2016, she co-wrote the bestselling diet book, “The Stash Plan” and she’s following that up with a book called “You & I as Mothers,” which will come out this year.

It’s clearly an exciting year for Prepon and Foster, who has a pair of movies scheduled to come out in 2020 as well.

The couple has been married since 2018 and have been lighting up Hollywood red carpets for years. In 2017, they looked especially cute when Prepon was showing off her belly while she was pregnant with Emma.
