Eddie Redmayne and his wife Hannah are expecting baby #2

Congratulations are definitely in order! It was just announced that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them actor Eddie Redmayne and his wife are having a baby. This will be the second child for the pair.

Redmayne got married just two years ago to publicist Hannah Bagshawe and is already the dad of 16-month-old Iris Mary, who was born on June 15th, 2016. Back then, the pair waited until the baby was born to find out the sex, and we’re a bit curious as to whether or not they’ll take the same approach today.

"I’m excited," he told People last year. "But I don’t think it’s sunk in yet. We just bought our first baby book. So there’s the first step. We’re waiting to find out [the sex]. We want to be surprised. It will be a big surprise either way! I figure part of it I’ll get from the book and part will be just instinct."

Redmayne and his wife got married back in 2014, and their wedding reportedly had a ‘winter wonderland’ theme.

Back when his daughter Iris was just a 4-month-old, Redmayne opened up about the joys of fatherhood. He said that one of the greatest things about the role was seeing his daughter smile in the morning.

"If Iris has managed to sleep through the night and then you hear a gentle squeak and you go in [her room] and turn on the light. She has a massive grin that's like, 'It's a whole new day,'" he said to People.

 We’re so glad that his experience with Iris was nothing but positive, and hope that baby #2 brings an equal amount of joy to his household. We wish nothing but the best for him and his wife!
