“We’re expected a baby girl, a second little girl,” Savchenko, 33, told E! News. “I’m going to be a dad again, it’s amazing. I have a girl and I think nothing is better than a little girl for daddies.”

Dishing to PEOPLE in March about his second baby girl on the way, Savchenko said, “We were planning. We wanted to have another child. It’s the time. Olivia is already 6, so she can help a little.”

He added, “She wanted to have a little sister, so we were like, ‘That’s a great chance. That’s a great opportunity for us.’ We’re in L.A. now settled and everything’s great, so it’s fun.”
