Will Ferrell and his wife, Viveca Paulin, are expecting their second child, the actor announced Thursday on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

“My wife is pregnant again,” Ferrell told Leno.

Asked by Leno if he is indeed the baby’s father, Ferrell joked, “I’m not the father. Chuck Norris is the dad.”

Ferrell, 39, and Paulin, 37, wed in 2000. They have a 2-year-old son, Magnus.

When Paulin, an art auctioneer, was pregnant with their first child, Ferrell said he kept her entertained by leaving comedic voicemails at their Hollywood Hills home. “I left her this message: ‘You think you’re so hot walking around all pregnant and saying, Look at me!’ ” Ferrell told PEOPLE in 2003. “And she loved it, because she so doesn’t feel that way.”

Ferrell’s new comedy, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, opens Aug 4.
