There’s another baby on the way for Ioan Gruffudd and Alice Evans!

The former Ringer star and his wife — who played Esther on The Vampire Diaries — are expecting their second child, a rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Already proud parents to 3½-year-old daughter Ella Betsi Janet, the couple are “thrilled” to be expanding their family further, the rep adds.

Gruffudd — who recently guest-starred on Castle and has filmed Forever and Mariah Mundi — certainly seems up for the challenge of two kids; He previously joked that Ella is constantly keeping him on his toes!

“She’s very, very strong. She’s like her mother. I’ve got my work cut out for me at home,” the actor, 39, says.

Evans, 44, recently guest-starred on Grimm. The couple, who met on the set of 102 Dalmations, were married in September 2007 in Mexico.
