Surprise: It’s a boy!

Actress Jennifer Love Hewitt has welcomed her second child with her husband, actor Brian Hallisay.

Son Atticus James Hallisay arrived Wednesday, the actress’ rep confirms to PEOPLE.

Thirteen months after welcoming their first child, now 18-month-old daughter Autumn James, the couple announced they were expecting another baby — and delivery surprise — together.

“I feel my best when I’m pregnant, which means I probably should have 18 children — it won’t happen — but I do feel good,” Hewitt, 36, told American Baby in April.

Despite now having two under two, Hewitt, who was named the face of Palmer’s pregnancy products, and Hallisay, 36, aren’t fazed by the hard work ahead.

“We didn’t have a night nurse, we didn’t have a nanny,” the former Criminal Minds star told PEOPLE in May. “We haven’t ever had any of that stuff. It’s been really interesting to do it all ourselves.”
