“This little baby girl will make us a family of five,” she wrote alongside a snapshot of Ace and Maxi surrounded by pink balloons. “We couldn’t be happier to announce this precious blessing of life.”
A source tells PEOPLE exclusively of the family’s reaction to the baby news, “They are SO excited. Maxwell and Ace cannot wait — and it was a very happy surprise.”
A surprise — but a welcome one.
