Josh Brolin is about to become a father of four!

The actor's wife Kathryn spilled her pregnancy news on Instagram Tuesday, sharing a photo of herself posing outdoors with the couple's 20-month-old daughter Westlyn Reign.

As she and the toddler share a smooch, Kathryn, 32, bares her baby bump under a black crop top, finishing the look in a pair of denim shorts and a cowgirl hat.

"The Brolin's are a growin' !!" the entrepreneur captioned her post. "Our little December babe is on the way  ...🌱"

Josh, 52, left a cheeky comment on the post, writing, "Wow. That's amazing! Congratula ... wait ... WHAT?!?!"

Plenty of the couple's famous friends chimed in as well, like Josh's Marvel costar Zoë Saldana, who remarked, "Biggest congratulations!" along with a string of clapping-hands emojis.

Josh and Kathryn announced Westlyn's birth in November 2018, with the actor sharing a video of his then-newborn baby girl fast asleep.

His father James Brolin spoke with PEOPLE Now in April of last year about his son's reaction to becoming a father again three decades after his first child was born, saying he "dropped everything" related to work and took on "nothing but diapers for three months," despite how busy he was.

And as for how his wife Barbra Streisand is as a grandma, "The minute the kid comes into the room, she just changes into another person. She falls apart," said James, 79. "And she's persnickety ... the minute the kid comes in, all that just goes out the window. It's really fabulous to see."

Aside from Westlyn, Josh has two adult children — daughter Eden, 26, and son Trevor, 32 — from his first marriage to actress Alice Adair. Josh and Kathryn tied the knot in September 2016.
