Fashion designer Rachel Roy is working on her next project with husband Damon Dash: their second baby, due in the spring.

“It’s number two,” Roy, 33, told this week. “And I am thrilled because number one, Ava, is the best thing in my life, and I have always wanted to have another little Ava – or Ava as a boy! So, high fives all around!”

Ava was born in 1999, a year after Roy and Dash became a couple. They married in 2005.

Within two years of meeting Dash, Roy became a creative director for his Rocawear company. She now has her own eponymous fashion label.

Dash, 36, also has a son from a previous relationship.
