It comes after Chris and Katherine welcomed their first daughter – Lyla – into the world back in August 2020.

The Jurassic World star is also dad to son Jack, who he shares with his ex-wife Anna Faris – whom he was married to until 2018.

Chris and his wife announced they were expecting their second baby just a year after welcoming their first daughter.

Last year, Chris honored his wife Katherine on her 32nd birthday with a sweet Instagram post that celebrated their love.

“Happy Birthday Honey! You are such a wonderful wife, mother, step-mother, and life partner. I simply can’t imagine how lost I’d be without you,” the actor gushed.

The sweet caption came alongside a carousel of photos featuring Katherine catching some rays on a boat.

He continued, “You’re beautiful, tough as nails, reasonable, deeply thoughtful, extraordinarily smart, you’re a complete boss, eternally driven and you communicate like no other. Thank you for everything.”

Since welcoming Lyla, Katherine has been embarking on a weekly Instagram series all about motherhood called BDA Baby.

In honor of Lyla’s first birthday in August, the soon-to-be mom of two expressed her love for being a mother, sharing a rare image of her daughter on Instagram.

She captioned that post, “What a magical year it’s been. I watch my little girl in awe as she grows and changes — moving from infant to baby to now the toddler phase!”

Chris and Katherine tied the knot in a “romantic” and intimate ceremony on June 8, 2019.

The couple said their vows at the luxurious San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California – with Terminator star himself walking his daughter down the aisle.

Chris received backlash online after he thanked Katherine for giving him a “healthy daughter” in a November Instagram post a few weeks before her 32nd birthday.

“She’s given me an amazing life, a gorgeous healthy daughter,” he wrote, in part.

Fans took issue with Chris’s word choice, with many nothing that the word “healthy” seemed like a dig against son Jack, who was born prematurely with “severe brain bleeding”.
