Eddie Redmayne is now a father of two!

Eddie Redmayne and his wife, Hannah Bagshawe, welcomed their second child on March 10. The couple named their baby boy Luke Richard Bagshawe, which was announced in a birth notice in The London Times.

The two revealed that they were expecting in early November 2017—a little over a year after the birth of their first child, daughter Iris Mary Redmayne, who was born in June 2016.

The actor, 35, appeared on Live! With Kelly and Ryan in February, where he revealed he and his wife did not know the sex of their second child—but Redmayne said that he did have a name picked out for a boy.

"It's interesting, because last time we didn't know, either, and we sort of did that thing where there was basically only one name for each sex that we agreed on," he said on the show.

When the couple was pregnant with their first child, they chose not to know her gender until she was born. Redmayne gushed over his daughter at last year's Screen Actors Guild awards, the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. "We have this sort of dream of wooden toys, and all that, and everyone's like, 'Yeah you always start off like that, but you end up with iPhones!' " he said.

“But all the things [like] different parts of your heart opening...it's really extraordinary,” he added. “There's this amazing thing with children— whenever you're having a bit of a tired moment or something, it's like she's always just one stop ahead of you, smiling you along. It’s great.”

The actor and his wife tied the knot in December 2014, two years after they first went public as a couple in 2012.
