Congratulations are in order for Rachael Harris — she's expecting her second baby! The 50-year-old actress announced the happy news while appearing on her BFF Kelly Ripa's show, Live with Kelly and Ryan, on Thursday, Feb. 8. After sharing a cute photo of her 18-month-old son, Henry Hebel, Rachael said, "I have breaking news for you guys, are you ready? Ok, this is a world exclusive… Myself and my violinist husband Christian Hebel are expecting baby No. 2!"
Following the reveal, Rachael took to Twitter to add, "Super excited for Henry to meet his new sibling!" Kelly and her co-host Ryan Seacrest also couldn't help but gush about the baby news on the official Live with Kelly and Ryan Instagram account. "Breaking News! Congrats, @RachaelEHarris on expecting your [second] child!!! #KellyandRyanAtlantis," a cute pic of Ryan, Rachael, and Kelly was captioned.
Not surprisingly, many of Rachael's fans were quick to congratulate the Lucifer star on her news. "Congrats to Rachael and her husband," one well-wisher wrote with another adding, "This is the best news… Congratulations, @RachaelEHarris!!! I’m so happy for you and your family." Rachael and her hubby, Christian, 42, were previously introduced by their mutual friends Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka. In September 2014, the musician popped the question while the couple was on a romantic vacation in Capri, Italy. Eight months later, Rachael and Christian eloped in early 2015 at NYC's City Hall. They later welcomed their first child, son Henry, in July 2016.
Rachael and Kelly have been close friends for years — in fact, Kelly was one of only a few witnesses at Rachael and Christian's wedding! After the Hebels brought home their baby son Henry, Kelly posted a funny photo of herself and her husband, Mark Consuelos, "fighting" over the adorable newborn. "When fighting over who gets to hold the baby, always remember to NOT drop the baby. See how good we are at this, @RachaelEHarris?" Kelly captioned a cute pic of herself and Mark cuddling Henry. We can't wait to meet Rachael and Christian's new bundle of joy in just a few months!
