Bryce Dallas Howard & Husband Welcome Baby No. 2: Beatrice Jean!

Bryce Dallas Howard & Husband Welcome Baby No. 2: Beatrice Jean!

It’s a girl for actress Bryce Dallas Howard and her husband Seth Gabel.

The happy news comes courtesy of grandpa Ron Howard, who Tweeted last night, “Beatrice Jean Howard-Gabel. Born Jan 19 2012 8lbs 6oz. Bryce & Baby B are spectacular. Daddy Seth & brother Theo are beaming ear to ear :-)”

“Beatrice’s arrival is hugely exciting for our family Thanks for all the kind tweets folks,” Bryce’s proud papa later added.

Baby Beatrice joins big brother Theo, who turns 5 next month.

Though Bryce and her husband knew the gender of the baby on the way, they kept the big news to themselves until the very end: “We do know – we didn’t know for a while. We just found out recently,” she revealed in September. “At this point [we're telling] just family.”

Congratulations to them on their new arrival!
