Now a family of four! Jamie-Lynn Sigler and her husband, Cutter Dykstra, have welcomed their second child together — a baby boy.
“He’s here. Jack Adam Dykstra we will talk about your tardiness eventually, but for now we’ve got a lot of love to give,” the actress captioned an Instagram pic of the newborn on Tuesday, January 16. “Thanks to my besties for helping me laugh and smile and to my husband for just being my rock.” Little Jack was born on Monday, January 15, and weighed 8 pounds and 8 ounces.
The 36-year-old Sopranos alum announced via Instagram in July that the couple were expecting their second bundle of joy.
“This is the actual pic I sent my husband this past Mother’s Day while lying on the bathroom floor. I had just returned from Israel, was jet lagged, and didn’t believe my eyes. So had to obviously be 5x over sure. We are SO excited to announce the arrival of another little one in just a few short months 😁👼🏼❤,” Sigler captioned a photo of herself alongside five positive pregnancy tests.

Shortly after sharing their exciting news, the I Do actress — who is already mom to son Beau, 4 — opened up to Us Weekly about her fears that her struggle with multiple sclerosis might negatively impact her chances of becoming pregnant for the second time.
“In the back of my mind, I was worried about if my medical problems would interfere with getting pregnant,” the star explained to Us in July. “But within the first month we found out we were!”
She continued: “I took one of the Clearblue Digital Pregnancy Tests, went to get my son dressed and came back. When I peeked at it and I saw the word ‘pregnant,’ I screamed!My husband wasn’t with me, so I took five more because I knew he would want the proof.”
Just days after announcing that they were expecting, the twosome, along with the help of their adorable son, revealed the sex of their second child. In an Instagram clip, the 28-year-old professional baseball player pitched a ball to their little boy. When the ball made contact with Beau’s bat, blue powder filled the air, signifying they were expecting a boy.
“We are excited to announce, it’s a…… video and edit by @donatiennela ! 👼🏼,” the brunette beauty wrote.
In the months leading up to their new addition’s arrival, the couple were not shy about documenting their pregnancy on social media.
In August, Sigler had her baby bump on full display as the family enjoyed a sweet escape to Hawaii. “Hi. We live here now,” she wrote at the time.
And just weeks before giving birth, the New York native showed off her pregnancy curves in a formfitting gray dress.
“We’re getting there….” the Mommy, I Did’t Do It actress captioned the selfie.
Sigler’s second pregnancy didn’t come as a surprise. The actress hinted at wanting to expand her family while talking to Us in May.
“If you ask [Beau] he says he likes it the way it is, but my husband and I are definitely thinking about expanding our family,” Sigler shared with Us. “[Cutter] is an amazing dad. He is as present as he can be and he always wants to be there. He’s down to getting on the floor, he was down to changing diapers. I couldn’t have asked for more. He’s one of the most present dads I’ve ever seen and I’m just lucky that he’s mine.”
Sigler and Dykstra, who got engaged in 2013, tied the knot in January 2016.
