Family of four! Philip Winchester and his wife, Megan, have welcomed their second child, and the Law & Order: SVU star showed off his newborn on social media on Friday, February 15.

“Momma bear. Sister bear. And little bear,” the actor, 37, captioned the baby’s debut. “#thenextadventure.” In the close-up shot, Philip’s wife had her bundle of  joy on her chest wearing a striped hat. The infant’s eyes and mouth were open.

Megan and the Chicago Justice alum already share one child. Charlie was born in 2015, seven years after the two tied the knot. The 4-year-old could be seen in the background of the Instagram photo wearing rainbow stripes and sucking on a lollipop, just like her mom.

Philip’s baby reveal comes just hours after he announced that he and his wife were expecting. In a Thursday, February 14, Instagram post captioned, “Game Time! #baby2 #strongmomma #soon,” Megan stood in a hospital gown with an IV in her arm.

Philip and his wife were high school sweethearts in Belgrade High School in Montana. He started his career with a small role in The Patriot in 1998, but TV was his claim to fame. The actor is best known for playing Peter Stone on Chicago P.D., Chicago Justice, Chicago Med and Law & Order: SVU.

Philip spoke to One Chicago Center in February 2018 about bringing his character to SVU. “Even though we had so much time with Peter Stone in Justice, we didn’t really get to find out much about him,” he said. “Ironically, over here on SVU, we have more time to dive into who he is. He’s not taking on all these big cases; he has more time to do some other things in his life, and the audience in turn gets to see that.”
