A family of four! Gail Simmons has welcomed her second child – a baby boy. The Top Chef star announced the news with a sweet photo of the newborn on Monday, May 28.

“He’s here! And he’s a keeper. Please excuse the social media silence but I’ve been busy ogling this little guy who barreled into our lives Wednesday morning,” Simmons, 42, captioned the Instagram pic. “Thank you friends far and wide for all your love and support. So far it’s been beautiful chaos. #mamaoftwo.”

Us Weekly confirmed in December 2017 that Simmons and her husband, Jeremy Abrams, were expanding their family. They are already parents of daughter Dahlia Rae, 4.

Back in March, Simmons admitted that having another child wasn’t “a cut-and-dry decision.”

“We’ve loved the last four years with Dahlia, so it was a big move to consider going from one to two kids,” she said during an interview with HATCHland at the time. “Once we decided, it took a minute, as I’ve never been the person that could sneeze and get pregnant. I’m so grateful to be having our baby, but I’m cognizant of how it’s going to change our lives and the systems we have in place.”

Simmons and Abrams tied the knot in 2008.
