Donald Faison is one doting husband — or, at least, he tries to be! The Clueless alum, whose wife CaCee Cobb is pregnant with their second child, told Us Weekly that he tries to "pamper" his expecting wife but he's "never been good at pampering anyone [because he's] an actor."

"Automatically, the first thing we think about is ourselves," the Exes star joked, before going on to gush he has nothing but love for his wife.

"I am ecstatic [we are expecting]," he told Us on Oct. 27 at an Exes cast event in Los Angeles. "This time, it was a little harder on her as far as morning sickness went — and that term, 'morning sickness,' is bulls–t. [It's] all day sick."

The former Scrubs star added, "I have nothing but respect for her because I know how difficult it was for me during those first three months, so I can only imagine how difficult it is for her."

Although Faison isn't the best at pampering his wife (BFF and former assistant to Jessica Simpson), he's supportive in that he "remembers that she's pregnant." 

"That's the most important thing. Because it's like, 'Holy cow! You're different! But you're my wife and you're preggers.'"

The couple, who wed in December 2012, are already proud parents to adorable 14-month-old son Rocco, who is "getting into everything [right now]. He's your typical 14-month-old. He's really starting to communicate with us now too which is really cool to see," Faison says.

Rocco has also mastered the ability to manipulate his parents already, as well. "The kid throws temper tantrums when he doesn't get his way now, and that's like, wow. [It's like], 'You realize that we don't like to see you cry, so you're willing to pull it out of your ass and bring the tears, bring the water works until you get what you want'…I try not to [give in], but I'm a softie for him. And I want to say CaCee's not a softie. If we were to play good cop, I'm good cop, she's bad cop."
