Lovely news from across the pond, after it’s been revealed that Hollywood actress Ginnifer Goodwin and her husband Josh Dallas have welcomed their second son together!
According to E! News, Ginnifer gave birth to a boy on 1st June in Los Angeles, with the pair naming him Hugo Wilson Dallas.
It’s a real-life fairytale for the couple who met while co-starring in American hit show Once Upon a Time – where the 38-year-old mum of two plays Snow White and her now-husband, 34, plays Prince Charming.
The couple already have a son together, Oliver Finlay Dallas, who they welcomed into the world in May 2014. Ginnifer has been outspoken about their desire to have as many children as possible, saying: ‘We’ll have as many [children] as the universe will grant us.
‘[Motherhood is] so much better [than I thought]. It makes me feel like acting is not at all creative, but being a parent, anybody who’s a parent I want to like give an Oscar to.’
However, it seems the star is under no illusions that having two little ones will be a big change from having just one, joking that they’d be ‘staffing up’ and getting in a lot of help ‘Downton Abbey style’ to cope with a second baby.
‘The first time we thought we needed to be heroes and do everything ourselves. We thought, “That’s too LA for us!” so we went real hippy dippy. And this time we are going at it like Downton Abbey style – staffing up. We’ll have like a nanny and an under nanny and an under under nanny… !’
Ginnifer and Josh had been struggling with a problem many other new parents will be able to relate to – that of choosing a name for their bundle of joy! ‘We’re trying on different things. It’s hard because we are having a boy and we blew it. I mean, not blew it, but Oliver to us is like the best name on the planet’, Ginnifer said.
‘So, how do we follow Oliver with another name that’s just as stunning?’
The pair began dating in April 2012, after meeting on the set of Once Upon a Time. The couple first revealed their exciting engagement news in October 2013, and not long after that, in November of the same year, Ginnifer and Josh announced that they were expecting their first baby. The couple tied the knot in April 2014, and gave birth to Oliver one month later.
