Despite being busy with work, Josh Holloway will not be turning his cellphone on silent today.


The former Lost star is waiting for his wife Yessica Kumala to go into labor!

"She's due at any moment," the Intelligence actor told reporters on Wednesday, Jan. 15 during the Winter TCA Press Tour. "I could get a call. I can't really tell you the due date, but it's now."

The 44-year-old stud and his wife are expecting their second child. The couple, who got married in October 2004, are already parents to daughter Java Kumala Holloway.

But while Holloway happily revealed he's about to become a father times two, the actor wouldn't disclose any further details on the baby's gender.

"I am not allowed to say that," he admitted when asked whether his wife is having a boy or girl, adding "all that is yes," after a reporter proceeded to inquire if the pair already has names picked out.

And after Holloway revealed that he did indeed know the sex of his first child before she was born, the soon-to-be father of two shared why he seemingly didn't want to be surprised.

"Well, you're surprised anyway, you know," he said. "I needed to wrap my head around it. For a while we didn't figure this one out, for a while."

As for the lessons he's learned from fatherhood that have prepared the star for his second child?

"I was not prepared for how much love I would have in me," he admitted. "So I'm a little worried, like how can I love something as much as I love my daughter? But everyone says your love just grows, so don't be afraid of that, so that's my only thing."

So sweet!

Holloway revealed that he and his wife are expecting their second child during an interview with Entertainment Tonight in mid-November when he responded to a question about being considered a TV sex symbol.

"That's funny because I'm a family man," the actor told ET. "I've got a four-and-a-half-year-old daughter and another one on the way. Pretty excited about that."

Can't wait to meet the little one!
