In December, a rep for Simmons confirmed to People that the Top Chef judge was pregnant with her second child.

 In a statement, Simmons and her hubby said, "We are thrilled that a sibling is on the way for our daughter Dahlia Rae, who is almost 4."

Back in 2008, the celebrity food writer and her music executive husband wed in a picturesque ceremony that was featured in Martha Stewart's Weddings, before welcoming their first daughter in December 2014.

Throughout her first pregnancy, Simmons admitted to People that it was a total breeze. "I really can't complain. It's been amazing," she said at the time. "I feel great and I have lots of energy. I still have a few months left, and then the actual parenting begins!"
