“Holy Moly!!! Guys!!! We are having another baby!!!!” the 30-year-old Spy Kids actor captioned a family photo, featuring their 2-year-old son, Ocean, sleeping in his stroller. “Do we wake Ocean up and tell him??!!”

Update (3/28) - Carlos and Alexa PenaVega have announced on YouTube that they are expecting a baby boy! Carlos and Alexa made the announcement on Wednesday by releasing a video of themselves hosting a mini gender reveal party with their 2-year-old son Ocean King. The pair discovered they were having another boy after cutting through a cake that had blue icing in the middle. The video also included Carlos and Alexa declaring that the baby's name will be Kingston James.

"We had the most epic #gendereveal party yesterday in our room! Sure it was just our little family....But it was PERFECT!" Carlos said on Instagram alongside photos of the gender reveal cake.

“Beyond blessed and excited to continue growing this family!!!” continued Alexa, who held a positive Clear blue pregnancy test in the snap. “Get ready for a whole new set of adventures!!! #ClearblueConfirmed #ClearbluePartner.”

Carlos, a former member of Nickelodeon's Big Time Rush, also shared his excitement with fans on social media, where he shared a photo of the couple leaning in for a kiss as he held up the pregnancy test and Alexa held a photo of their sonogram on her phone.

“It’s HAPPENING… AGAIN! WE’RE HAVING ANOTHER BABY!!! 2019 another PenaVega is joining the family!” wrote Carlos, 29.

“This year we will officially be able to say we have ‘kids’! Our minds are blown and we are beyond blessed and excited for our growing family!!!” he shared. “Let the journey begin!!! #ClearbluePartner #ClearblueConfirmed.”

This will be the second child for Alexa and Carlos, who were married in January 2014. They are parents to son Ocean, whom they welcomed in December 2016.

Ahead of Ocean’s arrival, Alexa opened up about her difficulty conceiving.

“We tried to get pregnant for a good six months without luck. When it’s not working, you think, ‘Is there something wrong with me?’” the former Nashville star told Fit Pregnancy and Baby for their December 2016/January 2017 issue.

“I struggled with an eating disorder when I was younger. It was a big part of my life, and I was worried that I wasn’t getting pregnant because of some long-term damage from what I’d put my body through,” she admitted. “Even though my doctor said I was healthy, I felt so guilty about it.”

Luckily, she came to terms with the feelings she was having, and was in a much better place as a result.

“It’s such an emotional ride, and you blame yourself for everything,” she said. “What brought me peace was my faith in knowing that it would happen when it was supposed to happen.”

Days before the pair announced the pregnancy, Alexa reflected on her marriage, faith and family in a post on Instagram:
