Cue the dramatic music, a baby is on the way for Young and the Restless star Jason Thompson!
A rep for the actor confirmed to PEOPLE that Thompson is going to be a second-time dad. He and wife Paloma Jonas are expecting a baby girl who will join older brother Bowie Banjo. Little Bowie is celebrating his first birthday on May 23, so Thompson and his wife are about to have their hands full!
“The last year with our son Bowie has been the best of our lives,” said Thompson, 40. “I love being a dad, and we’re really looking forward to bringing a girl into our little family.”
The soap actor continued, saying, “No doubt Paloma is excited. Between me, Bowie and our dog, she’s anticipating a sweeter smell in our home!”
Thompson, who has been with Young and the Restless since early 2016, is much more widely known for his role as Dr. Patrick Drake on General Hospital, a part he played for more than a decade.
He and Paloma, who runs a successful lingerie line and is a fashion designer, tied the knot in Canada in 2015. Congrats to the growing family!
