Ian Ziering Welcomes Second Daughter

Monday, April 29th, 2013

The actor Ian Ziering and his wife Erin welcomed their second child, a girl named Penna Mae Ziering, this weekend, reports:

Arriving at 9:21 a.m. and weighing in at 6 lbs., 9 oz., their daughter arrived on big sister Mia Loren‘s second birthday.

“We didn’t plan it!” Ziering, 49, tells PEOPLE. “Mia was born a week late and Penna was a week early.”

Mia was introduced to her new sibling last night, the dad of two says. “She couldn’t wait to meet her. When she saw Penna she said, ‘Baby sister!’”

As with Mia’s moniker, the new baby’s name draws inspiration from family. Penna is in honor of Ian’s late father, Paul, while Mae makes her the fourth generation of women on Erin’s side to use the middle name. Erin’s mother, grandmother and great-grandmother all share it with the newborn.

“I’m so excited about having another girl, and I’m at this crazy point in the pregnancy where Erin is so magnificent to me in every way,” says the former Beverly Hills, 90210 star, 48. “I am so in love with my love.”

This also means that daughter Mia Loren, who turns two on April 25, is getting ready for her new role.
