It's a good thing Jessica Capshaw gets to wear that big white coat while playing Dr. Arizona Robbins on Grey's Anatomy. The actress and her husband, Honest Company co-founder Christopher Gavigan, just announced that they are expecting their fourth child!

Capshaw broke the big news on Instagram while Christmas tree shopping on Sunday. "The holidays have certainly arrived...All of our lives are being added to by the lights, the music and cheer!!" she wrote. "This year our family has reason to further broaden our number four is on the way!! I am a lucky, lucky girl..."

Baby #4 will join big brother Luke, 7, and sisters Eve, 4, and Poppy, 3. No news on how far along Capshaw is, and we can't really tell from the Instagram pic, since she's standing behind her kids in a bulky green jacket.

Capshaw and Gavigan have been married since 2004, and the actress recently opened up to Good Housekeeping about balancing motherhood and work. "I love what I do and I think it shows," she said. "As my kids get older, they can see me as a mom who loves working."

Still, Capshaw said her favorite part of the day is "When my son gives me a hug out of nowhere.... I love the surprise element of being a mom."

She also loves spending time alone with Gavigan, a feat that may become a little more difficult once their family is six-deep. "We just spent four hours together during the day, and it was so exciting—outside, no children," she said. "We felt like we were having an affair."

So sweet! Congratulations, guys!
