Katherine Heigl is pregnant with her third child!

The actress and her husband of eight years, singer-songwriter Josh Kelley, are expecting a baby boy in January 2017, the couple confirmed in a statement to PEOPLE.

“The Kelley clan is thrilled to announce that we are expecting a third addition to our family,” they said.

Their son will join their two adopted daughters (and soon-to-be big sisters!), 4-year-old Adelaide Marie Hope and 7-year-old Naleigh Moon.

“Naleigh and Adelaide could not be more excited to welcome their new sibling into the fold and Josh and I are overflowing with joy and gratitude,” Heigl added.

Heigl and Kelley adopted their first child, Naleigh, from South Korea in 2009. Adelaide, who was adopted domestically, joined the family in 2012.

The couple met in 2005 when Heigl appeared in one of Kelley’s music videos, then wed two years later in a private ceremony in Park City, Utah, where they live a quiet life with their two girls.

“This is an incredibly exciting time for us filled with hope, anticipation, and hormones. Well, only I’m filled with hormones, but everyone in the family gets to enjoy them,” Heigl joked in the statement. “We couldn’t be more excited to be able to finally share this news with our fans and are looking forward to continuing to share the journey with you all. xoxo, Katie and Josh.”

Congratulations to the soon-to-be family of five!
