R&B singer Eric Benét and his wife Manuela Testolini are expecting their second child!

“She is due this summer," Benét's rep confirmed to Us Weekly exclusively.

The Grammy-nominated artist, 47, and wife shared the exciting news with the help of their 2-year-old daughter, Lucia Bella.

The couple posted a picture of Lucia standing in front of a to-do list featuring tasks such as “enter the world” and “steal hearts.” The last item on the list that was not checked was “become a big sister” with the due date below in parentheses.

According to E! News, the couple married in 2011 and welcomed Lucia a year later in December.

"She is perfect in every way, and as expected, Manuela is truly proving to be the world's best mother," Benét said. "She is so attentive, nurturing and loving."

Benét was previously married to Halle Berry for four years before calling it quits in 2005. Berry and Benét have no children together; however, he does have a 22-year-old daughter, India, from a previous relationship.

Testolini, 37, was previously married to Prince from 2001 to 2006 and had no children.
