In December there will be a new member of the Kennedy clan.

Rep. Joe Kennedy III announced Monday that he and his wife, Lauren, are expecting their second child.

“This is the smile of a girl who is going to become a big sister,” Kennedy wrote on Facebook, posting a photo of his daughter, Eleanor, wearing a striped top with the words “Big Sister.”

The Massachusetts Democrat said he and his wife are “thrilled and grateful” about the new addition to their family, a baby boy due in December.
