Maggie Gyllenhaal, Peter Sarsgaard expecting a second baby

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard are expecting their second baby

This post has been corrected. See the note below for details.

Congratulations to Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard: She is pregnant with their second baby.

On top of expecting a wee addition to the Gyllenhaal-Saarsgard gang, this means Jake Gyllenhaal soon will be an uncle twice over (We're picturing lots of goo-goo noises and stuffed animals around him too).

Maggie and Peter are already parents to 5-year-old Ramona, the teeny fashion plate they raise in -- natch -- Brooklyn. News of their pending second was first reported by People.

Gyllenhaal and Sarsgaard started dating in 2002 and wed in 2009. That same year, they took their act from home to the stage, co-starring in a production of "Uncle Vanya" off-Broadway.

But back to Uncle Jake.

Caring for an infant can mean sleep deprivation for any mother, so Maggie is especially lucky to have her movie-star brother on deck: Jake is known to have a very, very calming effect.

[For the record, 7:22 a.m. Nov. 29: A previous version of his post said a 2009 production of "Uncle Vanya" was done on Broadway. It was an off-Broadway production.]
