Robbie Rogers and Greg Berlanti have welcomed their second child.

The former professional footballer and his director husband tied the knot in 2017 in a stunning ceremony and the couple welcomed their son Caleb, who was born via surrogate, to the world in February 2016.

Now, taking to social media, the couple revealed they have welcomed their second child, a girl called Mia.

Greg – who helmed Love, Simon – wrote on Instagram: “Welcome to the world Mia Barbara Rogers-Berlanti. 5/13/19. Our hearts and our family have grown even larger.

“@robbierogers has already mastered two child multitasking, big brother Caleb is being just sweet enough & I’m as thankful and in awe as ever.

“The “Barbara” is for my amazing Mom, who though she’s not here to share in this moment, will be watching over her granddaughter Mia forever— and laughing as Robbie and I figure out the parenting skills she mastered so perfectly.”
