The Help's Bryce Dallas Howard (30) and her hubby, Seth Gable, have welcomed their second child — and it's a girl! Bryce's dad, movie director Ron Howard tweeted the news just yesterday (and lots of excited tweets followed!):

"Beatrice Jean Howard-Gabel Born Jan 19 2012 8lbs 6oz Bryce & Baby B are spectacular Daddy Seth & brother Theo are beaming ear to ear :-)"

Very sweet name, huh? And, awww, what a proud grandfather/father! Love Ron Howard!

Baby Beatrice joins big brother Theo (almost 5).

It's well known that Bryce struggled with postpartum depression after Theo's birth in February 2007, and she wrote about it on Gwyneth Paltrow's GOOP blog, here. She probably has a nice support system in place now. From the looks of her dad's tweets, it definitely seems like she has a warm and loving one.

Congrats to the family!


Love! xo Haley-O
