Charlotte — er, Kristin Davis — just welcomed a son

Kristin Davis has adopted a second child, a baby boy, according to an exclusive announcement by journalist Marc Malkin, who posted the news on Facebook on Saturday. A rep for Davis has not yet confirmed Malkin's news.

"Kristin Davis is expanding her family," the post says. "I can exclusively reveal that the Sex and the City star has adopted a baby boy... Now she’s blessed times two!” Malkin wrote in his Facebook announcement. “Congrats!” he added.

Davis' son joins sister Gemma Rose Davis — now 7 — whom Davis adopted via domestic proceedings in 2011.

The actor and producer — also a Goodwill Ambassador for the U.N. Refugee Agency and a patron for the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust — spoke about adoption previously with Anderson Cooper in 2012. She confessed it was a terrifying process, "...partly because with adoption, you always know there’s the chance that it won’t work. So you’re on pins and needles," she said.

Davis continued to Cooper, “They tell you that when [your child] first comes, you should think of it as babysitting in case the birth mom changes her mind. Every state is different, but in [California], it’s 48 hours. So you’re trying to think that you’re a babysitter but that’s kind of impossible!”

In 2016, Davis participated in a sit-down conversation at The Greene Space in New York, where she spoke eloquently and poignantly about being the parent of a child of a different skin color.

“I am white. I have lived in white privilege," Davis said. "I thought I knew before adopting my daughter that I was in white privilege, that I understood what that meant. But until you actually have a child, which is like your heart being outside you, and that heart happens to be in a brown body, and you have people who are actively working against your child, it’s hard. It fills me with terror.”

Davis said of Gemma, “I always tell her… that her curls are beautiful, your black skin is beautiful. You’re beautiful. You’re powerful. You’re a goddess.”

We hope there's more news soon about Davis' newest addition. We can't help but think that Charlotte would be proud.
