American Pie star Thomas Ian Nicholas welcomes second child with wife Colette

We LOVE the name!

American Pie star Thomas Ian Nicholas has become a dad for the second time this week, as he welcomed his second child with wife Colette.

The couple welcomed their second bundle of joy on on Wednesday 13th April, and it's a baby girl!

Thomas, 35, and Colette, who are already parents to four-year-old son Nolan River, decided to name their baby daughter Zoë Dylan Nicholas.

'I'm a dad ... again! We're so happy' the proud dad told People magazine, adding that his son was keen to help in the name picking process.

'Nolan really wanted to name his little sister Princess Leia. Even though we're all big Star Wars fans, we decided to name her Zoë Dylan. Nolan agreed as long as she becomes a Jedi', Thomas said.
