Vince Vaughn is expecting another child. It’s official, as the words came out of his very mouth, straight into the ears of Ellen DeGeneres, her audience, and everyone else in the world once the show is live.

“We’re expecting our second child,” the Dodgeball star told Ellen in an online clip of the pre-taped chat. “Yeah, we’re very excited.” His wife, Kyla Weber, is due in early August. “I met the best girl in the world,” he said. “It gives you such a great purpose in your life. ... I’m very, very happy." Talking after his engagement, he told People magazine: “It’s the first time that I really want to have kids,” “I’ve been very fortunate in my career, and my life has been about that for so long that you get bored of it. You’re ready for your life to be about other people and other things.” The Vaughns wed in January 2010, and the actor's real estate agent wife welcomed daughter Locklyn 11 months later.

Vaughn’s new kid will be born into a world with not one Dodgeball film, but two, as a follow up to the hugely successful comedy, starring Adam Sandler, has been ordered. The 2004 film – a real winner at the box office with $114m - starred Vaughn as the slacker owner of a gym who bands together with his misfit friends and enters a dodgeball tournament to foil the plans of Stiller and his corporate gym.
