They confirmed the news Sunday night.

Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda and his wife, Vanessa Nadal, are expecting their second child together.

The couple confirmed their happy news following an appearance at the London Evening Standard Theatre Awards on Sunday evening.

Nadal, wearing a beautiful purple and gold dress, appeared to debut her blossoming baby bump as they walked the red carpet.

Soon afterwards, eagle-eyed fans began to ask the Tony Award winner about his wife’s baby bump – and questioned if they were expecting again.

He simply replied to the question:

“Oh hell yeah.”

Miranda first met Nadal, who is a lawyer and a scientist, while they were both attending Hunter College High School in Upper Manhattan, New York.

They tied the knot in 2010 and welcomed their first child, son Sebastian, in 2014.

The proud husband paid a moving tribute to Nadal during his acceptance speech at the 2016 Tony Awards, with a sonnet he wrote for her.

He read:

“My wife’s the reason anything gets done

“She nudges me towards promise by degrees

“She is a perfect symphony of one

“Our son is her most beautiful reprise

“We chase the melodies that seem to find us

“Until they’re finished songs and start to play

“When senseless acts of tragedy remind us

“That nothing here is promised, not one day

“This show is proof that history remembers

“We live through times when hate and fear seem stronger

“We rise and fall and light from dying embers

“Remembrances that hope and love last longer

“And love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love

“Cannot be killed or swept aside

“I sing Vanessa’s symphony, Eliza tells her story

“Now fill the world with music, love and pride.”
