Nicole Parker and husband Boris Kodjoe, who met on the television series Soul Food, have welcomed their second child, son Nicolas Neruda Kodjoe, PEOPLE has learned.

The boy was born on Tuesday in Atlanta at 11:13 a.m. Parker, 36, and Kodjoe, 33, already have a 1-year-old daughter, Sophie.

The couple, who also starred together in the UPN series Second Time Around, were married in Gundelfingen, Kodjoe's hometown in Germany's Black Forest, in May 2005.

"Our kids are going to be bilingual," Kodjoe told PEOPLE at the time. "So that's going to be a whole other tradition that I'm going to try to uphold."

While discussing his relationship with Parker and their successful careers, Kodjoe, told PEOPLE in 2004: "I count my blessings every day. I really have to pinch myself every once in a while. It's like, 'Wow! This is really my life.'"
