Another Child for Uma and Ethan

06/28/2001 at 10:50 AM EDT

"The Golden Bowl" star Uma Thurman, 31, and her husband of five years, "Snow Falling on Cedars" star Ethan Hawke, 30, are fixing up the nursery again. "It's true," their spokesperson, Robert Garlock, confirmed to "They are expecting a child in January." It will be the couple's second. Daughter Maya Ray Thurman-Hawke was born in 1998. Shortly before Maya arrived, reported PEOPLE, her parents-to-be bought a $1.25 million four-bedroom house a half-hour drive north of New York City. (They also have a Greenwich Village apartment.) "Uma will be a completely devoted mother," predicted her former acting coach and friend Cindia Huppeler, whose son is Thurman's godchild. Thurman was also perfectly suited to being a mom, claimed her "Pulp Fiction" costar, Samuel L. Jackson. "She's a very loving and giving person." After Maya's birth, Thurman told the Associated Press, "I think motherhood is sexy. I don't expect anyone else to, but for me it's one of the sexiest things I've ever done. By far."
