Darren Criss and Mia Swier, who welcomed their first child in April 2022, now have another baby on the way. The actor announced on Friday, December 22 with a hilarious Mamma Mia poster. It had his family's faces edited onto the cast's bodies, along with two positive pregnancy tests.

Using a humorous movie poster, Darren announced the news on Instagram. With good reason, the actor billed the event as a sequel. Bluesy, their 1-year-old daughter, was welcomed into the world in April 2022 by him and Swier. 

The Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again poster was used in the announcement, but Criss, Swier, and Bluesy's faces were photo-shopped over Amanda Seyfried, Lily James, and Meryl Streep, the actors who starred in the 2018 sequel. He wrote in the caption, “And COMING SOON….Let's hope the sequel is better than the photoshop."


Wishes pour in for the expectant couple 

Their celebrity friends showered them with congratulations. “Ur hilarious. CONGRATULATIONS,” Vanessa Hudgens, the star of High School Musical, wrote. Chrishell Stause of Selling Sunset said, "Congrats!" Maude Apatow, the eldest daughter of actor Leslie Mann and director Judd Apatow, made a series of heart-eye and red-heart emoji comments on Euphoria.

After nearly nine years of dating, the couple got married in 2019, in front of their friends in family in New Orleans. "That was one of the most incredible events of my entire life. The most magical experience. Say what you will about the construct of marriage and tradition: weddings are amazing," Darren said to PEOPLE in April 2020.
