Once Upon a Time real-life couple Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas have welcomed their second child – a son named Hugo Wilson Dallas.  E! News reported that the baby was born in Los Angeles on June 1st.

According to, the name Hugo is of German origin and means “Bright in mind and spirit.”  Baby Hugo joins big brother Oliver Finlay Dallas, 2.

Earlier this year, Goodwin told ET that the couple were having trouble coming up with a name for their second son.  “We’re trying on different things…It’s hard because we are having a boy and we blew it.  I mean not blew it, but Oliver to us is like the best name on the planet. So how do we follow Oliver with another name that is just as stunning.”

Oliver, according to the actress, was ready to be a big brother.  She told ET, “He definitely understands the concept of a baby…He pulls up my shirt every day and pats my belly and says, ‘Hello, baby.'”

Goodwin and Dallas married in 2014, just a month before Oliver was born.
