Cobb had announced she was expecting the couple’s first child in February 2013. As a matter of fact, her best friend Jessica Simpson was also pregnant at the same time. Simpson was expecting her second child at the time. Faison told People that Cacee was so happy that she and her best friend were pregnant at the same time. In his words,

“Imagine if you and your best friend were pregnant at the same time — Cacee’s loving it. They hang out all the time anyway, but now they hang out and talk baby stuff, look at baby stuff online, and go shopping for baby stuff together.”

Less than two years after the birth of their first child, the husband and wife gave birth to their second child, a daughter,  Wilder Frances Faison on April 23, 2015. The doting mother introduced her newborn daughter to her fans the following day via Instagram. “Meet the newest love of our life, Wilder Frances Faison,” Cobb captioned the photo.

Besides being a wonderful mother to her two children, Cacee Cobb is also a stepmother to four kids of her husband Donald Faison. Faison fathered his first son, Shawn Faison in 1997, with his then-girlfriend Audrey Ince.

Faison has three children with his first wife, Lisa. To this date, the actor hasn’t talked about his divorce from his first wife, however, we believe the former pair separated due to their irreconcilable differences.
