The couple showed off their son's green-themed nursery to some 200 friends – including Don Cheadle, Larenz Tate, Bill Bellamy, Judge Greg Mathis, Allen Payne and Laura Linney – at their baby shower earlier this month. "This is just the start of the tribe," Phifer, 32, told PEOPLE at the shower. "I want to have four or five kids." Phifer went on to say he's 'well-prepared' for the birth of his second son. “I know what it takes and I’m looking forward to it. I have to be right there. With my first son I cut his umbilical cord and everything, so I’m a hands-on father, to say the least.”
Phifer and his fiancee plan to tie the knot in the following year or so.
