MOUNT VERNON, Maine — A soldier from Maine who lost all four limbs during an explosion in Afghanistan and went on to start a foundation to help veterans has an announcement: He and his wife are expecting another child.

Travis Mills, of Manchester, made the announcement to TV talk show host Ellen DeGeneres this week. He and his wife, Kelsey, already have a daughter. Now, they're expecting a baby boy.

The retired staff sergeant and Michigan native appeared on the show this week alongside former NFL player Jason Vobora. Mills has been training with Vobora, who operates a gym in Texas.

The Travis Mills Foundation was created to help wounded veterans, and a retreat for vets is being created at the former Elizabeth Arden estate in Rome and Mount Vernon in Maine.
