Welcome...make sure you keep her indoors only and away from any intact males until she has weaned her kittens and been spayed. You may want to set her up with a nest for when it is time for her to deliver:
Prior to the time of delivery, a queening box should be selected and placed in a secluded place where the Mother and babies are away from the normal traffic of the household, but near enough that you can gain ready access should you need it. The box should be large enough for the cat to move around freely, but have low enough sides so that she can see out and so you can reach inside to give assistance, if needed. The bottom of the box should be lined with several layers of newspapers. These provide a private hiding place for the expectant and delivering mother and will absorb the birthing fluids. Use torn-up bed sheets or other soft fabric for the upper layers. The upper, soiled layers may be removed after delivery is complete with minimal interruption to the mother and her newborn kittens.
Given that you have another cat...you may want to find a room that she can be with her babies and not be disturbed by the male.
