DHCP Server

I am running dhcpd on my FreeBSD machine and have 2 clients that requests an
IP address. The one client is connected directly to the same network as the
BSD box, the other client is connected via a bridge on the first client. I
have a section in my /usr/local/etc/dhcpd.conf to assign a specific IP to
client #1:

host myhost { 
  hardware ethernet xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx;
  fixed address;

The problem is, both client #1 and #2 get assigned the same IP address which
results in a conflict (I'm guessing because they appear to be behind the
same MAC address). How do I work around this so that I can uniquely setup a
predetermined IP for both clients?

I'll appreciate any help, thanks!
