Anna Faris is expecting her first child in the autumn.
The 35-year-old actress and her actor husband Chris Pratt are looking forward to the patter of tiny footsteps, her spokesperson has confirmed.
The couple, who married in 2009, had been open about wanting to start a family but Anna admitted the timing was "so hard in this industry".
She added: "Chris wants a big family."
Anna, who next stars alongside Sacha Baron Cohen in The Dictator, is filming Dan Mazer's romantic comedy I Give It A Year in London with Rafe Spall, Rose Byrne and Simon Baker.
