Actress Melissa George expecting her first baby

Hunted actress Melissa George is expecting her first baby with her French boyfriend Jean-David Blanc.

"Baby on the way! So so happy...xx," the 37-year-old posted on her Twitter account on Sunday.

It will be the first child for the Australian actress and her millionaire beau.


The prospective parents have been together for over a year after being spotted together at a BAFTA afterparty in 2012.

Former Home and Away star Melissa has previously spoken of her desire to become a mum.

''I am going to be a mother , absolutely obvious no matter how, when, what. I really am picking the right father for my child. It's very simple.

''Words can't describe, sometimes, things that feel so right. I wouldn't want to butcher it by doing that. I had a marriage, and lots of other things, and they were really, really hard. I had to take a break this year. I thank God he dropped this man into my life.''


Melissa dated music mogul Russell Simmons before meeting Jean-David.

She became a household name after the success of BBC series Hunted. Her current projects include The Good Wife and a new horror drama Gothica.
