Becki Newton Expecting First Child

07/02/2010 at 09:00 AM ET


Becki Newton is pregnant — and the happy news is causing some changes in character on her new show, Love Bites.

“She plays a virgin [in the pilot episode], so we have to make adjustments to that,” explains NBC’s executive vice president of current programming Vernon Sanders.

The show has been pushed back to midseason to accommodate the former Ugly Betty star’s pregnancy, as well as to resolve casting issues and find a new executive producer, USA Today reports.

This will be the first child for Newton, 31, and husband Chris Diamantopoulos, whom she wed in May 2005.
