Oh baby, baby!

Tia Mowry and her husband, actor Cory Hardrict, 31, are expecting their first child in early July, a source tells PEOPLE.

“This is something that they’ve wanted for a long time and they’re thrilled,” the source says.

The parents-to-be were married in 2008 in an outdoor ceremony in Santa Barbara, Calif. “You can tell they’re really in love,” wedding planner Robyn Goldberg told PEOPLE at the time.

Mowry, 32, who can currently be seen on BET’s The Game, starred in the 1990s sitcom Sister, Sister with her identical twin, Tamera Mowry.

According to reports, her pregnancy will be documented on a TV show on the Style Network later this year.

Now I think celebs are just doing it on purpose LOL. May as well keep your pregnancy under the radar by telling everyone while they’re “celebrating” the rest of Hollywood’s!

klutzy_girl, your comment just made me smile. Nice to see my friends and I are not the only ones with such a list. I’m usaully the one with the most un-anticipated guesses.On my list for first pregnancy this year: Diane Kruger, Drew Barrymore,Hilary Duff,Chelsea Clinton. I could see Alysson Hannigan giving Satyana a sibling. And a longshot: Vanessa Paradis and Johnny Depp.

Sorry for the off topic commment, I guess all these announcements trigger my imagination. On topic: These two are a really beautiful couple.

klutzy_girl on

Cecile, aww, I’m glad! Aly Hannigan is also on my list.

I wonder if Tia will have twins?

acorr on

Her husband is REALLY cute

erilynne on

Congrats to Tia and her husband. πŸ™‚

Sarah M. on

Fraternal twins can be either hereditary or happenstance. Identical, however, are always happenstance. So the fact that Tia has an identical twin shouldn’t affect whether she has twins or not. So if fraternal multiples run in her family, that would increase her odds for multtiples. Otherwise she has the same chance as any other woman her age.

I know 8 women who are due between now and the end of June. My sister would have been on the list, also(she was due Jan. 14th), but she delivered on Dec. 10th. It’s like there are pregnant women EVERYWHERE! Not just Hollywood, maybe…

Congrats to them! That baby’s sure going to be loved. Wishing for a healthy pregnancy and delivery. πŸ™‚

MiB on

@Shoshanna and klutzy_girl, not to spoil your hopes, but as an identical twin she has no greater chance than anyone else to concieve twins, identical twins are a fluke of nature (even though certain types of IVF slightly highten the chance that the egg splits). Had she been a fraternal twin, she would maybe have had a greater chance than average (depending on if “twins run in her family” or if it was just a coincidence that her mother released two eggs during the cycle she concieved).

Anyways, congrats to Tia and her husband!

elise on

wow and just to think i didnt even recongize yll two were together the way the couple was acting on 106 n Park yesterday smh oh well

Indira on

I think Gwen Stefani will also get on the baby bandwagon this year!

Nella on

Indira, I agree about Gwen Stefani being next to announce a pregnancy. I think either Kourtney or Khloe Kardashian will announce a pregnancy this year as well along with Naomi Watts, Chelsea Clinton, and Beyonce hehe πŸ™‚

jordan on

LoveCrazyBeautifulLife on

CelebBabyLover on
