After becoming an aunt recently, Jenna Fischer acknowledged, “I already wanted kids, but even more so now.”

Her wish is coming true.

The Office star, 37, and her husband Lee Kirk are expecting their first child, a rep for Fischer confirms to PEOPLE.

Fischer and Kirk were engaged in 2009 while both were vacationing in Europe and got married last July, with Survivor‘s Jeff Probst officiating the ceremony.

Fischer already has some experience in mommyhood. Her character Pam Beesly on NBC’s hit show had a baby with her on-screen hubby Jim Halpert, played by John Krasinski.

Yay! I knew it! (Figured it out a few months ago and those pictures from Wednesday proved it.)

Congratulations to Jenna and Lee! So happy for them.

I’m guessing this means Jim and Pam are having another baby on The Office.

I keep thinking CeCe Halpert will be getting a baby brother or sister–LOL. Congrats to Jenna and Lee!! :)

Congratulations to Jenna and Lee! I’m sure they’ll both make fantastic parents.

As for the pregnancy being written into the show, I doubt it. Jim and Pam’s daughter was just born a little over a year ago and many parts of the show were focused on her birth so they probably won’t repeat a similar story line with the same couple for fear of it being overkill.

So happy for her! She will be a great mom. I can’t wait!

Congrats Jenna! I can’t wait to see how NBC writes Jenna’s pregancy into the storyline of the office… Maybe Pam will have another baby and CeCe will get a little brother or sister. That would be soo cute :)
