Eric Dane isn’t the only Grey’s Anatomy star expanding his family.

Less than a month after news broke that Dane’s wife Rebecca Gayheart is expecting again, Dr. McSteamy’s costar Sarah Drew — who plays Dr. April Kepner on ABC’s hit show — is announcing a pregnancy of her own.

The actress, 30, is due in January, her rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

This will be the first child for Drew and husband Peter Lanfer.

And there we go! The GA baby boom continues!

Congratulations to Sarah and her husband!

Tee on

Wow, congratulations! I wonder if they’ll write the pregnancy into Grey’s story line, make April pregnant?

Laura on

Ha! That would be really funny Tee, as her character is supposed to be a virgin…

rebekah on

looks like she’ll be behind a desk and holding lots of clipboards next season!

Jamie on

They are going to make the most adorable parents ever. SO happy for them!!!

Grey's Fan on

@Laura, she slept with Alex so the virginity went out the window lol!

Marva on

@Grey’s Fan: No, she didn’t. She left the room when Alex was too straightforward.

Jillian on

She never slept with Alex!

She just got promoted on the show so I am betting they won’t write it in.

Diane on

@Marva

You’re right that April is still a virgin but it was Alex who left the room after after his outburst (April stayed laying on the bed).

Adrienne on

I was totally blown away when they promoted her to chief- never was expecting that so who knows? Maybe they will make April get preggers her first time? It happens! LOL. Either way- congrats guys…. looking forward to the name.

Tee on

Laura, you’re right! I had forgotten that part! In that case, it would be really interesting to see how they managed to write it in! Either way, I’m very happy for Sarah and her husband!

Grey's Fan on

@Marva, lol, clearly I misunderstood the scene then. Thanks for clearing that up! 🙂

Alli on

I don’t watch Grey’s, but I loved her on Everwood. 🙂 Congrats to her and her husband.
