The timing is right: Anna Faris and Chris Pratt are going to be parents!

The Dictator actress, 35, and her Parks and Recreation star husband, 32, are expecting their first child this fall, her rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

After tying the knot in 2009, the couple were open about their dreams of a large family, but admitted the timing was “so hard in this industry.”

Still, The Five Year Engagement actor made it clear he was ready to fall into fatherhood sooner rather than later. “Chris wants a big family,” Faris told PEOPLE.

The actress stars alongside Sacha Baron Cohen in The Dictator, opening May 16, and is currently filming Working Title’s I Give It a Year in London with Rose Byrne and Simon Baker.

Pratt is filming Zero Dark Thirty for director Kathryn Bigelow and will appear with Channing Tatum in Ten Year this September.

Aw, yay! I was just wondering the other day if they were going to have kids, oddly enough. Congratulations to them!

I love Chris on Parks and Rec, and have been a fan of his since Everwood.

Horray….I love Anna’s acting so incredibly much. She is so incredibly funny and I think that’s her all the more beautiful!

A large family? She’s 35 years old. Congratulations anyway, having a baby is a true blessing.

Teena on

Congrats to the couple! I love them, they are always a “low-key” Hollywood couple. They stay pretty much out the limelight even though they are still both working! Gonna be one cute little one!

Congratulations to both Chris and Anna. They are incredibly talented people. Glad to see Chris Pratt getting more roles. He is so undervalued for his talents. I knew he was special the first time I saw him in Everwood. Anna is sweet and funny at the same time.(Not always easy to pull off.) Nice they don’t throw their relationship in everybody’s face.

Julianna on

YAY! Anna and Chris are going to be awesome parents.

Christina on

wait, is she actually pregnant? the wording is confusing…

Leslie on

I am Chris Pratt’s biggest fan and I loved Anna in Happy Face! If you haven’t watched Chris in Parks and Rec, you are really missing out! He is the best! Great show, and not just because I’m from Indiana.

Courtney on

I’ve been a Pratt fan since his Everwood days. Congrats to them!

jeff on

boohoobytch- How is the wording confusing? This post is worded like most pregnancy announcements are here.

Kandee43- I thought that too at first, but they have the resources to use other methods of achieving their goal of a large family (surrogacy, egg donation, adoption, etc.) if Anna’s age catches up with her before they’re ready to be done having kids. 🙂

patrick douglass on

Wow,,,, she is the cutie from the Scream movies,, LOVE HER

Hea on

I liked her in the Dictator. Would’ve never guessed she’s 35 though!
