There’s a baby on the way for Leonor Varela.

The Dallas star, 39, is expecting her first child with producer Lucas Akoskin this fall, her rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“It’s Leonor’s first child and the couple are over the moon,” adds the rep.

The Chilean beauty, who’s been heating up the airwaves as the villainous Marta Del Sol on TNT’s summer blockbuster hit, has previously appeared in Blade II and starred as Cleopatra in the television mini-series.

Akoskin is currently in production on Words with Gods.

So glad for her! I’m chilean and even when she lives all her life outside, we feel that she’s a awesome image for our country. A lot of bless for you Leonor!

Congrats to them! That being said, I noticed that the rep said that this is Lenor’s first child, but didn’t mention it being Lucas’s first child. So does that mean he has children already? Does anyone know?

Congrats!! she’s a good actress…
And her father was a GENIUS Ph.D. Francisco Varela (a Chilean biologist, philosopher and neuroscientist)…
