There’s a baby on the way for Sara Rue!

The Rules of Engagement star, 33, and her husband Kevin Price are expecting their first child, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

Due early next year, Rue — who debuted her baby belly in a black wrap dress during ABC’s fall preview party in Beverly Hills on Tuesday — has yet to find out the sex of her baby on the way.

“Over the moon to announce my pregnancy! My bump will be doing its first red carpet tonight,” she Tweeted earlier in the day. “In the second tri, over the morning sickness phase, due early next year!”

In 2010, the then bride-to-be became the spokeswoman for Jenny Craig and lost over 50 lbs. before tying the knot with Price in Pacific Palisades, Calif. in May 2011.

Rue will next appear opposite Reba McEntire on Malibu Country, premiering in November on ABC.

Oh, my God! I’m so happy for Sara and her husband! She looks beautiful pregnant, and is an amazing actress: her character Stephanie was my favorite of Leonard’s girlfriends in The Big Bang Theory.

It drives me crazy when natural redheads dye their hair blonde. They never look right. Keep the red Redheads

Cindy on

I’m VERY happy for her – I think she’ll be a wonderful mother and have ‘fun’ with it all. Congratulations to her and hubby. :-)

meghan on

I’m pretty sure the red was dyed too, Anon. Not that that has anything to do with her happy news…

NM on

Never heard of her.

Sunny on

Oh I hope she doesn’t over feed and gain more weight than she needs for a healthy baby.

DaisyMoon on

Wow…she really looks fabulous.

I want her boobs.

Rachel on

Sunny..what is wrong with you

Tina on

Good for her. She’s only 33? Seems like she’s been around for a longer time than that.

MRS JP on

Congrats to Sara and her hubby. They will be fantastic parents and she is such a terrific actress :)

@ sunny, NM, Meghan and all the other negative idiots here and whom are too quick to judge, GET OVER YOURSELVES!

There certainly is a baby boom in Hollywood. I wonder if a “baby bump” and an infant are the new must have accessories.

Big Fan on

She needs her gorgeous red hair back, blonde does not suit her.

sherquetta on

Amaryllis on

Damn. Lose all that weight and then ruin your body.

Linda on

I like Sara but I hate the stupid weight lose commercials She and others do. I lost weight without it! Anyway….I’m happy for her and hope she has a healthy baby. I just hope we don’t have to suffer through seeing her talk about weight lose again. PLEASE NOOOOOOO!

Thank you for not calling it a “Baby Bump”. I am so tired of seeing baby bump. And congrats to her and her husband.

TwinMommy on

Awesome news! And thank god they didn’t use the term “baby bump”…its ridiculous…

Jeff on

Same here.

Olivia on

Congrats!

I think she looked prettier with more weight.

Michael Krager on

Sara played “the fat girl” on 90s TV show popular. Even then, I thought she was gorgeous, but she has just gotten better with age.

Mr. Wizard on

I am very fond of Sara. She is attractive, funny, talented, yet still seems like the girl next door. I am very happy for her and her husband. I think she will be a great mother and the kid will be the best fed baby in Hollywood.

amy on

The article actually referred to her “baby belly” and not her “baby bump”! Miracles do happen!!!!

Anonymous on

Congrats to them!

Cheryl on

Congrats on the baby AND for being married THEN having the baby.

I became acquainted with Sara and had looked forward to meeting her; unfortunately, she is a huge spoiled brat and I was extremely disappointed. I guess that’s why they call it “acting.” I was SO let down. Really and truly nothing like the nice characters she plays on TV. :( Sigh.
