Shiri Appleby is going to be a mom.

The actress and fiancé Jon Shook are expecting their first child in March, PEOPLE confirms.

“Thank you for all the well wishes,” Appleby, 34, says. “We can’t wait to meet our little Baby Shook!”

Shook, a chef and owner at Los Angeles restaurant Animal, proposed to the actress in Italy in July.

Appleby, who recently had guest-starring roles on Chicago Fire and Franklin & Bash, is best known for playing Liz on Roswell.

She’ll next appear on the second season of Girls as a new love interest for Adam.
