Another Homeland baby is on the way!

Actress Morena Baccarin, 33, and her husband director/writer Austin Chick are expecting their first child together, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

Baccarin — who plays Jessica Brody, the wife of former marine Nicholas Brody on the hit Showtime series — is currently in production for the show’s third season.

Fortunately, the mom-to-be won’t have to worry about balancing a heavy makeup routine with a new baby. When Baccarin — who wed Chick, 41, in November 2011 — isn’t busy shooting scenes in front of the camera, she’s “pretty low maintenance.”

“When I’m not working I’m definitely a no makeup girl. The most I ever do is a little tinted moisturizer and a little mascara and blush,” Baccarin, who was named one of PEOPLE’s 2013 Most Beautiful, said recently.

Hattie on

Chick??!!!!!!! Poor kid.

Miz on

Inara’s having a baby– but a spaceship is no place to raise a kid!

❤ Yay for Morena!

Magnolia on

Now SHE is definitely one of the most beautiful people!

LisaS on

The worst is that her gorgeous boyfriend (the huaband’s friend)- whom she loved on Homeland won’t be back !!

I feel her role is going to be really cut back, plot-wise.

But best wishes to her !!! She was awesome on V also I agree.

yeah on

she was awesome on firefly. maybe its a boy she can name him malcolm

Marlene on

Congrats!!! It will for sure be a beautiful baby. This reminds me that I’ve been wanting to see Firefly (and Serenity!) again.

Every once in awhile on ‘Homeland’ I expect her to say ‘We are of peace…always’ since she used to say that on the show ‘V’ all the time! I like her. Can’t believe she almost played Carmen, the tranny on ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’!

Caity on

Ever since firefly I have loved her 🙂 I wish her all the happiness in the world!

I thought she was best in Stargate SG1 as Adria, the Orisi.

She is beautiful but ‘no makeup’ means nothing at all. Her at home routine is a regular work look for most of us!

Speak for yourself guest. No woman should leave the house without lipstick, mascara, and tinted moisturizer at least (unless you look like Morena) if she has any self-respect.

homeland is a piece of hate & crap , a show no one watches but keeps getting seasons. so bizarre.

congrats on the baby. morena is gorgeous

Seriously Jennifer? You must be an idiot. HOMELAND is the best show on TV. Are you one of those nuts who thinks the characters are real and that Damien Lewis is a real terrorist whom we should HATE? How do you get through life being so stupid?

esme on

Guess you’re not the target audience; you know, people with brains who like to watch intelligent drama instead of stuff like Real Housewives? OK then.

@Hattie – can you not read? “Chick” is her husbands last name, not the name of the baby. Educate yourself before making foolish comments next time.

Sad to see her hair grow longer and longer (she puts it up 90% of the time – it doesn’t become and she knows it?) … She looked more beautiful with her crop …
