Gail Simmons has a very special bun in the oven: she’s pregnant!

The Top Chef judge and her husband Jeremy Abrams are expecting their first child this winter, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

Simmons, 37, and Abrams, head of music programming company Audiostiles, tied the knot in New York’s Long Island City in 2008, with their wedding later featured in Martha Stewart’s Weddings.

On hand to celebrate the intimate ceremony with the couple was celebrity chef and fellow judge Tom Colicchio, who has since welcomed son Mateo Lev, now 2. Also dad to Luka, 3½, and Dante, 19, Colicchio will likely go from swapping recipes to parenting advice with Simmons!

Why do we care? She’s going to make a fool of herself on Top Chef. Maybe this will be her last season….
