Devon Sawa is going to be a dad.
The Nikita star “and his wife [Dawni] are having a boy,” Sawa’s rep confirms to PEOPLE. “The baby is due the first week of January.”
The actor, 35, broke the baby news in understated fashion on Monday, Tweeting a nursery photo captioned, “Room’s almost done.”
Once fans realized what Sawa – known for earlier roles in Final Destination, Now and Then and Casper – was sharing, congratulatory messages flooded in.
“Thanks for all the well wishes. We are very excited,” he replied.
E! was first to report the happy news.
