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 DestinationNow 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.
