His ice bucket challenge may have left Chris O’Dowd chilled, but he’s definitely feeling warm inside: his wife is pregnant!

While accepting the viral dumping of cold water, the Bridesmaids actor revealed his wife, Dawn O’Porter, is expecting the couple’s first child.

“I’d like to nominate baby O’Porter,” O’Dowd, 34, says after recovering from the frigid splash in a video posted to Twitter on Wednesday.

Challenge accepted: O’Porter, 35, then poured a glass of water on her belly, prompting O’Dowd to say, “So brave!”

On Tuesday, O’Dowd — who has also appeared on Girls — and O’Porter, a British TV presenter, celebrated their second wedding anniversary.

Congratulations to the two! I love them as a couple and am sure they’ll make great parents.

All for the cause. I am so grateful ALS has another donation. ALS never would have gotten any donations if not for this challenge. Let’s hope all of these donations will equate to a CURE for the cruel disease that takes people’s lives away from their so cruelly.
Lou Gehrig put a name to this disease – and in his name we all need to do whatever it take to secure an end to anyone else suffering and dying from ALS.
Thanks Chris O-Dowd – for standing up to ALS and helping out.
