There’s no Bones about it: Emily Deschanel is pregnant!

The actress is expecting her second child with her husband, actor David Hornsby, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

Deschanel, 38, and the It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star, 39, wed in 2010 and are already parents to 3-year-old son Henry.

In September, the mom-to-be told PEOPLE she was considering expanding her family — with a furry friend for her toddler.

“It’s something I really want for him, but we have a lot on our plate already,” she said.

But while the soon-to-be family of four might be holding off on getting a pet, the vegan actress. who often brings Henry along to visit rescue shelters, is determined to raise her children around animals.

“I want him to be comfortable with these animals and aware of them and why we choose not to eat them,” Deschanel recently told PEOPLE. “To have compassion for these animals is a great place to start, and that’s what I love for my son to gain from spending time with these animals.”

E! News was first to report Deschanel’s pregnancy.

Yay, congratulations to Emily and David! I suspect they’ll write it in again and we’ll find out at the end of the 200th episode next week.

Is he related to Nick Hornsby?

Aaaaaaw soo cute! Congrats, Emily and David!

@Leah – Do you mean Nick Hornby? No relation. Different last name.

Becky on

Not familiar with either one of them (know I’ll catch flak about that) but congrats on the new baby.

Nicole on

I’m really happy for them! I wish them lots of happiness at this special time. I’m sure Henry can’t wait to be a big brother.

Thanks Sacre🙂

And congrats Emily and David on the baby. They seem like a lovely family.

I hope they write it into the show and Bones and Booth have another baby. Christine is supposed to be around 4 years old now so it’s time. I think with everything the character Bones went through with her family it would makes sense for the writers to write it that she doesn’t want Christine to be an only child.

Also congrats to the happy couple in real life!

She’s so pretty!

Sara, I can actually see where Bones would want Christine to be an only child. She was abandoned by her entire family, her brother included. Not to mention Christine ISN’T an only, she has an older brother. Despite he does not live with them, he is still her brother through thick and thin. Sides there isn’t a darn thing wrong with being an only.

Either way, congratulations to Emily and her husband. I hope they have a healthy happy baby and find a puppy for the little man soon!

Christine should only be around 3…she was born after my recently turned 3 yo.

I doubt your son will want to eat dogs or cats any way.

Congrats to the Hornsbys, but please no new Booth baby, they promised us Bones would not turn into Parenthood. Booth barely mentions his older son now, what would another child do to the “forgotten child?”

Truthfinder on

It’s amazingly funny to me how serious the “Bones” lovers are taking this baby thing. My husband likes it and I have enjoyed some episodes myself. Says a lot for a TV show for fans to be so involved! 😉

Erin on

I’m not going to lie and say I would be upset if Booth and Bones had another baby…just saying🙂

Congrats to Emily & David, as well as Henry!

sandy- I sure hope not!😉 In all seriousness, Emily never actually specificied what type of “furry friend” they’re considering. For all we know, they might be thinking of getting a pot-bellied pig!🙂
