Baby Boy on the Way for Reid Scott

Surprise: Reid Scott is going to be a dad!

While walking the red carpet at Sunday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards at the Shrine Exposition Center in Los Angeles, the Veep actor bestowed his newlywed wife, Elspeth Keller, with her own accolade.

With the mom-to-be — who showed off her bump in a black, form-fitting gown — cradling her baby belly, Scott tells PEOPLE, “We’re having a little boy — I’m just psyched. I have the hottest wife on the carpet.”

The couple will welcome their first child in April.

Scott, 37, wed his longtime love during an intimate ceremony at downtown Los Angeles’s Maguire Gardens in June before spending their honeymoon in Fiji.

Veep is nominated for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a comedy series.

On Saturday night, the parents-to-be stepped out for the Entertainment Weekly SAG Awards Party, where Keller wrapped her bump in a yellow dress, topping off her belly with an over-sized bow.
