Baby on the Way for Justin Baldoni
Justin Baldoni just starred in the biggest role of his lifetime.
In an almost 10-minute clip, the Jane the Virgin star and his wife Emily channeled the actor’s onscreen character to reveal a bit of happy news of their own: they’re expecting!
As the proud parents-to-be let all their friends and family in on the exciting announcement — which left some jumping for joy, others in tears and a few shocked and speechless — they captured the reactions and compiled it all into the clip, which they uploaded to Baldoni’s YouTube channel Wednesday.
The final scene shows Baldoni and the mom-to-be turning on the camera, sitting down on the floor and opening an envelope that confirmed the sex of their baby on the way. But other than gasps and exchanged looks of excitement, they ultimately keep the big reveal under wraps.
The couple will welcome their first child in June.
After dating for more than a year, the actor put together an elaborate movie that showed Baldoni, 31, singing in a boy band and taking part in a flash mob, followed by clips of candid moments from the couple’s relationship.
The grand finale came when Baldoni walked into the restaurant where the actress had been watching the video and proposed.
In July 2013, they were married — a moment that was also captured on camera — during an outdoor ceremony in Corona, California.
