Talk about some good genes!

Brooklyn Decker and Andy Roddick will welcome their first child this fall, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

“I’m happy to confirm Brooklyn and Andy are expecting a new addition to their family in the autumn of this year,” Decker’s rep, Jesse Parker Stowell, says.

The model turned actress, 28, who plays a mom on the upcoming Netflix show Grace and Frankie, announced the news on Instagram Saturday evening.

“So this happened… #the3ofus,” Decker captioned a photo of herself showing off her baby belly.

Decker and retired tennis player Roddick, 32, who were married six years ago at their home in Texas, already have two cute charges in their care: their bulldogs, Billie Jean King and Bob Costas.

Last year, the actress expressed her desire to start a family.

“I love kids. I definitely want kids,” Decker told PEOPLE last April. “I just have to figure out the timing of that.”

It’s shaping up to be an eventful month for the duo: Decker’s new show premieres May 8, and Roddick, who’s a host on Fox Sports 1 following his 2012 retirement, is throwing his annual Andy Roddick Foundation Gala on Monday. The entertainment for the evening? Their longtime friend Elton John, who also performed at their wedding.

Nice that they waited until they were settled into their marriage, especially since they married young. Good luck and God Bless.

Love that they waited and happy for them. They seem like a good couple. But please stop with the “so this happened” captions on Instagram. So over used and annoying!!
