Actress Natalie Zea is expecting a baby with her husband, actor Travis Schuldt, PEOPLE has exclusively learned.

Zea, 40, who attended the premiere of her new movie, Too Late, with John Hawkes, at the L.A. Film Festival Thursday night, is due in the fall, the actress’s rep confirms to PEOPLE.

After 10 years together, the couple — who met when they costarred in the soap opera Passions — got engaged in Kauai, Hawaii, in 2013, and married last summer.

This is the first child for both Schuldt, 40, best know as Keith Dudemeister on Scrubs, and Zea, a Justified alum who also starred as Claire Matthews on The Following.

Zea stars in the upcoming Jason Jones comedy, The Detour, for TBS.

All the people asking who she is – ever hear of Google? It takes seconds to look someone up – about the same amount of time it takes to ask “WHO?!”

Jennifer on

I remember her on Dirty Sexy Money.

And to the Who’s? Try Google or IMDB.

She was also on Justified

Is it Raylan’s? Natalie Zea and Timothy Olyphant made a dashing couple on Justified.
