Cat’s expecting a kitten.

So You Think You Can Dance host Cat Deeley and her husband, Irish comedian Patrick Kielty, are having a baby, she announced via social media Thursday.

“Exciting news … Paddy and I are so happy to be expecting our first child in the spring,” the British television presenter, 38, tweeted. “Lucky us.”

Last month Kielty, 44, joked to the Birmingham Mail that he “hopes any child we might have has Cat’s looks and my accent.”

The couple were married in September 2012 at Saint Isidore’s College chapel in Rome.

So You Think You Can Dance airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on Fox.

SO excited for Cat! I watched SYTYCD this week and thought maybe – but I thought that 3 years ago and I was wrong. Anyway – Congratulations Cat – you are going to look AMAZING pregnant!
