Chris Klein is going to be a dad!

The actor announced via Twitter on Monday (which also happened to be his birthday) that he and wife Laina are expecting their first child in July.

“My beautiful wife Laina and I are expecting our first child. 23 weeks along. Gratefully blessed on my 37th B-Day,” Klein wrote.

After dating for four years and a December 2014 engagement, the couple tied the knot last August in front of friends and family at Montana’s Rainbow Ranch, followed by a honeymoon in Italy.

“Laina holds herself with such grace,” Klein tells PEOPLE. “I am a very grateful man. Promising forever was definitely the highlight … Nothing gets better than that.”

Klein’s gratefulness is hard-earned. Following two DUI arrests and a jail sentence, the American Pie star has been sober since 2010.

“I would have died, and I think about that every single day. It got to the point where I was a fragile shadow of the young man that came into this business,” he told PEOPLE in 2012. “Today, I’m the luckiest guy alive.”

I still think Suri Cruise is his real daughter. She has his eyes.

Marc on

Did he get her by saying ” Suck me Beautiful?! “…….

Is he still sober? I hope so.

A Finn on

Is she Finnish? Her name is, although more like grandma’s name these days.
Congratulations anyway!

I thought he had dated Katie Holmes for long time, they didn’t make it.

Jan on

Yup, I think he is Suri’s real father too. They are identical. I think Tom “saved” Katie when Kris dumped her and she was clearly pregnant very early on.

Van on

Yes Suri does look like him.

Poppy on

Now Chris will have two kids.
