Baby on the Way for Chris Klein
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.
“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.”
