Annaleigh Ashford is about to add a new role to her already impressive résumé.
The Masters of Sex star and her husband, actor Joe Tapper, will welcome their first child, a son, in early September, Ashford’s rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.
“We are so excited to be having a little boy,” Ashford tells PEOPLE. “Now we’ll finally have a place to put all of Joe’s St. Louis Cardinals memorabilia.”
The family’s new addition will join Gracie, Ashford’s pup.
Ashford and Tapper have been married since 2013, and it’s clear Ashford knew she’d found her Prince Charming immediately. In an interview with The New York Times following their nuptials, she said about her views on love, “I always knew I wasn’t going to waste my time with someone who wasn’t amazing. What’s the point?”
