04/06/2015 at 01:00 PM ET

Claire Coffee is ready to bump up her caffeine intake: Preparing for diaper duty is a full-time job!

“I expect a drastic increase in coffee consumption and time spent in the makeup chair, to cover up the impact of sleep deprivation on my face,” the mom-to-be tells Mini Magazine in its Spring 2015 issue.

The Grimm star, 34, who is expecting her first child with husband Chris Thile in May, is well aware of the challenges ahead. However, she seems to have it all figured out.

“I plan on hiring a top-notch cleaning service and making use of my mom’s offers of help as much as I can. She is the best mom in the universe and a retired nurse, so I’ll be in pretty good shape,” Coffee shares.

Claire Coffee: Why We’re Having a Hard Time Deciding on a Baby Name

03/20/2015 at 07:15 PM ET

Claire Coffee has already had a taste of pregnancy: Her Grimm character, Adalind Schade, welcomed a daughter in season 3.

And now that she’s pregnant with her first child in real life, the actress jokes that the experience is not much different!

“This morning, when I woke up, I was about to get in the shower and I just saw this knee or something swing across my abdomen, which, for Grimm, is very appropriate and eery, but it’s a little weird,” Coffee, 34, tells PEOPLE.

“Instead of just little kicks, it feels like a serpent … there’s a torso. Is that a hip? Is that a tiny butt? Which body part am I feeling now?”

Claire Coffee Debuts Baby Belly on the Red Carpet

01/26/2015 at 10:00 AM ET

Bump, there it is!

Grimm star Claire Coffee debuted her baby belly in a flirty floral Valentino frock while walking the red carpet at the Entertainment Weekly SAG Awards Party on Saturday.

Her pregnancy — the actress is expecting a son in May — made dressing for the big night a bit “difficult.” Although Coffee admits her options for the evening were limited, she said there was a silver lining to the short list of possibilities.

“It’s great because your decision making process is a lot quicker because you are deciding between one and a half things that could work,” she told PEOPLE in the days leading up to the party. “I’m deciding between vintage and this short Valentino dress.”

Claire Coffee is going to be a mom!

“We had definitely been planning for this because we both have such crazy schedules,” the Grimm star, 34, exclusively tells PEOPLE of expecting her first child with her husband, Chris Thile of the Punch Brothers.

“They talk about those mothering hormones kicking in around age 30 and that definitely is true. It’s been something I’ve been excited about for a while.”

In fact Coffee, who will welcome a son in May, was so eager to find out she was pregnant that she almost missed out on learning the happy news.

“I’m not a patient person and I didn’t realize you had to wait 10 minutes for the double lines to show up on those little pregnancy tests,” the actress says. “So I kept trying and just seeing the one line and I thinking, ‘Oh well, maybe next time.'”
