Melissa Benoist and Chris Wood are going to be parents!
The couple took to Instagram on Wednesday to announce that they’re expecting their first child together.
“A non-canine child is coming to our family very soon!!! @christophrwood has always been an old dad by nature but now he’s going to be a real one!” Benoist wrote, along with a couple of photos of their growing family.
In the first picture, Benoist and Wood, both 31, are seen flashing their big smiles to the camera with their two dogs. The actress is holding up a tiny blue tee, while the actor is carrying one of their adorable fur babies. While the couple has yet to reveal the gender of their child, both of them are dressed in blue, potentially hinting that they’re expecting a baby boy.
The second photo is a black-and-white pic, where Benoist is seen resting her cheek on Wood’s shoulder from behind while wrapping her hands around his body. To draw some laughs, Wood appears to be wearing a fake baby bump in the picture
Wood shared the same pictures on Instagram but in reverse order. “The photo is a joke but the news is real…!!!” wrote the actor.
The baby on the way is the first child for both Benoist and Wood.
Since it’s not clear how far along Benoist is in her pregnancy, it’s uncertain if this will have any impact on the production of Supergirl, which has already been renewed for a sixth season.
This baby news comes six months after it was confirmed that Benoist and Wood tied the knot at a private estate in Ojai, California. This is the first marriage for Wood and the second for Benoist, who was previously married to her Glee co-star Blake Jenner.
Benoist and Wood met on the set of The CW’s Supergirl in 2016, where Benoist plays the titular role and Wood portrays Mon-El. News broke that the pair were dating in March 2017, and almost two years later, in February 2019, they announced that they were engaged.
Supergirl airs every Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
