It has been a busy morning for baby news, with actress Beverley Mitchell announcing that she has welcomed her second child, and now we have yet another wonderful report to share with you.


According to reports this morning, US actress Jennifer Carpenter is expecting her first child with her partner, Seth Avett.


The 35-year-old star, best known for her role as Debra Morgan in the drama series Dexter, confirmed the news to US Weekly via a representative.


The news comes just days after the star prompted engagement speculation with her musician boyfriend Seth, stepping out with a large diamond on her ring finger.


And in a double celebration, the representative also confirmed that the pair are indeed engaged and set to tie the knot.



Jennifer and Seth have been dating for the past two years.


This will be Jennifer’s second time walking down the aisle, having previously been married to her Dexter co-star Michael C. Hall. Avett also divorced his first wife, Susan, just before meeting Jennifer in 2013.


Congratulations to the happy couple on their wonderful news.
