Actor Jordan Fisher announced exciting news today. He and his wife Ellie are expecting their first child together! The actor, who is currently starring in Broadway’s Dear Evan Hansen, shared a collab Instagram video with his wife to reveal the news.

In the emotional video, Ellie begins by sharing the news with Jordan. She asks him to close his eyes as she puts a jacket on him. The jacket had the word “Papa” on it, but before he could open his eyes, she tells him to put his hands in his pockets. As soon as he does, he feels something, and immediately his mouth drops before crying tears of joy. It’s a pregnancy test!

The next clip in the video shows Ellie finding out she is expecting. She is crying and shaking as she holds up the pregnancy test to the camera. The video ends with the couple announcing to their families, done via video calls, the gender of their child. The families had cupcakes with filling that revealed: it’s a boy! “and the journey begins…,” the couple captioned their video. “we can’t wait to meet you 💙”

The To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You star and his wife, a clinical nutritionist, tied the knot in November 2020 in a private Disney’s Fairy Tale Wedding ceremony in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort. The couple exchange vows they wrote themselves at the stroke of midnight on the back courtyard of the Cinderella Castle. “We already had such a great foundation. We’ve been together for a long time and been friends even longer than that,” the Dancing with the Stars champion shared with People. “We’re partners in life.”

Congratulations to Jordan and Ellie on growing their family! We wish them lots of love as they prepare to embark on this exciting new adventure.
