Over the weekend, actress Ashley Madekwe sneakily shared that she is pregnant! The Strays star posted an image to her Instagram Stories, which featured the actress with a growing baby bump. “Weekends look a little different now.”

In the photo, Ashley wore an all-black outfit: a black maxi-skirt paired with a black long-sleeve turtle neck. Her baby bump peeked through her clothes as she cradled her stomach. The Revenge star is expecting her child with her husband Iddo Goldberg. The couple, who co-starred in the series Secret Diary of a Call Girl, tied the knot in 2012. The actress didn’t reveal any details about her pregnancy including her due date or the sex of her baby.

Ashley posts infrequently on her Instagram feed but did share two posts in August gushing over her husband. In one post, she celebrated Iddo’s birthday, mostly sharing images of her other half with some that included the couple together. “The love of my life was born today. @iddophoto, you only get better with age. To know you is to love you. Happy Birthday my love.” A few days later, the County Lines star shared images from the couple’s vacation to Italy, reflecting on their years together. “We haven’t been to Italy together since our honeymoon 10 years ago. Can’t believe we waited so long. We fell in love all over again.”

Congratulations to Ashley and Iddo on the news of their first child! We wish them lots of love as they prepare to embark on the adventure of parenthood.
