Actress Kelli Giddish is gearing up to add another baby to her family! The Law and Order: Special Victims Unit star is pregnant with her third child. This little one will be her first baby with her husband Beau Richards.

Earlier this month, fans of the long-running crime drama suspected if the actress, who portrays the role of Amanda Rollins, was pregnant in real-life. Her character was featured on an episode of Law & Order: Organized Crime with a baby bump. Fans wondered if her pregnancy had been written into the show, as her first two pregnancy had been. Now, it appears life really is imitating art as Kelli is currently expecting. The news was confirmed by her reps shortly after a friend of Kelli’s, New York Fashion Week creator Fern Mallis, shared an image of the friends celebrating Memorial Day Weekend. Kelli was wearing a burnt-orange jumpsuit in the image and Fern captioned the post, in part, “a very pregnant @kelligiddish joined us.”

Kelli is currently mom to two sons: Ludo, 7, and Charlie, 4. She shares her boys with her ex-husband Lawrence Faulborn. Kelli and Lawrence divorced in 2018. The All My Children alum tied the knot with her current hubby, who works outside the entertainment industry, in November 2021. In February 2022, three months after getting married, the actress gushed about her new husband. “Happy beyond words to have met and married my love, my man, my sweet beau 11/7/21 #NOLA @botorious you are my light, and the most supreme step-father Ludo and Charlie could ask for.”

Last December, the actress officially left the 24-seasons-running drama, though she had returned for episodes periodically. At the time, she shared that it “seemed [like] the right place to leave.” She elaborated on her decision revealing, “I am so excited about things going on in my personal life and kind of the mirroring of what’s going on in my personal life and in Rollins’, there’s a lot of joy to be experienced. I started playing her in my late 20s, so I’ve played her in three decades of my life, which is nuts. It’s insane.”

Congratulations to Kelli and Beau on the news of their first child together!
