Melissa George is pregnant.

The 'Hunted' actress is expecting a baby with her French millionaire boyfriend Jean-David Blanc and are overjoyed with the happy news, according to the New York Post newspaper.

The couple have started to tell family and close friends they are becoming parents who have all been equally thrilled for them.

Melissa and Jean-David have been dating after over a year after first meeting at a BAFTA after-party in 2012 where they were spotted passionately kissing.

The 37-year-old actress previously admitted she was ready to have kids after finding the right man for her.

She said: ''I am going to be a mother, absolutely obvious no matter how, when, what. I really am picking the right father for my child. It's very simple.

''Words can't describe, sometimes, things that feel so right. I wouldn't want to butcher it by doing that. I had a marriage, and lots of other things, and they were really, really hard. I had to take a break this year. I thank God he dropped this man into my life.''

Melissa was previously married to film director Claudio Dabed but they split in 2011. She then went on to date music mogul of Russell Simmons.
