The Help actor Wes Chatham is set to become a first-time dad.

Chatham's wife, U.S. Tv personality Jenn Brown, is expecting the couple's first child later this year (Dec14).

They wed in Chatham's home state of Georgia in April, 2012.

The baby news adds to what is fast becoming a very exciting year for the actor - he'll be among the stars of the next instalment of The Hunger Games franchise when Mockingjay - Part 1 is released in November (14).
