Congratulations to Homeland star Morena Baccarin who has announced that she is pregnant! Wahooo! As anyone who watches the series will know, the Brazilian actress plays Jessica Brody, who is the wife of the Damian Lewis-played double agent Nicholas Brody. The show is a huge success and an Emmy winner.

However, looks like Baccarin better be getting ready to take some time off the show, after she revealed to People that she and her husband, director and writer Austin Chick would be expecting their first child together. The star is currently in production for the show’s third season.

As well as Homeland, Baccarin has starred in several other shows, largely based in the sci-fi genre. These include Firefly (which had a follow-up film; Serenity), Stargate SG-1 and Stargate: The Ark Of Truth. She’s been married to Chick since the Autumn of 2011. The burgeoning actor hasn’t exactly had a huge career though he did see his first major film, XX/XY picked up on the back of an impressive showing at the Sundance Film Festival in 2002. He also co-produced the film Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead, which starred Ethan Hawke and Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
