Candice Accola has a very special reason to be excited right about now.
The countdown to The Vampire Diaries Season 7 opener, which airs on Thursday, October 8 at 8/7c? Not quite.
The fact that the actress is expecting her first child!!!!
The 28-year-old beauty revealed the major life news by sharing a photo of her baby bump on Instagram.
The picture also features her husband Joe King, her two step-children and a homemade t-shirt that says “Baby” surrounded by a heart right over her stomach.
“Sometimes a Saturday is best spent painting t-shirts and taking an awesome family photo," Accola wrote as a caption to the heartwarming image, adding:
"Happy Monday everybody! #ThatAintNoBurritoinMyBelly Thank you to our friend @softspiritstrong for coming over and snapping this sweet pic."
King is a member of The Fray and, as you can see here, he donned a matching white T-shirt that had "SUPERDAD" written on it.
This will be the couple's first child together.
