Jenna Dewan announced a very exciting piece of news this week:

She and boyfriend Steve Kazee are expecting a baby!

It’s unexpected, but it’s true!

“We are beyond overjoyed and couldn’t be happier to be expanding our family!” the couple told People Magazine on Tuesday morning, keeping the announcement short, yet awfully sweet.

The 38-year old former World of Dance host welcomed her first child, Everly, in May 2013 with her estranged husband, Channing Tatum.

Those attractive stars stunned the universe about a year and a half ago upon announcing their marriage was over.

"We have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple," Tatum and Dewan said at the time, adding in their joint statement:

"We fell deeply in love so many years ago and have had a magical journey together.

"Absolutely nothing has changed about how much we love one another, but love is a beautiful adventure that is taking us on different paths for now.

"There are no secrets nor salacious events at the root of our decision – just two best-friends realizing it’s time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives as possible"

Dewan and Kazee then started dating early in the fall of 2018, but they’ve kept their romance largely under the radar, prompting many to ask the following question about learning the actress is expecting:

Who the heck is Steve Kazee?!?

For starters, he actually won the 2012 Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical for Once.

Among other biographical tidbits?

Steve Kazee was born and raised in Ashland, Kentucky.

He is an alumnus of Fairview High School and Morehead State University.

He moved to New York City in 2002 and received his MFA from the Graduate Acting Program at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts.

He’s also one of the busy, successful, veteran actors whose face you may very well recognize, even if you can’t remember his name.

He has enjoyed roles on such programs as Numb3rs… NCIS… CSI: Crime Scene Investigation… Elementary… Drop Dead Diva… and Shameless.

“She’s very happy,” a People source says of Dewan in reference to her romance with Kazee and, we presume, her pregnancy.

In February, Kazee shared a tribute to her on Valentine’s Day with a photo of Dewan looking at the camera from a bed.

This is what he wrote at the time:

“Somehow, inexplicably, I’ve been granted the honor to have this be the person that I get to be side by side with throughout this wild journey we call life.

"Jenna I don’t know what I did to deserve your love but I will always be so thankful that our lives found their way to each other. Here’s looking at you, kid.”

How sweet, right?

Sounds like prime father material to us!
