First she slayed as Buffy’s sidekick and cheered alongside Kirsten Dunst on the big screen—now she’s taking on an entirely different role—because actress Eliza Dushku is pregnant!

The actress and her husband, Peter Palandjian, recently announced that they’re expecting their first child. Dushku told Us magazine, “We’re just very excited.” The soon-to-be first-time mama also added, “We just got married in August. It’s a special year for us.”

Along with her new marriage and even newer baby bump, Dushku has plenty of other awesomeness going on in her life. The actress dished to Us, “I’ve been living in Boston. I’m about to be a senior in college. I’m studying holistic healing and addiction and trauma. And I’m newly married and I’m just so excited about this next chapter in my life.”

Dushku went on to say, “You know, I’ve been acting since I was 9 years old and I’m sort of finding these new things that I’m really excited about. It’s been a big year but a great year.”

When can we expect to see the happy couple’s new little love? As of now, it’s anyone’s guess. The pregnant mom is keeping mum on the subject. But with a reportedly visible bump, it’s likely that her due date isn’t too far off.
