Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer are expecting their first baby together! The "True Blood" costars met on the set of the popular HBO series back in 2007 and tied the knot in the summer of 2010 on the beach in Malibu. This is the 29-year-old's first pregnancy although she's been a stepmom to Moyer's two children from a previous relationship, Billy and Lilac.

The 42-year-old English actor and his 29-year-old wife are said to be "elated by the news."

"The Squid and the Whale" actress was the second youngest actress to win an Academy Award at just 11-years-old for her role as Flora in "The Piano." While there are many other Hollywood couples expecting a bundle of joy this year, there are also several other child stars who are pregnant!

Melissa Joan Hart made a similar announcement on Tuesday when she revealed that she and her hubby, musician Mark Wilkerson, were expecting baby number three! The former "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" star celebrates her 36th birthday on April 18, giving her something extra special to celebrate.

The new baby will be welcomed by two big brothers, Mason, 6, and Braydon, 4. The "Melissa & Joey" star told Parents.com, "Since I was little, I knew that I wanted to have children. Having a big family has always been very important to me, and I would hate for my kids to not be able to experience that."

Another very famous child star, Drew Barrymore, is said to be expecting her first baby. Although the "E.T." actress has not confirmed the news, her expanding baby bump tells it all. In February, the "Charlie's Angels" star was photographed in Beverly Hills with her fiance, Will Kopelman, holding a picture of a sonogram in her hand.

A source told US Weekly, "Drew will be an amazing mom. She's seriously the coolest person in the world. ..Very generous and doting."

The cute couple have not revealed the details of their upcoming ceremony, although they are said to have picked a summer wedding date. The 34-year-old art consultant popped the question in Sun Valley, Idaho over the recent holiday season.
