"I can’t wait for my own Littlefoot to get here!" Wood tweeted earlier in July, along with a link to a clip from The Land Before Time.
She recently shared news of some weird cravings she has been having, and also regularly joked about her pregnancy.
"When a pregnant woman says she just 'rolled' out of bed, she is being very serious," she tweeted a few days later.
It seems fitting then that Wood also announced the news through Twitter on Monday.

The 25-year-old actress has been acting since childhood, having landed her first role at the age of seven. She has appeared in Once and Again, The Ides of March, Across the Universe and The Wrestler.
Jamie Bell was also a child actor, and he may be best known as the title character in Billy Elliott in 2000. He comes from a family of dancers and landed the role before having done any other acting parts.
The couple hasn’t let the pregnancy slow them down. Bell has as many as six films currently in production, and Wood has four.
The new baby boy is the first child for both Wood and Bell.
