"After years of waiting for the perfect moment to have a child, we decided to go with this moment instead. And we couldn't be more thrilled," the actress joked to the mag.

The lovebirds met in acting class more than a decade ago and were married during a no-frills outdoor ceremony in Nashville, Tennessee, in 2011.
