David Schwimmer has a lot to celebrate this holiday season: He is going to be a dad!

David Schwimmer and wife Zoe Buckman are expecting their first child, his rep confirmed to People, saying the couple "couldn't be more thrilled."

The Friends actor met Buckman, a photographer, in London in 2007. They announced their engagement in March 2010 and quickly married just a few months later in a secret ceremony that wasn't revealed until October -- coincidentally the same day his Friends sister Courteney Cox announced her separation from David Arquette.

In addition to baby-making, David Schwimmer's recent projects include producing and directing the drama Trust, starring Clive Owen and Catherine Keener as the parents of a girl targeted online by a sexual predator.

Buckman was a part-time photographer and waitress when she met Schwimmer, and quickly packed up for Los Angeles when their relationship heated up.
