Winnie Cooper's pregnant!? Danica McKellar is due this fall

March 17, 2010 |  1:33 pm

Wonder years Danica McKellar, who broke the hearts of millions as Winnie Cooper on the late-'80s/early '90s sitcom "The Wonder Years," is expecting a baby with husband Mike Verta, People reports.

We'll pause for a moment to allow certain male fans to adjust their fantasies to this new Winnie-as-mommy reality, and fill that time by sharing the fact that the actress-turned-mathematician-author, now 35, married her composer boyfriend last March in La Jolla. 

McKellar, who told People she initially tried to put off a home pregnancy test because she was on a deadline for her third book, is nearing the end of her first trimester.

"I'm so excited," she told the mag. "I've been bursting to tell people."
