Emily Deschanel is pregnant "Bones" star Emily Deschanel and her husband David Hornsby are expecting.

This will be the first child for the 34-year-old actress and her husband. She and Hornsby, who stars in and writes for the FX comedy "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," married in Pacific Palisades in September after dating since 2007, according to People.

The baby is due sometime late this year.

Emily Deschanel is the older sister of singer and actress Zooey Deschanel. The elder Deschanel will appear as a pregnant lesbian who struggles to come out to her Catholic mother, played by Kathleen Turner, in "The Perfect Family" in 2012. Method acting anyone? The film also stars Jason Ritter and Richard Chamberlain.

Speaking of perfect families, just this week, "30 Rock" actress Elizabeth Banks welcomed a baby boy, Felix, and Kevin Federline confirmed that he and girlfriend Victoria Prince are also expecting. Nick Cannon and wife Mariah Carey have been dealing with "nerve-racking" contractions as they await their twins too.

Talk about a baby boom!
