Ugly Betty star Ashley Jensen, 38, and her husband, Terrence Beesley, are expecting their first child, Ashley’s rep has confirmed.
The confirmation comes after much speculation. Ashley first sparked rumors earlier this month when she was seen with a distinctly swollen belly as she walked her dog in a Los Angeles park.
In the past, pictures of Ashley with a bump had been attributed to her role on Ugly Betty, in which her character Christina fell pregnant.
Ashley told People magazine that she is excited about the news.
Last year, when asked if Ugly Betty’s success meant she was delaying having a family, Ashley replied, “If I get pregnant, I get pregnant. They’ll either deal with it or they’ll recast me.”
