Ashley Williams won’t have to wait 9 Seasons to meet her baby, she’s only got nine months! That’s right, the How I Met Your Mother actress is expecting her very first child with husband of three years, producer Neal Dodson, this upcoming October!

“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,” Ashley exclusively confirms with People. As if that statement wasn’t enough, the mom-to-be took to Twitter to share a snapshot of her growing belly!

“This is FOR REAL,” she captioned the photo. “So many reasons to dance. #babydodson”

This might be the couple’s first foray into parenthood, but Ashley has a lot of baby experience under her belt. Aside from her acting gig, the 35-year-old starlet is also a certified doula — a person who aids a mother both before, during, and after giving birth.

What’s more, Ashley has lent her services to over 50 births! Sure sounds like her pregnancy will be a piece a cake. But the above experience doesn’t include her role as an aunt to her sister and fellow actress, Kimberly Williams-Paisley’s kiddies.

The Father of the Bride starlet and her husband, country crooner Brad Paisley, have two young boys of their own, Huck 7-and-a-half, and Jasper, 5.  We’re sure Ashley’s nephews will be over the moon to have a little cousin to play with come fall!

Congratulations to Ashley and Neal!
