Shuffle the deck because a baby’s on the way! House of Cards’ Sebastian Arcelus, who plays Lucas Goodwin on the hit Netflix series, is going to be a father!

His wife, Broadway star Stephanie J. Block, couldn’t help but share the news during an August 4 interview at Sirius Radio Studios. Her baby bump wouldn’t let her!


Posing for a pic with show host Seth Rudetsky, the beaming Stephanie cradles her growing bump. How far along is she? Seth fills us in! “Breaking news!!! @StephanieJBlock 4 months to go til #BabySebOrSteph,” he captions the pic on Twitter.

Stephanie, 41, and Sebastian, 37, have been married since 2007. They co-starred in the national production of Wicked; he played Fiyero to Stephanie’s Elphaba. Sebastian has since made a name for himself on TV with House of Cards and, even more recently, HBO hit The Leftovers (he plays Doug Durst).

Oh and if you need even more trivia about this guy, the way the internet has it, he’s actually descended from Russian royalty. Sebastian’s grandmother is supposedly Princess Catherine Ioannovna of the Romanov family. But as cool as that is, we suggest taking it with a grain of salt since, well, you know how folks get about the Romanovs.

Back here in the 21st century, this will be Sebastian and Stephanie’s first child and we can’t wait to meet the little prince or princess!
