Some exciting news has just dropped!

Drop Dead Diva star Kate Levering and her fiancé, AAG CEO Reza Jahangiri, are expecting their first child, according to People.

The couple got engaged on New Year's of 2012 and plan to tie the knot this spring. They are expecting the baby in August.

“Reza and I are over the moon to be embarking on this next chapter together,” Kate says. “It’s something both of us have wanted for quite some time now.”

Kate and Reza, who are both 34, are trying to stay level-headed and take things one day at a time.

“We’re trying to be as laid-back as we can about this pregnancy, so far it’s been really enjoyable and relaxing,” she says. “No over-analyzing, no freaking out. We figure there will be plenty of that to come in the future.” 

Drop Dead Diva is returning for its fifth season after Lifetime decided not to cancel it at the last minute. In the new season, which premieres this summer, Kate's character will also be preggers.

“Life imitates art!" Kate exclaims. "I hope the writers take full advantage of the hilarities of pregnancy and make use of it in the story lines." 

“It’s going to be nice to not have to hide my big belly and have my pregnancy documented in this kind of way," Kate continues.

Then again, she's reserving the right to change her mind when she's a little further along.

“I say that now  we’ll see how I feel when I’m eight months pregnant, the size of a house, working 15-hour days in the Georgia heat!” Kate points out about wanting to work while pregnant. 

Congrats to the happy couple!
