Julia Stiles Expecting First Child

Posted on

There’s 10 things to love about this — Julia Stiles is pregnant!

The Save the Last Dance actress and her fiancé Preston J. Cook will welcome their first child later this year, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

Since the couple’s engagement on Christmas Eve 2015 at a private residence in Isla Grande, Colombia, the two have been in no rush when it comes to saying, “I do.”

“I’m not getting a ton of marital advice,” Stiles, 36, told PEOPLE in 2016. “We’re really slow on the wedding planning so I haven’t really been soliciting advice. Somebody told me about radical empathy, but I’m still trying to figure out what that means. I’m trying to figure out what makes it radical.”

The couple met on the set of 2015’s Go with Me, where Cook worked as a camera assistant.

In a recent photo taken with radio presenter Nick Snaith of Magic FM in London, Stiles can be seen cradling her baby bump.
