The Maze Runner actress, 24, and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter star, 34, announced via Instagram in June that they would be adding a new member to their family.

“Happy summer from the four of us,” Walker captioned an oceanside shot of the smooching couple.

In the photo, the twosome are standing above a heart drawn in the sand alongside their French bulldog, Arnie, and their hands are perched on Scodelario’s baby bump.

Scodelario announced she and Walker were expecting a little boy with an Instagram post where she is holding a balloon that spells out “BOY” while her husband cradles her baby bump.

“I have the most wonderful friends in the world,” she wrote. “Thank you @paige167h @hanshan_x @xleahx4 for throwing us an amazing surprise baby shower. We love you, and so will your future nephew!!”
