From Broadway to baby duty: Leslie Odom Jr. is going to be a dad!

The actor, who won a Tony Award this year for his portrayal as Aaron Burr in the smash hit Hamilton, announced on Instagram Monday that he and wife Nicolette Robinson are going to be parents.

“Little one, you’re on our mind all the time. Keep eating and growing!” Odom, 35, wrote next to a photo of the couple sitting under large gold balloons spelling out the word “BABY.”

“We love you and we’re already so proud of you!” he added. “Love, your mom and dad.”

Mom-to-be Robinson, who currently stars as Jane in Showtime’s The Affair, took to her own Instagram account to share the joyous news with her followers.

“One of the greatest gifts we could ever ask for,” the actress, 28, captioned a similar photo of the couple embracing under the balloons.

“Leslie and I are so excited to share the news that we have a sweet baby on the way,” she continued, adding a heart emoji and the hashtag “#pregnant.”

This will be the first child for the couple, who met during a Los Angeles production of Once on This Island in 2008, where Odom served as both part of the ensemble cast and assistant director. They were married in 2012.

Robinson is also known for her roles on Hart of Dixie and Perfect Couples, while Odom will be familiar to non-Broadway folks for his appearances on shows like CSI: MiamiGotham and The Good Wife.
