Desperate Housewives star Marcia Cross is expecting her first child with husband Tom Mahoney, PEOPLE has learned exclusively and the actress’s rep confirms. The baby is due in April.
Cross, 44, and Mahoney, 48, a stockbroker, got married in June after dating for more than a year.
They became engaged in August 2005. “She’s over the moon,” Cross’s Housewives costar Eva Longoria told PEOPLE at the time. “I’m so excited for her. It’s so beautiful to see her this happy and so in love.”
Cross, recently nominated for a best actress in a comedy Emmy, plays uptight Bree Van de Kamp on the ABC series, which begins its third season on Sept. 24.
