Actress Amanda Fuller tells PEOPLE she'd been told it would be "nearly impossible" for her to get pregnant due to chronic illness and endometriosis
Amanda Fuller is going to be a mom!
Fuller says that the pregnancy came as a surprise, as she’d been told by doctors that conceiving would be “nearly impossible” due to chronic illness and endometriosis.
“After battling chronic illness and endometriosis my whole life and being told for years it would be nearly impossible to get pregnant, my love and I are expecting a little miracle baby!” she tells PEOPLE. “We are shocked, terrified and elated — and just pray we can be our best selves in bringing our little angel into this world.”

Endometriosis is a reproductive condition in which uterine tissue grows outside of the uterus, causing cramping, chronic pain and, often, fertility complications.
Fuller — who stars as Kristin, the oldest daughter of Tim Allen‘s Mike Baxter, on the Fox sitcom — revealed on Instagram last month that she took a special babymoon trip to Crater Lake National Park in Oregon.
“Releasing my inner Ansel Adams,” she captioned a scenic black-and-white photo.

“Happy first official dad day to the most handsomest future papa,” she wrote on Instagram. “This lil bear and I are the luckiest. There is no human on this earth I could even imagine venturing into this terrifying chapter with.”
“Together, we can do anything,” Fuller continued. “Here’s hopin’ he looks as good as you do in a lime green suit!”
