Lily Rabe is with babe!

The American Horror Story veteran and her longtime boyfriend Hamish Linklater are expecting their first child together, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

News broke as the couple walked the red carpet at the 2016 Kennedy Center Honors in Washington, D.C., earlier this month. The actress, 34, wore a light-pink gown — perhaps a nod to the baby’s sex? — with a ruffled trim, posing for photos with one hand on her blossoming baby belly and letting her long blonde tresses hang loose over her shoulders.

“A couple wks ago.. Taking my baby to The White House,” the actress captioned an Instagram photo of herself taken during the same event as she poses in front of the most famous residence in the U.S., her baby bump clearly visible under a floor-length purple gown.

This will be the first child for Rabe. Linklater, 40, has a 9½-year-old daughter named Lucinda Rose from his previous marriage to screenwriter Jessica Goldberg.

Rabe and Linklater have been an item for several years, and have worked together in the past on both films and in theater. They will star together in a film adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, slated for release in 2017.
