The Canadian actress and her husband, an Australian actor, announced the pregnancy in October, almost one year after they tied the knot.

Peregrym shared the exciting news on Instagram alongside a video featuring two pairs of adult sneakers leaning against a plant as a matching pair of baby sneakers were dropped into the camera’s frame.

“There’s no more hiding it … our family is expanding!!! ❤️ #LilOakley #Spring2020,” she captioned the clip.

In December 2018, a source confirmed to PEOPLE that the couple wed in an intimate ceremony in Los Angeles.

“It was an intimate and fun evening shared with family and close friends,” the source said of the Dec. 30 wedding, adding that “of course” Peregrym’s Goldendoodle, Charly, took part in the festivities.

The actress — who currently stars as Maggie Bell on Dick Wolf’s CBS drama FBI — confirmed that she and Oakley had wed with a sweet Instagram post shortly after, when she shared two photos from their magical celebration.

“Happy New Year! Love Tom, Missy & Charly,” the Stick It alum captioned the New Year’s Day 2019 post.

As her due date approached, Peregrym had her last day on set for FBI‘s second season in early February.

“I’m feeling all the things,” she wrote on Instagram. “Sad to leave the team early, relieved to be off my feet and able to fully rest before the babe comes, scared of the future .. but mostly, grateful.”

“It’s no joke working while growing a human, and I would not have been able to do it without our thoughtful crew,” Peregrym added. “Thank you for always having my back, making sure I had grilled cheese, and being so excited about us starting a family.”
