After winning her first Emmy at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards on Saturday, the Crazy Ex-Girlfriend star, 32, announced that she’s expecting her first child with husband Dan Gregor.

Bloom, who won the Emmy for Best Original Music and Lyrics, slipped in the exciting news when asked backstage what she had planned next.

“More fun stuff. I have a tour right now called, “What Am I Going To Do with My Life Now? because the question I get asked is, what are you going to do with your life now?” she told reporters, adding that she would “hopefully write more Emmy-winning songs” as well.

“And also, I’m pregnant! So that’s what’s next for me,” she added, as the room burst into applause.
