After five months spent attempting to start a family, Rescue Me actress Andrea Roth and her fiancé, producer Todd Biermann, have received their wish: The couple are expecting their first child, they tell TV Guide.

Due in mid-April, Roth, 42, says that despite a pregnancy bout with swine flu, everything since has been smooth sailing.

According to the mom-to-be, her announcement received a warm welcome by all on the set of her show, including from executive producer Peter Tolan. “He was, and is, nothing but incredibly happy and really, really accommodating for me,” Roth says.

And while Roth admits that she’s still in the dark as to whether her character will be written off the show – which is in production until May – she’s not taking any chances.

“I might have to say, ‘Sorry, but my doctor says I’m not supposed to get into any cars … planes … or be near any knives …’ ”
