The Flash actor, 30, announced he and his wife of two years are expecting their first child on Instagram and Twitter Friday.

“One of us is actually pregnant. @italiaricci,” Amell joked in his caption, posting a photo of his faux baby belly alongside Ricci’s real bump.

The actress, 32, also shared the baby news on her social media pages, along with a hilarious warning about becoming parents who overshare photos of their child.

“We will not take ridiculous portraits of this kid. We will not take ridiculous portraits of this kid. We will not take ridiculous portraits of this kid. We might take ridiculous portraits of this kid,” she captioned the same snap.

“We most certainly will,” joked Amell in the comments of her post.

Amell and Ricci wed in October 2016, just over two years after they got engaged in August 2014. The dad-to-be proposed one month after celebrating their six-year dating anniversary.
