Pieterse announced her pregnancy in May 2020 on the couple's two-year wedding anniversary, writing on Instagram at the time: "We will be welcoming a precious little human this October! Today marks our 2nd wedding anniversary and what better way to share our joy than on the day when our lives changed forever (the first time😉)."

The pair tied the knot at a castle in Ireland in May 2018 after becoming engaged in December 2015.

"Motherhood is officially my favorite role ever!" she continued in her announcement before thanking Sheaffer "for making me a mom and for always being my unwavering rock and safe place."

"You bring out the adventurer in me and I feel like my truest self when I'm with you, luckily that's all the time!" Pieterse added. "I love every part of you with every part of me and will continue to love who you are and who you become especially as we enter this brand new chapter."

Last July, the actress opened up to PEOPLE about being "concerned" about conceiving a child while suffering from a hormone condition called polycystic ovary syndrome, or PCOS. She called her pregnancy "an absolute blessing."

"Just the fact that we were able to get pregnant was such a blessing because with PCOS that made me nervous," she said at the time. "A lot of women have infertility issues and so we were expecting more difficulty, so it's been an absolute blessing that we were able to just get pregnant by ourselves."

The pregnancy even helped Pieterse's PCOS, she said: "My hormones have been balancing out, so it's actually been a good thing [in that regard]. And I'm hoping that this will maybe even help in the future too."
