There’s more cause for celebration for newlyweds Stacy Keibler and Jared Pobre: they’re expecting a baby this summer, Keibler’s reps confirm to PEOPLE.

“More blessings!! We’re an elated family-to-be!” the couple tells PEOPLE of their happy news.

Keibler, 34, and Pobre, who married on a beach in Punta Mita, Mexico on March 8, are over the moon about becoming parents.

“I’m extremely excited about starting a family and building a future with Stacy,” says Pobre, 39, CEO of Future Ads, a private interactive firm.

Keibler shared the happy news on social media Monday. “Look what we’ve got cooking! A Bun’dle of love!” she wrote along with a photo of her baking bun.

“We’re really eager to start a family,” Keibler told PEOPLE before exchanging vows in front of a small group of family and friends.

“Both Jared and I didn’t think that we were ever going to get married or have kids… When you meet the right person, everything changes.”

The parents-to-be were friends for five years before sparks flew and romance blossomed last fall.

“I’m so excited for the new chapter in my life,” the actress and TV host says. “I’m so ready for it. I feel for the first time like I’m really fulfilled and at peace.”

“They are incredibly happy,” says a friend of the baby news. “This is something they have talked about from the beginning.”

This will be the first child for the couple, who spent the weekend in the kitchen, sharing their creations on Keibler’s Instagram account. “What do [you] think we’re gonna cook up tomorrow?” she asked Sunday evening. The answer? A bun in the oven.
